    turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
    an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll

    You should ask the hotel specifically but it's located in a neighborhood with many restaurant possibilities so I imagine so. Be sure to try Roux, at Pena 2300, about 2-3 blocks away. Excellent, intimate place.
