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).

The Rossio area is my favorite place to stay. Yes, it can be touristy but you can avoid doing the touristy things. It's convenient for walking around Lisbon, going to Sintra, and lots of great restaurants/pastry shops within walking distance. The streets above Rossio are quiet because they're one-way tor cars and very narrow, and tend to be more residential, unlike in Chiado or Barrio Alto. I stayed once in Chiado over a weekend and did not appreciate the sheer amount of noise after 1 a.m., or how many people I had to pass trying to sell me drugs. I'll be returning in April for the third year in a row because I love Lisbon so much.

I'm visiting Lisbon with my daughter for the first time in July.

Someone recommended the Sheraton, I'd appreciate opinions! Ideally we're looking for somewhere central with an outdoor pool and the Sheraton seemed to tick the boxes.

The Time Out Market is the same as the Mercado da Ribeira, in Cais do Sodré
