The Sheraton Grand Hotel is a traditional facility in Rio de Janeiro located on the Leblon beach. The hotel is huge and relatively impersonal. On a positive note, as an SPG Platinum member, I had access to the Club Lounge and breakfast was served at L’Etoile on the 26th floor

We were aboard a Regent Cruise ship that offered us a 3-day post-cruise stay in Rio. We arrived at the hotel around 11:00, hoping to get an early check-in. Since I am Platinum with the SPG/Marriott hotel group I tried to get an earlier check-in as is usually afforded those at

I few years ago there were a lot of people selling tickets outside the sambadromo when I went there. For a very cheap price. But off course that is no guarantee. It all depends which day you wanna go. Friday and saturday are usually easier to get tickets. Sunday is the biggest parade with the most famous samba schools.

Is there any nightly entertainment at the hotel?
We did not see any nightly entertainment, but we went out. I have heard that there is entertainment at the pool, but I am not sure if it is there every night. Your best bet is going to be to check with the concierge before booking.

Is breakfast Buffet included with reservation?
The breakfast was included for us because we stayed on the Club Level upper floors and paid for the upgrade. They have two wonderful buffet style restaurants with cook to order omelets and eggs. One is on the ground floor and the other on the top floor. What a view from there. They also include and evening reception of snack foods and drinks nightly. The Club Level rooms, breakfast, and reception are worth the extra $20.00 U.S. nightly.

"Noise from the beach is very loud and continual (although probably expected due to the location)."
"Ocean view room"
"Ask for high floor with pool view"
"All rooms you can hear the waves: The saying was "do you also have the sea in your room!" Old windows which do not close tightly."
"best view, very good breakfast, nice room"
