Conceived and designed by globally renowned firm, Michaelis Boyd, the hotel’s interiors collide energetically: bare concrete and industrial brass metal meet glossy pink flooring and modern art installations reign. The hotel’s art concept starts from an artistic outdoor mural and continues through the lobby where pop-up exhibitions feature unexpected hanging sculptures.
RYSE features 272 guest rooms, including 14 suites; each designed to highlight a prominent art piece from an exclusive collection for the hotel.
Some suites have been specially customised by creative masterminds including fine art photographer Laurent Segretier and collage artist Charles Munka, Seoul-based sculptor Yeojoo Park, and multimedia storyteller Maekan.
These Artist Suites are curated with strong aesthetics and individuality to embrace the youth culture of Hongdae.
The casual gourmet restaurant, Long Chim, takes Thai street food and turns it into a culinary journey, delivering authentic, spicy and fresh tastes straight from Bangkok.
Elsewhere, Tartine Bakery & Café from San Francisco brings refreshing and natural flavors to homemade treats, while three three bartenders from Seoul’s hottest and most recognized bar, Le Chamber, are teaming up to bring their world championship skills to the hotel’s rooftop bar & lounge, the Side Note Club.
“Autograph Collection Hotels is growing in lockstep with global demand from travelers for independent hotels and individual experiences when traveling: from dining to design,” comments Jennifer Connell, Vice President, Global Brand Marketing & Management, Autograph Collection Hotels.
“With every touchpoint thoughtfully-crafted and guest experience personally-curated, RYSE is the perfect addition to the collection; and we are thrilled to introduce it as the brand’s second hotel in the ever-evolving city of Seoul.”
