Set in the arts and banking district near Paulista Avenue, the InterContinental makes a perfect home base for work or leisure travel. A top-notch business center allows guests to stay connected, while vacation-friendly amenities including an outdoor pool on the third floor and a gym that’s open 24/7 make unwinding easy, too. The 195 modern guestrooms and suites have killer views of the pool or Sao Paulo’s rooftops, and room service is available around the clock from the hotel’s French-Brazilian fusion restaurant Tarsila.
In the Area
The hotel is just a few blocks from the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (designed by Lina Bo Bardi), the city’s top art museum and one of the best in South America, featuring more than 8,000 works of European, Brazilian, African and Asian art. For a sweet treat, nab a table at nearby Pâtisserie Douce France, where the selection of sorbets changes daily. Next, head to the Museu do Futebol. Housed in Pacaembu Stadium, the building has two floors of interactive displays on soccer history. Spend the afternoon wandering the food and produce stalls at the Mercado Municipal de São Paulo; have lunch on the mezzanine and get mortadela piled high on a French roll, Brazil’s answer to the bologna sandwich. For an upscale dinner, try the modern Brazilian tasting menu at superstar chef Alex Atala’s D.O.M. Afterward, head to Bar Brahma for a cold beer and live samba music.
How to Get There
The hotel whereas normal in terms of facilities had the best team ever , Jacky in the executive lounge is a blessing she really went out of her way to arrange things for me an make me attend the carnival in the best possible way! Concierge also (can't remember her name) was excellent, it is true that most important thing in a hotel is the Staff!!!!!
I have stayed at this location on every trip to Sao Paulo. The staff is always friendly and helpful, property is clean in a nice area. The Club Lounge offers a variety of amenities throughout the day and Ambassador members are well treated.
Where do I begin? We arrived very late on a Friday night in rainy Såo Paulo. You know as well as I do that your hotel check-in experience can make or break your entire trip. The Intercontinental São Paulo (ISP) came through in spades! These are some of the nicest hotel staff I have encountered in over 30 years. LIssandra, Gabriel, Manoel, and everyone else at the front desk were amazing. They knew my name on my second day there. They had umbrellas for me, bicycles, a late check-out, money exchange, you name it!
The lobby bar was fantastic - Sadrac and his colleagues took good care of us everyday. No pressure to buy anything, but very attentive nonetheless. Really sweet people. Service was always with a smile. He even knew there was a Beastie Boys song that resembled his name! Too cool.
Breakfast was divine - there must have been over 50 items to choose from, as well as a fresh omelette station. Elton and his team were great!
The rooms could be slightly brighter in their lighting, but that's my only concern. I can't wait to come back to Sao Paulo and to ISP in particular!
I've had the pleasure of staying at this property a few years back, and although some of the team has turned over, the level of genuine hospitality definitely hasn't changed at all.
Truly, one of the best InterContinental teams I've ever had the pleasure to come across. Cyro at the Front Desk remembered our names when checking back in after 4 days, the entire Club Lounge team is amazing, so friendly and courteous - thank you to Renata, Jaqueline, Brunna, Simone, Daniel, every person we came across had nothing but the most genuinely welcoming personality, we truly felt like we were at home. Even the GM and the Front Office Manager making sure to stop by and say hello, it really was special. Thank you!!!!!
I stay at the Intercontinental in São Paulo twice a year. The Intercontinental is a very comfortable home away from home for me. I am recognized when I arrive by familiar faces. Maesta welcomed me back with a big smile and excellent service as always. All of the staff in the hotel are more then polite, helpful and friendly.
The hotel rooms are always perfect with very comfortable beds. No complaints.
