Going strong from their recent W Paris opening, Starwood barrels through yet another major opening in Europe, this time with Le Meridien Istanbul Etiler. The 259-room hotel is actually, as you can see above, comprised of three separate blocks all stacked on to of one another.

Kind of a cool concept, and we'd expect nothing less from Le Meridien, which is perhaps Starwood's most design-oriented brand. But the real art here doesn't have anything to do with picture frames or collectible key cards. Judging from these new images of the guest rooms, the views of the Bosphorus are absolutely killer.

Leading us to think that, of all the "blocks," you're really better off picking a room in the top third of the hotel. As far as inspiration, we think gazing down on gorgeous, sprawling Istanbul will certainly do the trick to get the creative juices flowing.
