Istanbul Edition Review

Decorated in soft, neutral tones, from sand-hued wing chairs to chocolate-brown silky drapes, the recently opened 78-room hotel—a collaboration between Marriott International and boutique hotel pioneer Ian Schrager—is a welcome respite from the busy streets of the Levent neighborhood. Following suit from the brand's inaugural (and now defunct) Waikiki Edition, the tranquil, monochromatic vibe is evident throughout the premises. Guestrooms have bedside wall switches controlling every light, plus soaking tubs, bath amenities by French apothecary Le Labo, and Bang & Olufsen 42-inch flat-screen TVs. For a splurge, there's a celebrity-worthy, 2,800-square-foot Penthouse suite. The three-story spa features a locally influenced menu and a swimming pool with a giant, shell-like ceiling. Gathering spots include the Gold Bar, the go-to place for a sumptuous afternoon Turkish tea, the European brasserie-inspired Cipriani restaurant, and an on-site nightclub.
