Make yourself at home at our hotels in São Paulo, Brazil’s cultural capital. In no time you’ll be climbing skyscrapers, indulging in long, leisurely Brazilian meals and dancing till dawn like a resident Paulista.
Guests at our São Paulo hotels can start exploring the Centro Velho, the old city center, from the Praça da Sé, a palm-fringed square fronting the Metropolitan Cathedral. Pedestrian-friendly streets lead from here to the Banespa Tower, with its free observation deck on the 35th floor. The views take in the old city patchwork of church spires and modern apartment buildings and the march of skyscrapers along Avenida Paulista. Make a pit stop in the nearby Municipal Market to grab a fresh-sliced mortadella sandwich, the city’s classic to-go lunch. Take the metro to the São Paulo Art Museum to discover bold and colorful artworks by Brazil’s master painters.
Our São Paulo hotels are near São Paulo’s best dining, in a city famous for having the greatest mix of international cuisines in Brazil. Paulistas go for sushi in the historic Bairro da Liberdade Japanese neighborhood or all-you-can-eat roast steak in any of the city’s churrascarias (Brazilian steak houses). Catch a cab from our hotels in São Paulo for late-night dancing in the Vila Olimpia and Vila Madalena neighborhoods—where samba-fueled dance parties don’t heat up until after midnight.
Book our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in São Paulo to discover the city’s cost-free pleasures, from free entry to the Museum of Modern Art on Mondays to a picnic lunch in Ibirapuera Park—an urban playground of open fields, shady tropical trees, and jogging paths. Practice your soccer skills with the locals, enjoy a free park concert or simply enjoy the city’s best people-watching.
