Marriott International’s first luxury hotel in Brazil’s largest city, JW Marriott Hotel São Paulo, is now welcoming guests.
The 258-key property was conceived after extensive research on Brazilian architecture, landscaping, craftsmanship and natural resources, to prioritize national materials in its construction. U.S.-based architecture firm HKS, Inc. developed and brought to life the bespoke design elements found throughout the hotel’s public spaces, guestrooms and suites. Landscape architect Sérgio Santana designed the property’s grounds, which feature native trees from the Atlantic Forest and plants from the natural biome to attract birds and native animals.
Highlights of the JW Marriott Hotel São Paulo include:
- Stylishly-appointed guestrooms and suites featuring contemporary architecture and custom-made furnishings alongside best-in-class entertainment systems;
- an on-site Italian restaurant – Neto – offering a menu that mixes Italian techniques with local, fresh ingredients in a large, two-storey hall featuring Brazilian wood and marble detail;
- a lobby bar – Bar Caju – serving classic cocktails made with traditional Brazilian ingredients;
- a hotel spa with 10 tranquil treatment rooms ranging in size from 100 square feet to a 200-square-foot couple’s room;
- a modern, fully-equipped fitness center with a private yoga room, indoor-outdoor pool and steam room;
- a more than 10,000-square-foot fully-equipped convention center with six private rooms with large windows offering views of the lush nature preserve nearby;
- and a curated selection of installations and artwork throughout the hotel’s public spaces, guestrooms and suites from the country’s artists, including Brazilian artist Burle Marx and São Paulo painter and designer Antonio Malta.
