The 263-room Dom Pedro Palace is a classic, elegant hotel that caters to business travelers and couples looking for more amenities than one would find at a boutique. The dimly lit lobby makes an immediate impression upon entering the hotel; it features opulent touches such as marble columns, statues, and gilded furniture. The classic look is less opulent in the rooms, where the color scheme of reds, blues, and golds looks a bit dated. The long list of amenities includes two restaurants, several meeting rooms, a spa, trendy indoor pool, a small fitness center, and 24-hour room service. Though the hotel is not within walking distance of many attractions (and even those that are within walking distance can be a hike, since the hotel sits atop a hill), public transportation is easily accessible. Due to its location, guests can sometimes get a deal at the Palace hotel -- but pesky fees for Wi-Fi and parts of the spa make some guests feel nickel and dimed.
