Expedia, one of the world’s leading online travel agencies, founded the Insiders’ Select Award to recognize outstanding hotels and resorts around the world each year. The 2014 rankings were based on more than 2 million guest reviews of over 240,000 properties listed on Expedia’s website.
Oakwood Premier Coex is one of only two hotels in Seoul to make the 2014 Insiders’ Select Award, the other being The Plaza Hotel. Expedia’s website shows over 150 verified reviews on Oakwood Premier Coex, which is designated as “Wonderful!” by the travel website.
In addition to scoring hotels on a five-point scale, verified travelers can post detailed reviews and indicate whether they would recommend the hotel to others on Expedia’s website.
