My wife and I stayed at the W Istanbul for 8 nights while on vacation in December -- the longest stay ever for us in 1 hotel.
Best thing about the W Istanbul: the staff. Every staff member -- from the concierge to the front desk to room service -- was uniformly friendly, helpful and professional. They really cared and within a couple of days were calling us by our names. We even met the General Manager who stopped for a couple of long, friendly, informative chats.
The location in a nice neighborhood away from the central tourist zone was a plus. We took taxis or metro to the central sites and then retired to our truly local neighborhood for dinners with locals instead of tourists. The shops in the neighborhood were also interesting.
The W brand means rooms that are more on style than luxury and that's not what we normally like but we knew that going in so it was not a big deal for us. The lobby was very cool and fun to hang out in before heading out for a day of sight-seeing.
We would gladly return.
As a lifetime Starwood Platinum member I've stayed in Starwood properties across the world and we found the staff of this W Istanbul as helpful and consistently
