This prestigious downtown hotel is synonymous with fine lodging in the region. Its architecture is German Bavarian style—a trademark of Gramado— and the room decor is elegant and sober, with dark-wood furnishings. At the recanto (lounge area) in the evenings guests can experience gaúcho traditions like chimarrão (tea brewed with yerba mate) paired with folkloric rhythms played by local musicians. The location is prime for browsing the myriad shops,
cafés, and restaurants of the city.
