Right off the bat, I like this hotel!
It evokes a feeling of stepping back in time. It's almost as if the hotel has been preserved from it's birth decades ago!
Tripadvisor reviewers have done an excellent job rating this property, but I'll emphasize a few key points:
-Stellar location, In the heart of of SP's Paulista Avenue area, you really couldn't ask for a better spot. Central to everything.
-Lobby. They don't build them like this any more. Beautiful modern-era atrium lobby that evokes such a feeling of glamor and spaciousness.
-Service. I think many of these employees have been there for decades. They are helpful and chock-full of information. A problem with my in-room wifi was deal with swiftly and with ease.
-Clean. The maids do a really good job. The rooms are spotless and the daily service was thorough.
The rooms, oh the rooms!. You can call it a masterpiece, or you can call it retro....but it's just plain outdated!! But in all honestly, it's not a criticism.....just a fact! The beds and furniture have seen it's younger days pass by. And although the rooms may lack modernism, I still found it comfortable and certainly clean. Just keep your expectations in check: Think of a W Hotel room and sort of done a 180!!!!!!
I look forward to staying here again sometime!
BONUS: I love the lime scented shampoo and conditioner!!
