Rio de Janeiro has always been a hot spot for business travelers as Brazil’s economy is hopping. Soon set to head one of the world’s top three economies, Brazil’s business capital has beautiful beaches, incredible cultural attractions, some of the best food in the region and, now, some of the world’s best business hotels too. For business travelers taking a trip to Rio de Janeiro, you won’t find any business hotels better than these best three.
Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana – Even though it has a vacation-style location, close to one of Rio’s incredible beaches, the Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana still offers a superb business experience for any corporate traveler.
At the Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana, you’ll find 388 of the most beautiful guest rooms in Rio. Each room features massive en suite bathrooms (you won’t believe the size of the shower) Wi-Fi internet, satellite flat screen TVs, DVD player, minibar, tea and coffee making facilities, and private terraces many of which overlook the famous Copacabana beach.
The hotel has several restaurants (the French restaurant is superb), bars and cafes all offering traditional Brazilian service and hospitality – perfect for entertaining clients or relaxing after a hard day in a business meeting.
Business travelers too will love the Sofitel’s business center with all the latest technology, the various sized meeting rooms and, of course, function rooms catering to up to 2,000 people. This is why the Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana is known as one of the best business hotels in Rio.
Fasano Hotel – One of the best hotels in Rio de Janeiro, for business class and every other class, is the Fasano Hotel. The hotel’s ocean views are superb, service something to be remembered, and the hotel itself? Luxurious and stunning.
Each of the Fasano’s guest rooms and suites feature spacious en suite baths with rain showers, flat screen TVs with satellite, mini bar, Wi-Fi internet, tea and coffee making facilities and private balconies. Rooms also have large work areas, and telephone and fax lines.
The Fasano Hotel is particularly popular with business travelers who enjoy the vacation-style atmosphere of the hotel, the modern design of the guest rooms, all paired with top-notch business services.
If you’re entertaining clients, don’t miss The Fasano Al Mare restaurant, a 3-star Michelin eatery where you and your clients will enjoy superb seafood and Mediterranean cuisine. Pre or after-dinner drinks on the rooftop terrace are also a must.
Caesar Park Ipanema Hotel – One of the top business hotels in Rio, the Caesar Park Ipanema Hotel is steps from the beach and a short walk from trendy, upscale restaurants, cafes and boutiques.
The Caesar Park Ipanema is loved by business travelers for, among many other things, its Convention Center, where 200 people can attend business events while enjoying the stunning ocean views out of every window.
The hotel’s guest rooms feature marble en suite baths, Wi-Fi internet, flat screen satellite TV, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer and in-room safe. Each room also has a comfortable work area, where you can make international phone calls or catch up on report reading while looking out on the most spectacular ocean views.
The Caesar Park Ipanema has several superb restaurants serving everything from Brazilian and Italian, to full course meals or quick snacks. On Sundays, you’ll love the enormous Brazilian buffet too.
Even if you’re in Rio de Janeiro on business, make sure you take some time off and head to Ipanema Beach, right outside the hotel’s front door. No trip to Rio is complete without it.
