Rio de Janeiro’s grand dame hotel stands as a landmark of 1920s architecture.
Rio de Janeiro’s grand dame hotel, represented in the film Flying Down to Rio, where Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire danced across the ballroom floor, stands as a landmark of 1920’s architecture. Inspired by Nice’s Negresco, it evokes the glamour of a bygone era. Many of the bedrooms overlook Copacabana beach just steps from the hotel, although the scene at the outdoor swimming pool is as popular today as when Santos Dumont or Carmen Miranda took afternoon tea or sipped cocktails at sunset. The Sunday brunch and traditional Brazilian feijoada at the poolside Pérgula restaurant are unforgettable highlights, and in the world-renowned restaurant Hotel Cipriani, chef Nicola Finamore serves an innovative North Italian menu in a breathtakingly romantic setting.
