The 118-room property is located in the Nisantasi district – the '5th Avenue of Istanbul' – on the European side of the city, overlooking the Maçka Park and the Bosphorus, and close to retail outlets as well as dining and entertainment venues.

One of the highlights is sure to be Spago, the hotel's signature, rooftop restaurant, which is the brainchild of world-famous chef Wolfgang Puck and offers an outdoor terrace area. Further dining options include Bat, the St Regis Brasserie, and the Petit "O" Bar.

The hotel, which claims to be 'balancing iconic 1920s Art Deco glamor with a modern, minimalist aesthetic' features an extensive events offer. Seven meeting rooms with state-of-the-art conference technology range in size from two smaller spaces for 12-delegate meetings, all the way up to the pillarless, 231sqm Astor Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 160 for a banquet or 300 for a reception. The Study is a fully equipped business centre and The Library can also be hired for intimate meetings.

The 950sqm Iridium Spa features three indoor pools, seven massage rooms and a hammam, while guests can work out 24/7 in the Exercise Room.
