Alameda Santos, 1437 | Cerqueira César
The first time I ever went to São Paulo I stayed here, when it was a Sheraton, many years ago. The Portuguese luxury chain Tivoli has revamped the whole building making it into a favored 5-star hotel for heads of state and big bosses who need to bring along their entourage. Its location is top notch, right at the Paulista Avenue. There is a little park in front of it, giving guests some green space in the concrete jungle. The Tivoli boasts a Banyan Tree Spa and a bar on the top floor with nice views of the city lights.
