Very Nice Experience

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoxFan Great Hotel, Great Location, Great Views, Best Plat C/S
I give this hotel a big Wow.
#1 reason is Vanda, the SPG Customer Relations Manager, who went out of her way tp make our two stays at this hotel last week so special in ways and to a degree I have NEVER experienced (which is saying a lot for a 10+ year Platinum member). So, big WOW back to Vanda and the team.
#2 applause goes to the physical hotel, at least the Club Floor rooms, excluding the club lounge itself, which I will address later. The renovations are very distinctive and the rooms are pretty cool, once you learn how everything works -- and yes, you can electronically lower the shade to block the direct view into the bathroom. There is, however, a big difference between the two views, with the Club Lounge (westerly?) view over the park and historic parts of the city vs the other view over not much of anything special, although far and wide.
#3 is the location...just close enough to be very central...sure, it might be fun to be a mile closer to the Bario Alto or the water...but this hotel is overlooking the main park and just across from the Ritz/Four Seasons, with sweeping views of the Golden Gate-like bridge (actual copy) and Lisbon's iconic Statue of the Redeemer, and taxis are plentiful and inexpensive (about 5 euros to go most places).
#4 is the pool spa area which is nice and I like the fact that they charge for entry so it stays relatively quiet.
On the negative side is the Club Lounge, which is one of the poorer international SPG lounges, IMO, and it doesn't have to be. To begin with it is too small if the hotel/club is at capacity -- OK, not much they can do about that without taking out another room. But basically, the food and drink selection is very poor: just cheap red wine, white wine, and beer for alcohol...not even inexpensive Portuguese sparkling wine, and certainly no hard alcohol. Not even any port --- which they used to serve in this lounge years ago, and which is a symbol of Portugal. Not good. Then the food options, whether for breakfast or in the evening are limited and not particularly good. Again, they used to make omelettes and things in the lounge for breakfast -- no more, now you have to go down to the main restaurant if you want a real breakfast. Lastly, they won't let you take food or drink from the lounge to your room -- not even soda for overnight. You should be able to take some wine or a soda to your room...that's chincy/cheap and leaves a bad taste.
As an aside, the proximity of the airport is amazing...10 mins or less...we took a private car which we purchased at the information desk in the arrivals concourse for EUR 25 to go the hotel in order to skip the exceptionally long queue for the public taxis, but the taxi on way back my taxi was was EUR 8.25, including a 1.60 charge for the luggage (by comparison, the hotel car is EUR 45).
Then, when you put all this in context with the rate/cost/value -- it's a wow package.

Very nice hotel, but after visiting the Sheraton in Porto, this hotel is just not as good. Very pleasant stay in a beautiful city. I would stay there again.

PAULO HENRIQUE AT THE RECEPTION DESK SAVED MY STAY FROM BEING A 3 STAR AT BEST. HE GOT ME A REFRIGERATOR THAT I COULD USE, EXPLAINED HOW TO USE THE HVAC SYSTEM TO KEEP THE ROOM AT A CONSTANT TEMPERATURE, AND EVEN GOT ME A SPEAKERPHONE.
WATCH OUT FOR OVERPRICED PHONE CALLS, HOWEVER!

Rated 5 out of 5 by R234 Excellent staff
I travel quite frequently and found the service very hospitable. I would particularly like to commend the staff on the excellent service. Of special mention - Maria Ana Cabral whose ever smiling and pleasant disposition started off the day perfectly - at breakfast at the Lobby Bistro. Also, Sr. Simoes and Sr. Armando, the ever-helpful concierges, helped plan our itinerary most productively. The staff at the Panorama Restaurant too were very pleasant. The location is so convenient and just a short taxi ride to Rossio. I look forward to staying at your hotel on my next trip to Portugal.

The hotel advertises as a 5 star hotel.
However, reception at check in was poor, there were no bathrobes etc in the rooms and guest service was not very responsive.
Location however is good, as is the food and the bar at the top floor with magnificent view over the city

Rated 5 out of 5 by fhspg2011 ;ake my stay very comfortable
I was in a one week holiday in Lisbon, Alfubeira and Seville staying in this hotel and in two luxury collection hotels in the other places. My prior ranked this hotel 3rd. But it ended up being the best hotel. It started at the reception when a problem in my checking (my mistake) was rapidly corrected and followed by a very nice stay in genarl and in details as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luv2fly Great stay in Lisboa
Stayed as a couple on a pleasure stay for 8 nights.
Check in was quick and I was recognized as a Starwood member and treated accordingly.
We never experienced any problems with staff or the property.
Easy to reach any of Lisbon's attractions from this location.
All in all our experience was very positive and would stay here again.

