Brasilia and the West Hotels
Brasília's hotels cater primarily to business executives and government officials. Most hotels, from the upscale resorts to the budget inns, are found in the Hotel Sectors and along Lago Paranoá. For ease in exploring the city, try to stay in Plano Piloto, close to most architectural landmarks, shopping malls, and a number of good restaurants. West of Brasília, deluxe accommodations are
scarcer. In the Pantanal, the fazendas (farms) are quite spartan, but there are a few extremely comfortable jungle lodges with nearly everything you could need.
When you book a room, note that a 10% service charge will be added.
