This should be your top choice in Istanbul, I got free upgrade to Suite room on Executive floor as a platinum member. They did offer everything they could for IHG platinum member.
Location: Sisli is a great area since the Old City is toooo touristic, I like here because of the clear traffic and young educated Turkish live in this area. The people in OId City always say hi to travelers but tried to ask me for money. Sisli is pretty much a CBD area, if you are coming for business, this is a great place to stay. However, I came for leisure, and the transportation is simply awesome. The metro station is 600 meters away, taking a five minutes walk from the metro station on my way back to the hotel was pleasant. The hotel can also get you a taxi whenever you need, the taxi service is not expensive. The hotel area has supermarket, restaurant and basically everything you need. A good thing is, unlike the Old City, many things are cheaper here since they don't treat you as tourist but a local.
Room: I used IHG points for Business Room and they upgraded me to the Executive suite on the 9th floor. It has a big balcony which offered me a nice view so that I could enjoy my reading. The living room is big, and the bed is comfy. Two big bathrooms offered me a lot more flexibility,and shampoo were overstocked. Two televisions in each rooms have over 50 channels.
Breakfast: The reception added breakfast for two of us, the service was good. The staff always ready to refill your coffee or tea cup, the choices for breakfast was great.
Others: The swimming pool is great, and I was given daily newspaper every morning (New York Times International). Free water, coffee, and snacks in room, the only problem is Wifi is weak on the executive floor. But it was not a big issue, but it'll be great if they can improve it.
