Marriott has opened its ninth hotel in Turkey, the 212-room Renaissance Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel operating under a franchise agreement with Polat Holding A.S..

Offering views of Istanbuls celebrated Bosphorus River, the 20-floor Renaissance Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel is located on the European side of Istanbul, in Besiktas, midway between the areas of Taksim and Levent.

The hotel is situated just moments from Bosphorus main boat harbor and within easy reach of the citys cultural gems such as Saint Sophia Museum, Sultanahmet Mosque and Topkapi Palace that helped earn Istanbul European Capital of Culture status in 2010.

We are excited to open this magnificent new addition to our Renaissance Hotels portfolio in Europe, said Amy McPherson, president and managing director for Marriott International in Europe. Istanbul is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city where rich history and sublime architecture can be enjoyed alongside eclectic culture, arts and nightlife. Turkey offers tremendous opportunity for development, and we see huge potential for continued growth across all of our brands here.

The Renaissance Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel features a rooftop bar with some great city views, a lobby bar, bistro and all-day dining restaurant with outdoor terrace serving Mediterranean cuisine with Turkish specialties.

For leisure and relaxation, there is a state-of-the-art fitness centre including an indoor pool, sauna, steam room and Turkish bath.

Flexible meeting space, including a vast ballroom divisible into three, caters for all manner of meeting and social events.
