Highs & Lows

  • Three words: Japanese ofuro baths.

  • The English brickwork façade ­— a stark contrast to the usual Sao Paulo concrete.

  • Big, luxurious apartment-like rooms and ensuite bathrooms (think marble tubs and heated towel racks).

  • Leather. Leather everywhere.

  • The quiet power of the lobby scene: espresso fueled meetings by day, and Caipirinha fueled conversations by night

  • Spa is chic, but small (don’t expect a steam or sauna).

  • No outdoor pool or roof deck is a bit of a bummer.
