“Great business hotel, very professional set up.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Stayed for 2 nights. Check in and out super quick. Nice room with everything you could ask for including free bottled water. Nice touch. Bed probably the most comfortable I have slept in. Offered free Wifi which was quick and efficient. Good location for Paulista.
Breakfast was ok with attentive staff. Only downside is they only give you side plates(small) so you keep having to go up to the buffet to get a reasonable sized breakfast.
Would definitely stay here again. A good choice and reasonable rates.

I stayed at the Intercontinental for business for two nights. The lobby, bar and restaurant were lovely. The sleeping room was good forsake being a little warm, and the bathroom could use an upgrade. That said, I would definitely stay here again as it has a very good reputation amongst business travelers from the US and Europe. Ample transportation from hotel car service and a taxi stand right on the corner. And a Starbucks a block away. Great stay!

We stayed for four nights, and the location near Avenue Paulista is excellent. We initially had a room with a balcony that was adequately sized. When the management learned that the Jacuzzi and Internet were not functioning properly, they moved us to a suite. This had a nice bedroom and a spacious living room. The bathrooms have both separate showers and baths, a real plus in contemporary hotels.The Internet then worked wonderfully. The management and front desk personnel, particularly Luana, are fabulous. They are all most accommodating. THE place in Sao Paulo.

Perfectly well located, recently renewed, "ready to help" staff, great breakfast, beautiful, staying there at least 3 times, my next business trip to Sao Paulo will definetily be at intercontinental,never dissapointed with the 5 stars service, and the rooms are like been in paradise, the bed "matelas experience" feels like flying, so smooth and comfortable.
The hotel is so well located, maybe 15 minutes walking maximum from the 3rd best restaurant in the world, "DOM", and from "Oscar freire street", best place in Sao Paulo to go shopping and chill out in a coffe terrasse, it's perfect for business and also traveling with family.
I am happy to come back in October...
Ps: I rarely write reviews but this one is worthy.
Luxury, beautiful, a good choice

InterContinental Sao Paulo is one of the nicest hotels I have come across in my worldwide travel. While hotel exterior looks a bit old and can use a facelit, it is a modern and different world once you step in. Hotel staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. As a gold member, I was put on the Club floor where rooms are just simply wonderful and I had my own balcony! Room is nicely furnished with modern furniture and a super comfy king bed. Bathroom shows a bit age but still carries the luxurious feel.

This hotel is positioned in one of the best parts of town and has a fantastic location. As previous reviews indicated, you can easily walk to parks, stores and many restaurants nearby. Service is top-notch (a big applaud to Regina who is caring, patient and attentive), their "group" handling ability is super efficient. Internet and breakfast are included in price which makes the high price a bit bearable.... BTW, breakfast is EXCELLENT! Overall, I had a fabulous experience at this hotel and will not hesitant a minute to come back again!

Room Tip: Choose a room with balcony

We feel very pleased that you enjoyed our services and the atmosphere created by our team.

Our staff is our most valuable asset and Regina surely plays a big role on that. Your comments were already forwarded to our human resources department for further handling and due recognition.

We feel very proud to know that you will not hesitate to come back to our hotel and it will be a great honor to welcome you soon again.

... but also good for business. Breakfast/dinner meals were great. Very central location, very walkable to shopping and subways. Close to business offices as well. Everything was modern and nice. We were the noisy ones on this trip and didn't get any noise complaints (traveling for a group trip of young professionals). Pretty easy to get a cab to nightlife. Staff was friendly. Clean, no bugs or anything. Pool was fine and had WiFi. Gym was decent.
