I like it this hotel in rio de janeiro brazil, very good

I'm a bar fly on vacations. I can say that the bar and the staff is top notch! Helpful, friendly and can make a mean drink! Cheers!

We had a great stay at the Marriott Copacabana. Close to everything. Clean and quiet rooms. Our view to Copacabana beach was amazing. People at the lobby were helpful and super nice. The concierge service was amazing in addition to being helpful and nice. I will definitely return to this hotel.

Elegant hotels in Rio are notorious for staff that think they are staying at a 5-star hotel, not working at a 5-star hotel. After two dozen trips and disappointing stays at expensive but pretentious hotels, I finally found the perfect hotel. The Marriott staff is genuinely friendly and efficient without fail. No other hotel in Rio that I stayed in comes even close to that level of service. The hotel is elegant and the rooms are the right size with everything you need. My room was ocean front (less than 50% of the rooms are), and the extra cost is very much worthwhile for a breathtaking view of Copacabana beach (if only the architect made the windows bigger, oh well). Breakfast hours were great (6:30-11:00) allowing flexibility. The quality of the food was impeccable. The selection was OK but a bit limited, and some items rotated from day to day. The swimming pool on the top floor is quite warm. It's small but barely OK for laps. The entire floor feels more like a sun deck since the pool is not at the center. Although the hotel is expensive, it is competitive for Rio's prices. Once you are there, add-on's are reasonably priced. Hotel cars for example, which in some hotels are absurdly expensive, are reasonable here. The wireless internet was a bit slow and unreliable, but the wired connection was faster and more reliable. It was included in my package, but wasn't too expensive if I had to pay for it separately. The lobby are is pleasant and has quiet corners that are good if you want to meet with colleagues. The staff was very helpful with my business center needs as well. The only remark I have for the hotel (other than making the room windows bigger which is not possible now) is that the bathtub was more slippery than the norm. In conclusion, the service in this hotel is among the best I have seen any where in the world, and by far the best I have seen in Rio and is reason enough for me to come back when my travels bring me back to Rio.

The staff was warm, friendly and helpful for a new Portuguese learner too. Thought about our needs 100% and always had a smile. Couldn't ask for more!

it is next to the beach. very easy.

The hotel was very good. [...]

This is a super location for any tourist to Rio de Janeiro. For one, you are right on Copacabana Beach, so you can begin to take on the surf and sand scene immediately. And for trips downtown or to other locales, there is a Metro stop (Siquiera Campos)just a few blocks inland from the hotel. In addition, you will be in a lively part of town, with lots of restaurants, shops and street-life going from early morning to late at night.The hotel staff was super. Just about everyone speaks English in case your Portuguese is rusty, and are most helpful in every way. Two examples, [...], the head door-keeper, helped me arrange a personal trip to Corcovado at an odd time; the trip went perfectly and was reasonably priced. And when I told the bartender that this was my first trip to Rio in decades, he greated me warmly and insisted that I have a "capringa" - the national cocktail - on the house.My room was super clean and comfy; the TV has plenty of stations. In the morning the hotel serves a buffet breakfast that is exceptional in its variety and tastiness of both Brazilian and foreign fare. You won't go away hungry! And for those who want to dine in the hotel, it has several excellent resturants; I especially recommend the informal one in the mezzanine. It also has a nice, sit-down bar with quite a selection of beverages from coffee to cocktails, and, in the lobby, a small coffee shop where you can get a quick pastry and cafezinho.
