The Copacabana Palace is legendary for its sumptuous style, fine cuisine and impeccable service
Always the last word in elegance, this imposing Mediterranean-style building has recently been refurbished from top to toe, reaffirming its reputation as South America's most sought-after hotel. The Copacabana Palace is at the very heart of Rio's exhilarating social life, a rendezvous for the international set and the cream of Rio society
Rio's most traditional and luxurious hotel was opened in 1923. The impressive, stucco-fashioned landmark building was designed by the French architect Joseph Gire, who was inspired by two hotels: the Negresco in Nice and the Carlton in Cannes. Since its opening, it has had only two owners - the Guinle family of Rio de Janeiro and from 1989, Orient-Express Hotels
The Copacabana Palace has 226 bedrooms and suites, 148 in the main building and 78 in the Tower Wing
The suites either face the sea or Copacabana Avenue
The 5th floor Executive rooms and suites all benefit from a range of exclusive facilities and an Executive lounge with all-day snacks and drinks
Guest rooms are air conditioned and have international TV, VCR and direct dial telephones
The 6th floor Penthouse suites are decorated with works of art, exotic carpets and French fabrics - just some of the details which make the 6th floor the perfect place for those who understand about stylish living and are 'flying down to Rio'
