The Gran Estanplaza possesses the ageless flair of Hollywood’s golden era.
With a design that combines classical opulence with rich, colorful Brazilian accents and all the expected luxury amenities, this American-style hotel deserves every one of its five stars. Its balconies provide a panoramic view of the neighborhood, a great bonus because there is always a lot to look at: the Gran Estanplaza sits right at the heart of Berrini, the business district.
The hotel also features an excellent indoor pool, a fully-equipped gym (which holds yoga and other athletics classes), a sauna and a massage center. The lavish Plaza Lounge serves hair-raising Brazilian coffee and a range of cocktails.
The Gran Estanplaza does not try anything new—but it offers a time-honored version of the best.
