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 location is very convenient! The service is great. The front desk manager named MAESTA is very customer care. He is detail oriented and would make everything right for your needs. I would love to give him a five star rating. He gave me a very good deal to upgrade the room. Later on I found my company budget does not cover the upgrade charge, so I have to cancel that. MAESTA was very kind to help me handle all the situation. Thanks very much!
First trip to this hotel & Sao Paulo and really enjoyed our stay.
The hotel is very well located, and modern. The room was a good size, with all the expected amenities. Breakfast is also very good, with an extensive buffet spread.
All of the staff we interacted with were very pleasant. The gentleman (did not get his name) at the restaurant for the breakfast buffet was a real pleasure to see each and every day. Also, Renata, Cyro & Isabela helped us tremendously in everything we asked for. What a tremendous staff at this hotel and we would go back without question.
Location is the key to this hotel. The bed is also very comfortable. But that is it.
The rooms look old and drab. The bathroom seems to be a recollection of how life used to be in the 1980s...
My biggest grip, however, was with the service provided by the Front Desk. They were inattentive and borderline rude during both check-in and check-out, as they kept calling me to check how much longer I would stay in my room - even though it was still not even close to my check out deadline.
Visited as part of a work trip, and really enjoyed my stay.

I also used the hotel car service to and from GRU airport. It was quick and efficient.
Would recommend a stay here!
I checked into this hotel on May 25th and left on Friday, May 31st. I arrived early from the US after 20 hours of travel and Maestá checked us in and allowed us to check-in early, which was beyond appreciated. The hotel property is clean, beautifully designed and the food is amazing. However the staff is what I most appreciated. Everyone was so helpful, kind and professional at the restaurant, Renata at Concierge and the front desk staff like Maestá helping us get taxis. Thanks for a great stay!
