On 17 September 2015 Marriott International announced that The Plaza, Seoul, South Korea, will join Autograph Collection Hotels, its exclusive portfolio of hotels recognised for celebrating bold individuality. The contract-signing ceremony has taken place and the alliance will become effective in early 2016.

“We are delighted that the partnership will bring together Autograph Collection and Marriott International’s strength in global marketing and sales with The Plaza’s local brand and heritage,” said Shim Kyung Seob, CEO of Hanwha Hotels & Resorts.  “This is an important milestone as the hotel celebrates its 40th anniversary next year.”

“Autograph Collection is a one-of-a-kind ensemble of independent hotels that we are fast expanding in Asia,” commented Craig Smith, President and Managing Director, Marriott International, Asia-Pacific. “The Plaza, with its rich heritage and special location as well as its quality service, will enable travellers to experience the charm of the city in style, truly fitting the brand promise of the Autograph Collection.”

All guestrooms feature eco-friendly design materials, free wired and wireless internet access and a smart touch-pad to control room temperature, lighting and other amenities in the rooms, adding convenience to guests. Nine banquet halls can accommodate up to 600 guests while the Grand Ballroom has a capacity of 450.

Hotel restaurants include TAOYUEN, a Chinese restaurant featuring modern Shanghai-style cooking; MURASAKI, a Japanese restaurant that combines modern techniques with simple and casual Neoclassic Kaiseki; and TUSCANY, an Italian restaurant helmed by Michelin-star head chef Maurizio Ceccato.
