We weren't Globalists at the time so didn't try the breakfast but I am not surprised if the breakfast food wasn't great.

As Explorists we were upgraded to a nice corner room with great views. But if you stay here it's much better to eat outside the hotel; plenty of great food in Busan itself all around the hotel.
The paid Western food options might be some of the best in Busan. I think paid Korean food has improved since a few years ago but the breakfast has definitely declined.

They finally brought back ordering made to order eggs and savories. Koreans must have complained of the powdered eggs and French Toasts wasting away in Staubs. Double up for Western sized portions.

There are probably cheaper options with Marriot, but Marriott upgrades almost always seem non-existent on check-in, or to a "jr suite", which isn't a suite at all.
Did you complete your stay yet? Also curious about the upgrades or if we should apply an upgrade.

Unfortunately no, I was supposed to be there in a week and a half, but got COVID last week, so I don't want to risk a positive PCR on arrival, so heading to Thailand now instead.

Depends when youre going between weekday or weekend but this property will always try to put you into the Family suites at the very least. Weekends see over 90% occupancy rates and suites are harder to come by.

Use a spare TSU for the Executive Oceanview marina suite. The views are quite special and worth using a TSU.

The Westin isn't always cheaper and the rooms look like the 90s happened again. Fairfield is cheaper but a totally different stay experience.

Thank you Aventine for always being so helpful, esp with Seoul related questions. I'm going to be there a weekday so it hopefully that will work in my favor. I do have a spare TSU, but it says the executive oceanview marina is a premium suite? I'm not sure if the TSU will work for that?

Apply one to get a suite guaranteed then kindly ask for the Marina Executive suite via email to the GM, Simon Graf. A weekday they would more likely give it to you as a Globalist. The Park executive Family suite is also a TSU option and comes with an oceanview bedroom. You just lose the Marina Living room views and oceanview bathtub.

Hotel is pretty packed for the Korean vacation period. Suites probably cant be had without using SUA or buying them outright.

Breakfast still in the lower end range of PH breakfasts.