What a great staff!
We needed a heat pack microwaved and Grassa was this wonderful smiling lady from room service who heated it for us multiple times. She was excellent! And, we thank her!
Excellent young woman in the restaurant too named Sara I think.
Great spa too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stany Just about good enough
Considering 1 night free and 3 others discounted due to SPG points, I can't complain at price. However having to pay €12 just to use the pool is just plain cheeky.

As a frequent traveler i stay at various hotels and this is one of my favorites.
The staff always make you feel like you are part of the family and nothing is impossible to accomplish.
You are a few minutes walk to the best that Lisbon has to offer.

I had arranged a special occasion for my wife's significant birthday in the Panorama Bar and Restaurant. The staff involved could not have been more attentive and helpful. in addition, the hotel was most helpful with booking in our friends who came to Portugal for the event.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angelacaledon Great stay!
Another wonderful stay at a Starwood hotel! At check in we were upgraded to a beautiful city view room. We celebrated my 60 th birthday at the hotel restaurant and our meal and service exceeded our expectations. After a day on on a wine tour, we arrived back to our hotel and found a tray of delicious strawberries ! An unexpected treat! Everything was perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Phil144 Loved our stay.
The room was fabulous, on the 25th floor we could see almost all of Lisbon. The Club Lounge was very nice for entertaining guests. We think all Starwood hotels should have this.
The food in the restaurant was very very good. We ate there several times. We even took guests there.
This was our second stay at the Sheraton in Lisbon and we will go back again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Slav Club launch
Very nice hotel with great staff. However, as a SPG Gold member I was planning to use the Club Launch and did that just for one day.
The size and quality/volume of service offered is equivalent to 3* hotel not 5*.
There is very limited breakfast but acceptable. However the Happy Hours do not offer quality/volume of the food. Traveling around the world I've seen much better service. If you are Platinum member the access is free. Between breakfast and Happy a Hours there is practically no snacks available. If you are Gold and have to pay 30 euro per day spend it outside hotel. It would be a better investment.

Coming back after a few years it is still the great hotel at a very good location in the middle between offices, downtown and shopping areas. I love the Spa and the restaurant with great view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by corr77 Surpassed expectations !!
This hotel was exceptional in every aspect of our 7 day stay from the very moment we pulled in. The welcome at the front door and front desk was followed by exceptional service and friendly staff. Wow what a team. Restaurant and food at top of this hotel are absolutely the very finest in Lisbon not to mention the view and ambience .Well beyond my expectations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hague Nice hotel but staff service needs to be improved
The hotel is located in a nice area. The welcome and car valet parking were well organised. The hotel room looks nice but unfortunately some facilities need maintaining. The bath tub was broken and it could not be filled with water. The plug was broken and could not closed the drainage of water. The sound installation did not work too in the bathroom. Last but not least the bed was too hard.
A bite disappointing was the swimming pool and spa facilities. Beside the overpriced charges of 12,50 euros per person to visit the swimming pool, the lady behind the counter was not really friendly. We paid 25 euros for two persons and she even did not have a locker available. Although there were many lockers (more than 30 lockers) in the changing room but according to this lady every locker was occupied. On the other hand there were only less than 10 people around the swimming pool and spa. She could not offer anything to store my personal gadget (Iphone, Ipad, etc.) and she gave me the impression she did not care. Further on the spa vichy facility was closed too and the pool was really small.
My last remark is about the charges of wifi internet. I expect from a 5 star hotel that the wifi internet is included in the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 02PR60 Great hotel . . . even greater staff at all levels !
Where do I start? When the Doorman (Jorge) and the Bellmen (Alberto and Rui)) remembers us from a year ago, the Club Level staff (Anna Maria) looks after us like we were really VIP's and the Lobby Restaurant staff (Nuno and Joao) "welcomes us back." The Customer Service Supervisor (Vanda) is superior to any we've seen on five continents. I suppose the standards set by the GM are so high that most people would be pleased and amazed. THANKS FOR ANOTHER GREAT VISIT. We can't wait to return next year.

Good central location and very close to the Metro.
Very comfortable room with excellent views over the city.
The food and service in the Panoramic restaurant were excellent.
Staff were very friendly.
No enhanced room on check in which, as SPG Gold, was a little disappointing.
