    This is great news, I am planning a trip to Sao Paulo end of August 2010. I have friends there but plan to stay a few nights in Sao paulo, Is there anything i should consider and any     information about the Renaissance Sao Paulo Hotel would be most helpful.

    Interesting, if not amusing avatar.  The earful character is vaguely familiar, what's the origin?

     

    Hopefully an office in Brazil will have a positive impact.  So far, the choices are few.  Insiders who have been to Sao Paulo have mixed reactions.  Take a look at these posts:

    Just found this post while exploring Insider.  It's been almost three years and we only have 2 options in Central Sao Paulo (Renaissance and Marriott Executive Apartments), both of which are a good 20 minute taxi ride from the new Berrini commercial area.  Any update to this "business development" plans for Brazil?

    This is great news. While I only go to Sao Paulo two or three times a year, Marriott certainly needs more availability there. I don't think it makes sense to complain about any hotel being too far from a specific area in Sao Paulo because the city's business districts are so spread out and distant from each other. When I'm there, I have to go to several different locations, so I'm sunk no matter what. To me, it just makes more sense to stay in a safe area and fight the traffic during the day.
