Though it's the third largest city in the world, sheer size alone is not what defines Sao Paulo. Its cosmopolitan-minded residents relish the kind of things their beach-and-mountain obsessed countrymen care less about, priding themselves on living a stylish, urbane lifestyle. The restaurants here are world-class, the art and music scene are top-notch, the nightlife unstoppable, and the shopping second to none. The pace here is faster; in many ways, one could say Sao Paulo is the New York of Brazil, while Rio de Janeiro is Los Angeles.
Along the Tiete River, the Hilton is part of the mega CENU business complex. The hotel provides underground access to the complex's shopping mall, convention center, and heliport.
This upscale hotel is an excellent option in Sao Paulo for business travelers. It's part of the massive CENU business complex, and provides underground access to a shopping mall and the convention center. Business-friendly amenities include everything from 13,000 square feet of meeting space and a staffed business center to cell phone rentals and 24-hour room service. And though it does not have a kids' club (very few hotels in Sao Paulo do), the Hilton is a surprisingly kid-friendly business hotel, with children's menus in the three restaurants and children's video rentals. Plus, though it's a bit dated, kids will likely enjoy the indoor pool, which is part of the large 24-hour fitness center. Rooms are spacious, and also well-equipped for business travelers, featuring large work desks, flat-screen TVs, and marble bathrooms. Rooms have a chain-like look with a color scheme of whites and beiges, but they still feel sleek and contemporary.
