Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus

28 Çiragan Caddesi
Istanbul , Turkey
(800) 332-3442

The 19th-century palace features hand-painted ceilings, marble inlays, and colorful kilims offset a neutral palette in the 166 plush rooms. But the real attraction is the prime view of the Bosporus Strait. For an added surprise, head to the pool; Underwater music is soothing after a day at the bazaars.
