Hilton Barra Rio de Janeiro
This brand-new hotel is the first Hilton in Rio, built in the heart of the Olympic Zone, just a short walk from the Olympic Park and Athletes' Village. The 298 hotel rooms come equipped with luxurious bedding, smart LED TVs, and Malin + Goetz products, with some suites boasting balconies with views of the Barra lagoon. No balcony? Those views are in full, picturesque effect from the rooftop swimming pool and terrace. While its sure to be a destination for all sorts of adventurous crowds touching down for the 2016 Olympic Games, it's main draw, post-Games, will be for business travelers who want to be close to the RioCentro Convention Center.
