Any recomendation for a stay in Sao Paulo, Brazil

I have tried the Renaissance Sao Paulo hotel several times and most of the times I had a very bad experience in seven years. I stopped  staying there for three years and came back a few weeks ago and had again a very stressful experience. Could you please recommend me a "Marriott quality" hotel in Sao Paulo?

Appreciate your advice very much,

    I have stayed at the Marriott near the airport a couple of times.  It was nice - just dont stay in room 901.  We had a problem in that room with mosquitos coming in through the vents.

     

    Other than that, in the city I have stayed at the Sheraton WTC.  They have really neat designer rooms that are all different and very nice. 

     

    Hope that helps

    I have stayed at the Grand Hyatt in Sao Paulo many times and have never been disappointed. It is in the"Brooklin" area of town so it is a little out of the way, but cabs are cheap and plentiful.

    The hotel offers good restaurants and the Morumbi Shopping area is about 2 blocks away so you have many options for both dining and shopping.

    I don't think you'd be disappointed there, even though it is not a Marriott.

    Be advised, though, that getting to and from the hotel and GRU airport can be very time-consuming because of very heavy traffic, so plan accordingly.

    I have tried the Renaissance, the Hilton (the one with all the security guards on motorcycles) and the Hyatt (the one near the Hilton)

    I have to say my favorite by far has been the Renaissance.  Good gymnasium and nice breakfast buffet, but not as modern as the other two hotels on my list. 

    I got some kind of food poisoning at the Hilton, and I found the staff at the Hyatt to have a somewhat unaccomodating attitude.

    Also - the Renaissance is in a much more "walkable" neighborhood than the other two if you want to get out of the hotel and explore a little without getting held-up at gunpoint.
