RYSE | Seoul

The DNA: Hongdae is Seoul’s creative district, known for its arts school. Showcasing self-expression and individuality at every turn, the RYSE hotel captures the neighborhood’s neon candy box aesthetic in a sophisticated way. A member of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, interiors fuse bare concrete and industrial brass metal with glossy pink flooring and modern art installations. The hotel’s art concept starts from an artistic outdoor mural and continues through the lobby where pop-up exhibitions feature unexpected hanging sculptures.
