As a platinum member of SPG, I stayed at many SPG properties including St. Regis in other countries. And, the 'St. Regis Istanbul' is one of the ‘must visit' hotel in the world. It is baby hotel just opened, but gave me the great experience ever for 3 nights. My purpose of visit was business and everything was perfect. All staffs were very friendly, generous, and the butler services were superb. The location was fantastic for shopping, conference, and/or relaxation. The quality of restaurant and bar was great. Especially, the bedding was very comfortable ever. Some noises by traffic and dogs barking at night from Macka park in front of the hotel, and the swimming pools without long lane were little bit disappointing, and sushi plate at bar need more improvement but all above were not matter for me at all. And one more thing, many taxi drivers did not know the 'St. Regis Istanbul', so more advertisement to them is highly recommended ;) I deeply appreciate again for the hospitality of all professional staffs (especially guest recognition manager Nalan / head concierge Burak / Seraht, Ahmet at Brasseries / Alp and Yilmazhan at Petit 'O’ bar / butler Zehra, William, and Burak / Tevfik at welcome desk / Hakan at bell desk / Rui GM). You all made my stay and I promise to visit again with my family in a near future.
