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
I visit S. Paulo for business often. This time I decided to try the Intercontinental Hotel. I was very impressed. Very well located, the amenities and rooms are quite good. But what impressed me most was the staff. Brazilians are known to be friendly but this was exceptional . They friendliness, the professionalism and the attitude towards the guest are amazing. There was one staff at the reception with then name Maesta that particularly made the difference and excelled in customer service. Good job Maesta. Good job Intercontinental. Keep up!
The first impression at any place is in the front desk. I was gladly and kindly attended by MAESTA .
He was very professional, takes his time explaining about the hotel services and facilities
It makes me feel at home !!!
My favorite hotel in São Paulo is Hotel InterContinental and my most recent visit was especially wonderful due to Maesta at the Reservation Desk who was always helpful and responsive to every request I made. The next time you come to this city, consider staying at this hotel and seeking out Maesta!
