Happy Birthday! THE PLAZA Seoul, Autograph Collection

January 2, 2017
  • THE PLAZA, Korea's first Autograph Collection Hotel, celebrates first anniversary of partnership with special promotions

A year ago, THE PLAZA raised the bar, becoming the country's first Autograph Collection Hotel – the Marriott brand of boutique hotels that are handpicked for their exceptional design and attention to detail. Since joining the Autograph collection, THE PLAZA has delighted its guests with an upscale hospitality experience with benefits of a global hotel brand.

To celebrate the first anniversary of its partnership with the Autograph Collection, for a limited time, THE PLAZA will run a special promotion event "Happy Birthday! THE PLAZA Seoul, Autograph Collection" for guests who have shown their love for The PLAZA and the Marriott Hotels. From January 2nd through the end of February 2017, a variety of discounts and perks will be offered.

Hotel guests will be able to receive double Marriott Rewards points for their Winter Season, Weekend, or Lunar New Year packages stays that were booked via THE PLAZA hotel's web site or the Marriott Rewards web site.

Restaurant patrons can also receive a 30% weekday and 20% weekend discount on lunch or dinner at the Seven Square buffet restaurant when they show they can log into Marriott rewards. The Seven Square features a luxurious dining experience with the chef's special touch of care on a wide range of cuisines designed around the core concept of "whole & mighty foods" that tries to preserve the food's natural texture and wholesome nutrition by minimizing the processing and handling of fresh raw ingredients.

A spokesperson for the hotel stated that "the special offers are a part of our efforts to promote THE PLAZA - Korea's first Autograph Collection hotel - to more of our valued guests and become not only Korea's leading hotel brand but also one of the world's top luxury hotel names."

Marriott Rewards is a free membership program where its members can earn points with every stay at a Marriott International hotel or earn points for various everyday spending. Points can be redeemed for one of over 250 special rewards including complimentary stays at one of over 4,000 Marriott International hotels in 19 brands across 80 countries around the world, airline miles, car rental service, cruise trips, and more.
