Choice Hotels has opened its first property in Turkey.

The 135-room Clarion Hotel & Suites Istanbul Sisli, which includes 45 long-stay suites, is located between the city's Levent and Taksim business districts.

The new-build property contains a lobby-lounge with a bar and restaurant, and three individual, and combinable, conference rooms for up to 200 people.

It also features a spa area with a sauna, massage room, hairdresser and a gym.

Mark Pearce, Choice Hotels' senior vice president, international division, said: "We are very excited about the opening of the first Choice Hotel in Turkey with the Clarion brand.

"Turkey is an emerging economy with an extremely attractive hotel market and Istanbul has become a thriving destination for business and leisure travellers."

Earlier this year, Choice Hotels announced it is to debut its Quality Hotel and Clarion Hotel brands in China (see news, April 24).
