Movie, dinner, talk, repeat. There comes a point in every relationship when you really feel like you're doing the same thing all the time… and no matter how much chemistry you have, and how much you really love each other, it honestly gets a bit boring. So how about spicing things up with some nights at a hotel? If you have kids, get a babysitter. If you're working, turn off your phones. Come to these romantic hotels, slip on something comfortable, and enjoy the view, the city and each other's company.

Ask anyone where the hippest hotel in Seoul is, and most of them would pick the JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul. Opened just last February, this five-star boutique hotel is marked by its classy interior design. At 170 suites and 11-stories, this hotel is relatively smaller than other chains. However, the modest building manages to make up for its size with its grand presence.
