Just off Avenida Paulista, in the Jardins district
The Tivoli Sao Paulo Mofarrej is located in the Jardins district right by the busy street Avenida Paulista. Jardins is an upscale area, named for its many tree-lined streets and parks. The neighborhood is also known for its great restaurants and upscale shops. The city's Museum of Art (MASP) is also close by.
With a population around 18 million, Sao Paulo is a huge city. Not only is it the largest megalopolis in South America, it's also the third largest city in the world. The restaurants here are world class, the art and music scene are excellent, the nightlife unstoppable, and the shopping fantastic. The pace here is faster, and in many ways, one could say Sao Paulo is the New York to Rio de Janeiro's Los Angeles.
The 220-room Tivoli Sao Paulo Mofarrej is a luxurious option near the downtown area and Avenida Paulista. Rooms are decorated in neutral colors and feature flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, and 24-hour room service, but bathrooms are on the small side. Suites and collection rooms might be worth the upgrade as they feature butler service. Hotel highlights include a spacious, light-filled lobby with a glass roof, a small outdoor pool (with odd orange tiling) surrounded by cabanas, and an upscale spa by Banyan Tree. There are several dining and drinking options on-site, including the top-level restaurant with beautiful city views. Family features include welcome gifts for kids and a policy where children under six eat free in the restaurants.
