Featuring 271 rooms, the hotel offers one-of-a-kind experiences complete with attentive service and relaxed surroundings. The elegantly designed property caters to both business and leisure travelers with spacious rooms and suites and a variety of dining options offering both local and international cuisines.
Wyndham Grand Ijin Busan also boasts a rejuvenating spa, heated indoor pool with views of Namhang Bridge and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The hotel sits less than 13 miles from Gimhae International Airport, allowing guests to access top sites in the city, including Songdo Beach, Songdo Marine Cable Car and Jagalchi Market.
“South Korea offers endless opportunity for international travelers to experience new cultures, visit historic landmarks and create long-lasting memories,” said Ben Schumacher, vice president of operations, Southeast Asia & Pacific Rim, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Introducing Wyndham Grand to Busan not only adds to our growing portfolio in the region, but also unlocks remarkable experiences for guests in a vibrant city with world-class amenities to make their stay special.”
The new property joins other recent Wyndham Grand openings, including Wyndham Grand Krakow Old Town.
