We’ll be back!
I picked a hotel last minute in Istanbul, so I looked at names I knew from the states. I ended up with W because it looked like it had the best location from the map, the ritz, Hilton, and Marriott all looked out of the way and I’m so glad I picked W. The location is perfect! It’s right next to the besiktas ferry boat marina which means it’s a quick boat trip away from just about anywhere in Istanbul, and there are plenty of taxis to take you anywhere you’d like. The service is top notch. It’s located in one of the nicest parts of towns where you can’t just walk into a restaurant without a reservation, but W has the best concierge ever. They give the best restaurant recommendations for foodies and as soon as you pick they’ll make a reservation so by the time you’re at the restaurant (even if it’s withib five minutes) the waiters are eagerly waiting their guests from the W. Everywhere we went, we noticed treatment at restaurants was 10x better with a reservation from the W. I am so happy I picked this hotel, the concierge gave amazing restaurant recommendations that I wouldn’t have found myself searching through yelp and my definition of a great vaca is one with great food. One night we were craving fruit but it wasn’t on the room service menu - we ended up ordering it anyway and it came within 10 minutes at most! This place has the best service, I think because it’s much smaller than other American chain hotels in Istanbul, so everyone knows your name.

A very nice hotel in a great part of town!
This was a very nice hotel! When we arrived, our room was not ready as it was only 9am; however, the hotel front desk made every effort to get us checked in as early as possible. They even gave us Wi-Fi access while we waited. The hotel is in a good part of town, close to the Naval Museum and accessible to the tram, which can take you to places like the Spice Bazar, among others. There is also a pretty nice night club/lounge area that is very vibrant on weekends. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely recommend this hotel.
