Rated 4 out of 5 by Arka The defination of comfort
First of all, Thank you so much for all your kind effort to make my stay a very pleasant one. I have experienced the wonderful stay at Sheraton, Rio for 20 days. I expected that I could have continue my stay there for more couple of weeks but due to the lack of rooms available during the carnival time I have to move on from there but my journey with SPG Hotels started in a happy way which will definitely take this relationship very very far I am sure of that. Thanks Again !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rynomite Nice pools and beach
Stayed three nights at the Sheraton Rio as a tourist on a larger South American trip. Overall the hotel was good. I was especially pleased with our room interior - modern decor, plenty of room, functional additions.
The hotel amenities were also solid. Several good-sized pools and direct access to a public but non-crowded beach. ATM machine that worked well with US debit cards. Car service available. Top floor formal restaurant also offered great views of Ipanema and good cuisine; the pool-side restaurant was much less impressive.
Although it's priced at "5 stars," I think the hotel falls a little short of this rating. Our "ocean view" room mostly faced a favela (mountain slum) with a partial view of Ipanema. They should have called the room a "partial Ipanema view" to avoid the let-down. Our keys were all turned off mid-stay (not a magnetic issue - I suspect the front desk did not input the correct check-out day). This would not have been a big deal but it took over 30 minutes in line at the front desk to fix it. The hotel appears to have mixed clientele, with a lot of families with kids, business travelers, guy groups, and flight crews; this made for a little too much commotion at the pools and late at night. I would not recommend it for couples. But if you've got kids or are focused on having a pool (especially if you've got free nights or a discount rate), this is a solid base accessible to the tourist spots in southern Rio.

My wife and I spend a week at the Sheraton Rio and had a great time. The hotel is just off the main strip but has its own beach. Position means it looses the sun on the pool around 16.00 but still have a great atmosphere. Italian restaurant on the ground floor is fantastic, lots of little treats from the staff and chef and a great food selection. Great gym with lots of classes to choose from. Fantastic stay.

This is a really nice hotel, in a good location, it exceeded our expectations, the bed was probably one of the best hotel beds We have ever slept in ( and I stay in a lot of hotels)
Great staff too, nothing was too much to trouble.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chri18 Excellent Location
As I needed to attend to an event at Joa the location of Sheraton Hotel was the best possible
Unfortunately as it was a very short trip I did not have enough time to really experience the hotel facilities

Exactly 1 year ago our family of 4 spent an amazing week in Rio. The service was exceptional, and felt at home. We loved the beach right below us (Even if the water was cold). also enjoyed the warm pool! Can't wait to go back to see how the renovations came out.
