Fontecruz Lisboa Autograph Collection

Reviewed October 16, 2013

Although the interior is rather dark, it has a modern feel to it. The room was large enough. I loved the bathroom. Modern, but also dark. There was no bath, but since I just stayed there for one night this was not a problem. The walk-in rain shower was very pleasant. The view on the street was also very nice.
Breakfast was tasty. A large buffet was available with a lot of choice.
Overall I had a very nice stay at this hotel.

This hotel is in an excellent location which is fabulous. The decor however is very avant garde. We stayed on the 5th floor where the walls are all painted black. Our room was also very dark, which takes a bit getting use to. Aside from the decorating, little things such as tissues were missing from our room. This may seem trite, but not when one of you has a cold! We also noticed a foul odor in the hallway which never went away. It was always there, morning through late at night.
The hotel restaurant was fair. We ate 2-3 meals there and finally decided to walk across the street to the Sofitel Hotel when the food was 10x better and had a more interesting bar. Next time in Lisbon, we'll stay at the Sofitel.

Luv it, luv it - perfect location, near luxury shops & very good restaurants. The Fontecruz Lisboa is a beautiful design hotel with good rooms & amazing staff. This visit was all business, but can't wait to visit again and enjoy the sights of Lisbon!

All in all, the hotel is "good" to "very good," in all categories.
Which means it wasn't "excellent" in any.

Room - on a smaller side, even with an upgrade. I understand standard rooms are even smaller.
Not tiny, especially by European standards, but deluxe rooms in 5-stars are typically bigger and better appointed.

Breakfast - OK, not too much variety. Again, no one went hungry...but I'd expect more.

Front desk staff very helpful, but very overworked.

But the value was good. I think we paid around $150/nt - plus the Marriott Gold upgrades, so we definitely got our money's worth.

This trip was the first time for using Marriott Autograph Collection (here and Santiago de Compostella, Spain) so weren't quite sure what to expect. We arrived a bit early and told room was not ready, but that we had been assigned "an interesting room". It was indeed - the room was pretty much all white with a separate sitting area from the bedroom, so it was quite spacious. All seemed quite new - bathroom well appointed with fancy toiletries. The hotel is very contemporary and trendy, located right on Liberdade within walking distance of many sights, Alfama, Baixa, riverfront, etc. Our room was located in the back building, away from Liberdade - there is a lovely cocktail/dining courtyard between the main front building and the back one - very pleasant for a relaxing drink.

All in all, it's a hard hotel to adequately describe as it is an unusual design, but we did enjoy the stay. A full buffet breakfast was provided. Front desk staff was quite helpful in directions and advice. Plus they made arrangements for cab back to airport at 15 euros and included that on our room bill.

We only stayed for one night but were so impressed by the front desk service, especially Claudia. You didn't have to ask for anything, it was offered - maps, directions, printing of boarding passes. Rooms were spacious and updated. And it is in a great location for walking

The design was second to none, the staff friendly, food great - but most of all, I loved the design of the hotel and the rooms. So creative! I'd definitely stay here again. Be sure to have a meal (besides breakfast) in the hotel restaurant - the food is top class. The only thing that was a bit annoying was that there was no hot water cooker in the room. So, you had to go down to the restaurant every time you wanted a cup of tea or coffee.
