We were supposed to stay here one night only, but thanks to Hurricane Sandy our stay was extended to three nights. We are Mariott Gold members and we didn't receive an upgrade or a free breakfast at this hotel. The breakfast is 20 Euros, which is completely outrageous. There are a lot of options for breakfast, but certainly not worth the price. They have an airport shuttle that leaves every hour on the hour, which in my opinion is rather infrequent. Rooms clean and otherwise totally unremarkable, staff will check you in and check you out but service wasn't anything to write home about.
The location of this hotel is terrible, it is a 15 min. ride to the airport, and if you need to get into town, you have to take the shuttle to the airport in order to take the metro. So basically it's far away from both the city and the airport.
If I could do it again I would stay at the Holiday Inn airport hotel, they have a free shuttle into the center of Istanbul as well as a free shuttle to the airport.
