Check in was prompt. Room was clean and had the A/C already set. Bathroom was spotless. This particular room had no plugs for US style electronics cords so ask for an adaptor or bring one of your own. Taking an Uber to the downtown are town was very, very inexpensive. Less

Great views from the hotel. Service and attitude of some staff members is not so great however.You tend to get looked up and down as if you don’t belong (must be a Brazilian thing). We’d booked a club room with attendant benefits. For a clubroom, bathroom is small and pokey,

The Sheraton at Leblon has direct access from the hotel onto a very nice beach. None of the other hotels along the Copacabana or Ipanema or Leblon beaches have access direct to the beach and you have to cross a four or six lane road to get to the beach. The Sheraton has a great

The Sheraton Grand Hotel is a traditional facility in Rio de Janeiro located on the Leblon beach. The hotel is huge and relatively impersonal. On a positive note, as an SPG Platinum member, I had access to the Club Lounge and breakfast was served at L’Etoile on the 26th floor

Response from YaraSuzart, Guest Relations Manager at Sheraton Grand Rio Hotel & Resort
Responded 3 weeks ago
Dear pablov906, In first place I would like to thank you for your honest review regarding what happened during check in time in our hotel. The experience you described is not the standard level of service that our associates strive to provide. We get really disappointed when something like this happens to our guests. We understand that the service that you have received during your stay did not meet your expectations, and for this, I sincerely apologize. Your point of view was valuable for us to make the necessary reorientation for the team. It would be a pleasure to have the opportunity to hear more about what happened in an effort to avoid this problem that occurs in the future. I would only like to emphasize that we do not have private beaches in Brazil, it is against the law. And we advise all the guests about that. I stay available to receive your comments as your best availability, please feel free to contact me at yara.suzart@sheraton.com Please, do not hesitate to contact me through my e-mail at any time. I hope I can in day, restore your trust in our services. My best regards, Yara Suzart Guest Relations

I few years ago there were a lot of people selling tickets outside the sambadromo when I went there. For a very cheap price. But off course that is no guarantee. It all depends which day you wanna go. Friday and saturday are usually easier to get tickets. Sunday is the biggest parade with the most famous samba schools.

We did not see any nightly entertainment, but we went out. I have heard that there is entertainment at the pool, but I am not sure if it is there every night. Your best bet is going to be to check with the concierge before booking.

The breakfast was included for us because we stayed on the Club Level upper floors and paid for the upgrade. They have two wonderful buffet style restaurants with cook to order omelets and eggs. One is on the ground floor and the other on the top floor. What a view from there. They also include and evening reception of snack foods and drinks nightly. The Club Level rooms, breakfast, and reception are worth the extra $20.00 U.S. nightly.

Got my visa in less than 1 hour at the NYC consulate. Read on line for the requirements, if you have everything it's quick. Visa is good for 3 months.

"There is shuttle service to the main beaches, bookings are essential"
"Noise from the beach is very loud and continual (although probably expected due to the location)."
"Ocean view room"
"Ask for high floor with pool view"
"All rooms you can hear the waves: The saying was "do you also have the sea in your room!" Old windows which do not close tightly."
US$150 - US$379 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
