A great nights rest in a comfortable, clean hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We had a one night layover in Rio on our way back to the States and we really just needed a simple hotel. This by far exceeded our expectations. Gorgeous lobby and guest rooms, the staff was friendly (most spoke excellent English), nice room service, good mini-bar, and cozy, comfortable beds. They provided extra pillows for us. The bath towels were huge and lovely. They even held our baggage for us after we checked out so that we could go to lunch without hauling our bags around. This was the perfect spot for our needs.
