There are three food/beverage options — the Dish Room Restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine and has an outdoor terrace and lounge bar; the Terrace Bar; and the Great Room Lounge and My Bar (pictured above) offers a selection of "light and more substantial menu items".

Amy McPherson, president and managing director for Marriott International in Europe, said: "Over the past few years we have seen robust growth in Turkey where six of our 11 hotel brands in Europe are represented, demonstrating the growing strength of our portfolio of brands...

"Everything from technology and design to meetings is being revitalised and we are very proud that the Istanbul Marriott Hotel Sisli showcases many of these innovations and represents a new standard for the brand."

Marriott this week opened its first hotel in Osaka (see news, March 10).
