GRAVITY Seoul Pangyo, Autograph Collection [Master Thread]

Mods, please accept my apologies if itís presumptuous to start a master thread. But Iíve not found a thread for this particular property.

This is a new property in Pangyo (south of Seoul) opening this month (Dec 2020).

Pictures look very nice (though some seem rendered). Also looks like the property may NOT have a lounge or sauna, according to this blog post.

Apparently only 4 suites with 300 rooms, so odds up an upgrade are small. Pricing seems to sit around 165,000 to 210,000KRW as of this writing.

If anyone has a stay coming up, would love to see actual pictures and read a review!

Didn't know the owner of this hotel is Shinsegae and they plan on building the Chosun Palace in Gangnam too. Odd that there is no lounge as it will probably be a popular hotel for business travelers.

The basic room looks very similar to the Four Points Gangnam.

I'm staying here now and the standard room is just very small. Frette linens and a Simmon Beautyrest bed though. Not a Plat or Ambassador so wasn't getting 1 of the 4 suites. I can't see anyone coming beyond Bundang staycationers or Pangyo techno valley business travelers.

Can you report on the breakfast situation?

I've stayed there for one night just to try it out and take a break from the Courtyard in Suwon where I'm staying during the week. I'm currently holding Titanium Elite status.
The building seems to be new and the interior feels "fancy" with signature smell when you enter the lobby. Underground parking is available and they said one car per room is free of charge (even though the website says "offsite parking: 6000 Won, onsite parking:: 60000 Won per night).
Check-in was a bit complicated on the basis that I was the first foreigner that member of staff has checked in, and there's apparently a lot of fear because of the current epidemic. They kept asking me for a negative PCR test and some certificate, but since I've arrived in Korea three weeks earlier, neither is required. They were relieved when I could at least provide the bill for the 14 day stay at a "government facility" (a hotel currently closed to the public) and took a copy of that, presumably to cover their bases. The staff is very friendly and ambitious, but it's clear that they are also very young and will gain more experience over time.
I was not upgraded even though on a Friday probably not all suites were taken. Suite upgrade awards also could not be used. I think there should be more than 4 suites in the entire hotel. On my floor alone I counted 3 larger rooms.
The standard room feels small, even though it isn't exactly small. However, since area around the entrance is rather spacious, the bed and sitting area (a sofa around a table) feels a bit smallish.
There's no lounge but breakfast is provided in the restaurant. I like the selection very much, and it's clearly one notch up from the Courtyard offerings -- and Courtyard in Korea is already very good.
I'll upload some pictures I've taken during my stay.







Treacherous stairs.

Thanks for the photos!
Yeah, based on these pics I would stay here for work (though just for a night or two....)
