There aren't many Starwood options in Istanbul, so I picked the W, my favourite of the Starwood brands. The hotel is styled very nicely, and is a lot darker than the other Ws I have been at. The rooms are small and there is no privacy in the bathrooms. The Spectacular Room's cabana was very nice, but there was no furniture or cushions to use to enjoy the outdoor space.
The staff was good, but nothing exceptional. There are a couple of door people that are extremely helpful and friendly, and were a big help to me.
The location is decent. The neighborhood is very nice and the hotel is just around the corner from numerous wonderful restaurants. The walk to the Kabatas tram station is further than I would have liked it to be, but there are usually taxis waiting outside if you don't feel like walking to the tram. The traffic to/from the hotel and the European side of the city can get very very bad during rush hours.
