    How bad is the location? Can you take the ferry to the European side? The hotel itself looks reasonable, and that is a great rate.

    Have not looked into it too much. We are staying at the Doubletree Old Town this summer so that we have a central location.

    I think u can, and according to the hotel, the subway station nearby will be open later this year, it should be fairly easy to get to the old town......

    Don't know, but I checked dates for this summer, and they came up 7,500 points per night.

    It's close to a ferry terminal, so the location isn't bad communications wise. But if you do want to see the sights, i.e. the Sultanahmet area, then it will take you some time to travel each way.

    Moda is a very nice residential area, one of my favourite areas in Istanbul. It is worth a stay in its own right, and the hotel looks fabulous. At 7.500 points I am tempted to try it myself, even if my sister in law has an apartment nearby.

    Thanks for the update. We like to stay a little longer, and take our time seeing things, so it sounds as though this is a good hotel for us. For example, we might stay 8 nights, and have some time for the pool every day as well as some sightseeing. Now I have to look for reasonable airfares.

    It sounds like a good plan! The ferries are very enjoyable in the summer (outside of rush hour), so make sure you get some cruises. There are also some islands where the locals go by ferry to picnic and relax.

    I switched to Marriott a while back and can't remember the rules on altering a res [esp as a low-rung Silver]. I need to lop off a night. How should I handle this - call in? or take a 7.5k loss? TIA.

    Just call in. Normally it is no issue. However, with this being a "mistake" rate, it may be different.
