I've been to Lisbon once and am planning on returning later this year, so this is a great thread!
The last time I visited, I stayed at what is now the InterContinental, slightly up the hill, across from the park. It was nice, albeit a slight uphill walk when heading back.
Looking at hotel options, I see that Hyatt is now partnered with a small hotel, the Pousada de Lisboa, way down at Praca de Comerico.
It seems these would both be extremes of each end of the main touristy corridor, from what I recall.

Does anyone recommend either of these locations, or am I better off along the main section of Av. da Liberdade, such as the Memmo Principe Real as previously mentioned above?

On my first trip to Lisbon a couple of years ago, I also stayed at the Intercontinental hotel. This past July, I stayed closer to Praca de Comercio. If I were you, I would choose Pousada de Lisboa. I think location-wise, it's easier to walk to most of the places.

Where did you end up staying? Considering a stay at Pousada de Lisboa so curious how it went!

I actually stayed at the Hotel Avendia Palace, right next door to Rossio Station and it was the perfect location. I would say the hotel itself is a bit "meh" but the location couldn't be beat. We were able to walk everywhere and it was pretty centrally located such that there were places/things to explore in all directions. I definitely had a different experience than my first visit where I stayed at the InterContinental (actually its predecessor hotel).
