Which hotel is better for first time Istanbul trip

Hello All! For first timers in Turkey, which hotel is best- Grand Hyatt hotel or Witt Istanbul Suites? Which is more convenient and central to all the "must do" sites and shops, restaurants? We would like to be able to walk safely from hotel to some nice cafés and shops without having to always take a taxi.

Thanks!

Grand Hyatt : 10 minutes walk to Taksim square for Times Square (NY) or Piccadilly (London)like area. 15-20 minutes walk to Nisantasi for North Michigan Avenue (Chicago) or Knightsbridge (London) type area. Good restaurants, in cafes, designer and regular shops, beautiful people, no tourists.

Witt Suites : Climb hill 5-8 minutes to reach pleasant Chelsea like area for cafes and restaurants. Another 10 minutes will take you Taksim Square. Some hip shops, good ambiance, artists, expats, art galeries, antique shops, good wine and cheese shop.

Do not worry specifically about safety at any of the places you are likely to wonder about in Istanbul but take the standard precautions you would take in any large European city.
