Not all suites are created equal in a never-ending #Travelife, and I’ve stayed in many of the most wonderful suites around the world.
Just offhand, I suddenly remembered how much I loved the suites of the Shangri-la Paris.
The last suite I stayed in at the Shangri-la Paris had a lovely terrace and double views, but this isn’t very unusual for a luxury hotel.

THE BEST THING ABOUT
A SUITE AT THE SHANGRI-LA PARIS
I guess the best thing about this Shangri-la Paris suite was its height.
You enter this particular suite via a formal entrance and long private corridor with an extra bedroom right by the entrance. Then, when you get to the suite proper, there’s a living room and several seating areas in a spacious room that’s two storeys tall.
Suite 1453 of the Swissotel Bosphorus
You don’t feel like you’re in a hotel at all, with a two-storey living room. It’s really more like someone’s really stylish apartment in the best neighbourhood of Paris.
Then the master bedroom is accessed via a pretty majestic staircase to one corner of the living room.

THE BEST SUITE RIGHT NOW AT THE SWISSOTEL BOSPHORUS IN ISTANBUL
Meanwhile, the top suites of the Swissotel Bosphorus are still being constructed.
However, at the moment, the best suite at the Swissotel Bosphorus is #1453, which is really a two-storey open plan bachelor bad with very modern interiors and the best views I have ever seen from a hotel room in Istanbul.
There are lots of beautiful suites in Istanbul, but there aren’t very many suites with adjacent open terraces.
And I have to say that I probably stayed in the two suites with the most beautiful views in the entire city on this recent trip to Istanbul, living a #Travelfe.
Incidentally, 1453 is a very significant year for Turkey as this was the year of the fall of Constantinople. In other words, the very year that Istanbul was conquered.
What a coincidence is that? Because, among many things, suite 1453 at the Swissotel Bosphorus is the perfect pad for a bachelor billionaire intent on a different kind of conquering of Istanbul — whether for work or pleasure. Or both.
And, of course, this suite is also perfect for living a never-endingly eventful #Travelife.
