Grand Hyatt Istanbul
The Grand Hyatt Hotel near Taksim Square in Istanbul has a lot going for it. With 360 luxury rooms, suites, and apartments, two restaurants, a Gaia Spa & Fitness Centre, a tennis court, Turkish bath, and arguably the best pool in the city. But in a city of intense population density and traffic congestion, the hotel’s prime central location remains perhaps its best feature. Rooms are bright, airy, modestly decorated, and fitted with polished woods, marble, and top-quality linens.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
