This Portuguese-owned beachfront hotel has a prime spot on the Copacabana strip and a deep commitment to customer service, making it a solid option for both business travelers and tourists. A 2012 renovation brought in Cais da Ribeira, its excellent restaurant focused on local specialties, and a trendy rooftop cocktail bar (the views are postcard-worthy), and pool. The 247 rooms are comfortable but small and non-descript, featuring billowy white curtains and hardwood floors. Try for a beach view with a veranda.
