With standard accommodations and in-room amenities but a great rooftop view—a postcard shot of Corcovado and the lagoon—this recently refurbished hotel is in the heart of Ipanema's shopping and dining district, a block from the beach. Back rooms have sea views, but as with most lodgings in Ipanema, guests pay a high premium for less than spectacular rooms. Business travelers, though, will feel well served, with amenities that include meeting rooms, Wi-Fi access, and
a business center. The top floor's Restaurante Grill 360° specializes in grilled lean meats and seafood, and a lavish breakfast is served here daily. A bar in the ground floor lobby serves light meals and nibbles.
