    Just wanted to give quick about my stay in Seoul and Yokohama .

    IC Seoul coex: been staying there for past 2 + years. Great location, very helpful concierge, brasserie has great breakfast in morning. I commented to GM Darren morrish that they need to have to go box for breakfast and he immediately implemented it. Asian live is great place to try amazing food. Opposite to
    Buddha temple which is really amazing and peaceful ( check first 2 videos). Gym opens only at 6 am kinda late for me since I like to start earlier. All said moved all my business from jW to coex. Btw if you craving for little poker action its connects to casino.

    IC Yokohama. Is all about views for me. Best view of bay and sun rise. See the pics. Hotel is little older. Breakfast is like any hotel nothing extraordinary. It connects to queens plaza and minato mirai train station for easy access. Bus service to haneda and narita. Lots of access to international food. Stay doesn't really advertise the benefits of ambassador status. Some of them didn't even know. Seoul coex is way better in recognizing your status.

    I've stayed there several times, and another thing you forgot to mention is the massive under ground shopping mall and the aquarium. Oh, my wife had lunch at the chain restaurant owned by Jackie Chan the movie star, she said the food was surprisingly good.

    I've stayed at both the IC Coex and the IC Grand Seoul Parnas (they're literally opposite each other on the same square!) many, many times. TBH, I think I prefer the IC Grand Seoul Parnas in terms of RA recognition and upgrades, though the IC Coex can have some semi-decent views of the river. Don't forget to get a reservation at Table 34 (on the 34th floor); it's an absolutely fantastic restaurant. Like Freebird mentioned, they're both situated on top of one of the largest underground shopping malls in the world, and they have a great aquarium too. Plus, a Kimchi museum!:) I've enjoyed virtually all my stays with them both.

    Sorry to mention the underground shopping, loads of restaurants, food courts, movie theatre. I did actually visit the 34th floor it does great view of Han river food and drinks albeit little pricy even for my expense account :). Can't wait until the new subway station is complete to provide easy access.
