Corporate social responsibility (CSR) perspective has been embraced by various countries. This perspective directly affects the behavior of organizations in different countries. Environmental, cultural and employee related issues create a suitable platform for those countries which lack certain aspects of dealing with the related problems. This also creates a general perspective where managerial practices of organizations are redesigned in light of universal standards of CSR. From this standpoint, organizational response to CSR problems is driven by the universal standards. Nevertheless, specific dimensions of CSR may dominate managerial practices paving the way for different kinds of practices to be forefront in different countries. In this article, we investigate the CSR perspective of the chain hotels located in Istanbul, Turkey and explore related dimensions of CSR activities using content analysis technique. The results of the study indicate that chain hotels in Istanbul are more likely to use cultural dimension of CSR perspective and less likely to use environmental and economic dimensions when engaging with the CSR problems.
