Fodor's Review

Each room in this mammoth, gleaming-white hotel has a balcony overlooking Barra Beach. The decor is contemporary, with white walls, brushed nickel and mahogany accents, skillful lighting, wide-screen TVs, and clean lines. Be prepared to rent a car or spend a good deal of money on taxis when staying in this neighborhood, as there's no metro station (although an extension is planned ahead of the 2016 Olympics) and the bus service is unreliable. The hotel is popular with business travelers attending nearby conventions.
