ParkHyatt, Seoul // This is a hotel that gets the details right; the decor is modern and streamlined while subtly referencing a more traditional Korean style. The Presidential Suite features beautifully carved wooden screens and carefully selected Korean antiques sitting alongside otherwise modern pieces. Plus, it has the world’s most dramatic bathtub which is basically giant, hollowed out boulder.
