I spent four nights at the Park Hyatt before moving to the Ramada where I had to attend a conference (my company would not pay for a Park Hyatt room). This was my second stay at a Park Hyatt property, and as such I had high expectations - which were mostly fulfilled, but the experience was not as remarkable as the Tokyo Park Hyatt. I think I have to try a few more to see if the Tokyo hotel is really the expection. I found it impressive how they kept the typical Park Hyatt cold and sober elegance and yet managed to give it the turkish touch. The interior designer clearly did an excellent job. Of course it broke my heart when I had to leave and move to the Ramada.
There's two things I found a bit - problematic. The location is far from the tram or subway, and you either walk (across a park) or take a cab. Other hotels in the same area are closer to public transportation. I did not really mind, but expected some kind of shuttle service like in Tokyo. And then there's the internet fee, totally inappropriate.
I think I will give the Hyatt Regency a try next time in Istanbul. The location is closer to Taxim, and the pool is larger.
