Have not stayed there, but would definitely recommend the Hyatt out of the four mentioned.

The Hilton is in attractive grounds, but definitely looks a bit worn.

The Hyatt is closer to Taksim Sq. than the Hilton, a smaller property, but very well taken care of.

The Conrad is pretty far out and away from both, the main tourist drag in Old Town (Sultanahmet) and the bustling center around Taksim Sq. and the adjacent Istiklal Caddesi pedestrtian zone.

The ParkSA Hilton is somewhere in between the Hyatt and the Conrad, perched on a hill and visible from Taksim Sq., but definitely a stroll of at least 10 min. away, although I could not even find the way of how to get there precisely.

I have seen very favourable reviews of the Ritz Carlton, too, which is a pretty modern high rise opposite the Besiktas Football Stadium and only a short walk from Taksim, to name another alternative. But I guess I would opt for the Hyatt (although you are not likely to have much of a view from your room).

To clarify: I have not stayed at the ParkSA Hilton. I did stay at the Hyatt once and visited the Hilton for drinks.

I'd like to suggest you go to flyertalk.com which has threads for both Hilton and Hyatt frequent flyers and you can get great specific information about any hotels in their chains.
