The Marina Palace is in Leblon ( better located) and is a slightly higher category.

Thanks for the reply- would you say Leblon is better for nightlife and beach?

Posto 9 in Ipanema is the "in" spot at the beach whereas Leblon is more quieter/family oriented...I've stayed at Marina Palace twice and love it and just walk to the beach in Ipanema (15 minutes and it's good exercise)...great restaurants in both, Ipanema and Leblon. Probably little better nightlife in Ipanema but it depends what you're looking for...if you do stay at the Marina Palace, spend the extra $20/night and get one of the Executive floor rooms--worth it.
