Fontecruz Lisboa is working to establish itself as a trendy, sleek, and avant-garde destination and has the intimate feel of a boutique hotel. As other reviews indicate, the décor may not appeal to everyone, since the predominance of black and grey does make the rooms and hallways rather dark. Not really our style, and not conducive to working if that is your purpose, but we knew what to expect and came to enjoy the different atmosphere during a two-day stay. Our room was spacious, the bed very comfortable, and the bathroom with a walk-in shower was wonderful. Better still was the fact the room had, not a balcony but a terrace the size of the room itself with a wonderful view. Only complaint was that the room had not been made up when we returned after 5 the second day. Others experienced the same problem, leaving us with the impression that the hotel was still finding its legs. The front desk, however, was very responsive and the situation quickly remedied. As part of the Marriott chain, easy booking, generous cancelation policy, and loyalty rewards are a plus. So too is the hotel’s location, with most tourist sites within walking distance, and for those that are not, there ready access to public transportation. Unlike the other AC Hotels we have stayed in, the Fontecruz caters more to foreign tourists. But even thought this is not the place to soak up the local culture, it does provide a pleasant oasis for relaxing after exploring Lisbon.
