I stayed at the Mercure Stella Vega in December 2011 for business. I thought it was a very good value product.
The highlights are as follows:
-Rooms were reasonably priced for the space, amenities (breakfast, free internet).
-Good amount of space in the rooms, in addition to the bedroom, there was a sitting area space with a desk and chair. This was great for working after hours and having separate space to work and relax.
-All of the front desk staff were extremely courteous, helpful and trilingual. One of the staff members went out one block to get me a taxi in the morning.
-Approximately close to Faria Lima (15-20 taxi ride).
-I was on the 13th floor, and had a great view in two directions.
-The breakfast room/restaurant was adequate, I had breakfast from a large buffet spread each morning and the dinner/lunch options were fine.
While I am not accustomed to typical SP prices (and am comparing this to NY and London hotel prices), I thought this was a great value and I would stay here again.
The only drawback may be that I'm not sure how much retail is walkable form the hotel.More
