Beautiful, Elegant Hotel

Montvale, New Jersey

Lovely rooms and great location. The staff is very helpful and courteous. The food in the restaurant is very good especially the breakfast! The only issue was with the elevators. They were very slow. Otherwise a great hotel

South America - First stop of a 28 day holiday

Liverpool, United Kingdom

The Belmond group of hotels are excellent. The Copacabana Palace in Rio is beautiful and the service is excellent as are the rooms. The only problem is that when you stay at other 5 star hotels, many do not reach the Belmond standard. It is the only place to stay in Rio.
