Overall the experience was great. Fabulous view of the Bosphorus (from the City Lights bar) and of Taksim (from room). I think my main issue was the fact that the room felt a bit old (I have stayed at new hotels lately). A place I'd like to stay at -- but only if my employer pays the bill. The lobby and the common areas were still top notch and seemed recently renovated. It is the first hotel (out of some 50 in the last five years) that emptied the mini bar because I only registered a debit card, and not a credit card.
Things inside the hotel (haircuts, food, drinks) are expensive. But who cares when there are so many other places around?
