We spent four nights here and the locaton is great, the staff was very helpful and proud to help. The rooms are the smallest we have ever experienced from Marriott but given the density and cost or RE, you'll see why. NO tourist shopping in the area and restaurant choice are slim at best. For a beverage, go to the beach area and get soda/beer, etc for 75% less than what they charge.
Sad to say, Rio is long past its prime as a tourist destination. Our trip goal was to get to the Iguazu Falls area otherwise we cannot recommend RIO. You can "do" the area in two days.
For decent tourist stuff, hit the Sunday market in Ipanema. We bought some well carved stone birds for about 25% of what the shops and airport gets for them.
The people of RIO were all very polite and willing to help.
Go the the street to book a cab...for some reason, Marriott gets a premium if one pulls up to the door...mystery to me.
