Luxe rooms, a chic bar and a French-Portuguese restaurant on tree-lined boulevard, Avenida da Liberdade
Behind a grand façade on Lisbon's tree-lined boulevard Avenida da Liberdade, this luxe hotel combines cutting-edge style and a classy location. A huge revolving door leads through to an elegant lobby furnished with pale stone, dark wood and red and gold flourishes. The ground-floor Intra-Muros bar is glamorously decked out with scarlet upholstery, gilt vases, bronze gongs and works from 1920s China and Macau, evoking the city's Oriental connections.
Bed and Bath
In the guestrooms, a palette of creamy rose and ochre is offset by dark wood furniture and red silhouette prints. Extremely comfortable MyBeds (King, Queen or Twin) make a lazy room service breakfast all the more appealing. They come with down pillows, but hypoallergenic bedding is available on request. Black-and-white bathrooms have rainfall showers and luxe toiletries from Hermès and Lanvin. There's a good mix of techy amenities and luxe extras, such as iPod docks and free WiFi and a turn-down service that includes spring water and chocolates.
The Intra-Muros lobby bar is a top spot for classy cocktails and serves an impressive portfolio of port and Madeira labels. Wines from the Douro, Alentejo and Setubal vineyards are on the menu at the AdLib restaurant, where chef Daniel Schlaipfer offers French-Portuguese fusion dishes. There are lots of great bars and restaurants nearby too. The hotel’s Golden Key concierges can provide suggestions and make dinner reservations. There's no spa on-site, but in-room massages can be arranged to soothe the kinks after a day’s sightseeing. For drivers, the hotel’s underground garage is a boon in a part of the city where parking spaces are very hard to find.
In the Area
Take a guided tour of Lisbon’s mind-blowing street art. The city has become a world graffiti capital and the local government even has a department dedicated to promoting it. Take the Elevador de Santa Justa from Baixa to Largo do Carmo, a neo-Gothic wrought iron elevator dating from 1902. It was state-of-the-art when it opened, and the views from the 150-foot-high platform are still impressive. The Museu Calouste Gulbenkian has a wondrous collection of 6,000 ancient and modern artifacts and works of art, and on Sunday afternoons it hosts free concerts. Try your luck at Casino de Estoril, one of Europe’s oldest, grandest and biggest casinos. Non-gamblers can enjoy its glitzy club, Jezebel, which transfers to nearby Tamariz Beach in summer.
