My husband and I were married in Montevideo and we spent our wedding night at the Belmont. We picked this hotel because of the beautiful rooms downstairs that are frequently used for bridal pictures. The suite we were given was very spacious and as part of the wedding package, we were given early check in with afternoon tea, arrived after the wedding to a bottle of free champagne and breakfast in bed with a late check out. The service was excellent and the rooms were very clean and comfortable.
However, the rooms and bathrooms do need to be updated. The hotel is not at the same level as other luxury hotels in other parts of world, but is among the best of what is available in Montevideo. Also, the hotel is rather far from downtown, about a 20 to 30 minute drive. There are several good restaurants in the area, and some shopping, but unless you have a car or are willing to take lots of taxis, the area within walking distance is rather limited. Carrasco, the neighborhood, is one of the safest in Montevideo.
Personally, I am glad we spent our wedding night here, but I would not suggest this hotel for the average tourist. Pocitos, another area of the city, in my opinion, is a better area for tourists. It is safe, easier to walk around with more shopping and restaurant options, right on the beach, and easier to get to downtown (shorter taxi rides and more direct buses).
