Jin Young, an open-minded and energetic woman, works for the Seoul Hotel. Her ex-boyfriend Tae Joon resigned and left for Vegas three years earlier due to an accident with a guest. However, the owner admired and had greater faith in Tae Joon than his own son, Young Jae. When the owner died, his wife decided that Jin Young must go to Vegas to bring Tae Joon back so he could help run the hotel, which was falling into pieces. Their rival, Kim Book Man, was determined to acquire the Seoul Hotel. (Source: Soompi) Edit Translation

I stumbled on Hotelier by chance, looking among the most famous dramas of 2001 and it was the best thing that could have happened to me.
The story is very well written above all. No free events that appear out of nowhere as it does happen in many of the latest dramas. It's a classic story (the good ones will never happen to be the bad ones or vice versa) but with very interesting dramatic twists and well constructed characters learning important lessons for the final.

It's assumed that the main characters are 4, but from the beginning it seems that the main couple is that of the hotel managers and their complicated love story; however, when Frank and Yun Hee appear the story gets complicated, and that's great XD
I have to confess that I fell totally in love with the "Yoon Ah-Yong-joon" couple , I never had seen them in any other drama and seeing them here made me their number one fan, they are one of the best couples I've ever seen. On the other hand, I must say that during the first three quarters of the drama I didn't like the character of Hye Kyo because she was very arrogant, but in the final episodes, her character was more sensitive and I ended up liking her.

About music, there are two songs that I found great and that's why I qualified music with 9: "For Love" and the lovely "The Day You Come to Me" by Kang Chul. Although the drama hasn't a very diverse soundtrack and usually repeated this last song for all the romantic scenes, the melody and lyrics are as beautiful to me that I don't think that devalues the drama in any way.

In short, I think this is definitely one of the best classic dramas out there and should not be missing on your watchlist, especially because you will be satisfied with the end... although it leaves something to the imagination XD. Highly recommended!!!

I disagree with the other review. For me this drama is just one of the bests! The love story was certainly there. You can feel and smell it. The subtle and obvious ways of Frank to show his feelings to Seo Jin Young melted me down to my feet. He is just soooo romantic. The scene in the employee entrance' door where Frank closed the glass doors in their left and right sides so Seo Jin Young can focus to only him as he told her he loves her was.. oh my gosh! It was just so beautiful you would suddenly want to be a Hotel Manager and look for an M and A Hotel Guest Guy to fall in love with. This is a really good romantic drama. I promise!

I would have given this an overall 10 but because the music didn't get to me like the OST of the recent dramas did, I thought it needed improvement in that area.
