A great location on the Praça República, plus a great pool and all the services that come with the Hilton brand. The standard rooms themselves -- located on floors two through six -- are pleasant if not outstanding, featuring a firm queen-size bed, work table, lounge chairs, a small balcony, and a bathroom with standard size tub/shower combo, a good-size counter sink, and extras like a hair dryer and makeup mirror. Superior rooms are identical, except the superior rooms are located on floors 7 through 11. The deluxe rooms, on floors 12 to 14, have not only recently been renovated, but they include access to the 14th-floor executive business lounge. Junior suites aren't worth the cost premium, but the corner suites are. These -- on floors 2 through 15 -- feature a furnished separate sitting room and sizable balcony with an excellent view of the Theatro da Paz.
