Accor Ambassador Korea, a joint venture between Accor and Ambassador Hotel Group, will launch its first Sofitel Hotel & Serviced Residences in Songpa, Seoul.
Slated to open in 2021, Sofitel Ambassador Seoul Hotel & Serviced Residences will feature 563 rooms and suites, an all-day dining restaurant and bar as well as meetings and events space. Leisure facilities include an indoor swimming pool, outdoor Jacuzzi, fitness, spa and kids’ room.
Set in a commercial tower adjacent to Jamsil Subway Station, the hotel and serviced residences will be interconnected to an office building and overlook Seokchon Lake Park. Besides its proximity to Lotte World, the property will also allow easy access to Gangnam Business District and Coex Convention and Exhibition Center.
Patrick Basset, COO, Accor, Upper South-east & North-east Asia and the Maldives, said: “The development of Sofitel Ambassador Seoul Hotel & Serviced Residences represents our commitment to growing Accor’s collection of luxury and premium brands in South Korea.”
Currently operating 24 hotels in seven cities across South Korea, Accor Ambassador Korea will enhance its presence in the luxury and premium segments with a pipeline of hotels, including Fairmont Seoul in 2020 and MGallery Seoul Mapo in 2022.
