Seoul’s luxury Conrad hotel understands the power of Instagram

For Seoul selfies

The stunning 434-room Conrad Seoul Hotel is part of a massive Taubman retail and eatertaiment mall (its Absolute Cinema Experience shows movies nonstop from 7 a.m. to 3 a.m). Particularly at fashion show time, every well-dressed person in Gangnam, and the rest of town, is to be seen at this hotel.  As GM Mark Meaney says, younger-generation Korean fashionistas are so addicted to Instagram that it seemed like a good idea to put a selfie board outside at the ninth floor VVertigo – so much nicer taking photos against that rather than the stunning exterior views, to the neighbouring pair of LG Towers, and over the Han River, to Namsan Mountain, and, directly to the west Yeouido Park, site of Seoul’s first airport).  VVertigo has live music on Thursdays.
