Holiday Inn, Ecograd open in Jeollanam-do.
From the Chosun Ilbo. A search hasn't yet brought up photographs of the hotel's exterior.
Not breaking news for people living in Suncheon, but I just read that Suncheon's classy hotel opened on December 15th. The Ecograd Hotel (에코그라드 호텔) is an 18-floor, 93-meter building in Jorye-dong with six restaurants, two bars, banquet and wedding facilities, a "Roman bath," and twelve types of suites and rooms. It was built to accommodate guests for the 2012 Yeosu Expo nearby and the 2013 World Garden Expo at Suncheon Bay.

From a 경황신문 piece last month I learned that Gwangju opened a Holiday Inn on December 10th, giving the Honam region three first-class hotels, in the article's estimation: Gwangju's Ramada rounds out the trio.
