Great location. Great Front desk staff.

Washington DC, District of Columbia

The location is perfect. Sits directly on Copacabana Beach. Food options walking distance. SAFE. Pool is small. Elevators take time. View is very good. You can see Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf mountain from your room. As an American traveler, no wash cloths can confuse you so bring your own. They only use HAND TOWELS in Rio which was backed up by my stay at the Sheraton Rio Resort. They also provide beach towels and and beach chairs FOR FREE. FREE! The breakfast didnt appear very appealing but this was something I encountered at most non American restaurants. Housekeeping was IMPECCABLE. As a Housekeeping Manager in Washingtion DC, I was blown away by the cleanliness of my room upon arrival and the stayover service I received. Truly 5 stars. The roof top pool is mostly for lounging, tans and socializing.

Business stay

I stayed here for one night only during a quick visit to the city last july and found the service, staff and accomodations all to be outstanding. The rooms are nicely appointed and decorated. The food is good and the reception goes out of their way to help you. The elevator have keycard access for all floors for security. Will bring my family here. I like the hotel and love the location.
