It has 254 rooms, five restaurants and bars, along with The Great Hall on the third floor for events.
This hotel is part of the Shinsegae Josun Hotels & Resorts Group, which also runs the Westin Chosun (formerly the Chosun Hotel, established in 1914), L’Escape Hotel [레스케이프호텔] and Four Points By Sheraton Hotels [포포인츠바이쉐라톤 서울강남] .
The Belle-Essence Seoul Hotel [벨레상스 서울호텔], formerly located on this site, was first established as the Renaissance Seoul Hotel [르네상스 서울 호텔이] in 1988, which catered to business and leisure travellers. It was later rebranded in 2016 as the Belle-Essence Seoul Hotel [벨레상스 서울호텔], but was demolished at the end of the same year. The new building that houses Josun Palace today was completed in November 2020.
