This grand Avenida da Liberdade landmark celebrated its 80th birthday last year. During World War II it was notorious as a haunt for spies from both sides who flocked to neutral Lisbon. In the decades since, it's attracted visiting politicians, artists, and movie stars. The lobby oozes old-world elegance with marble columns and velvet armchairs in rich, deep tones. It's a preferred meeting spot for Lisbon's business elite before they head to lunch in the French brasserie on site or the penthouse Terraço restaurant to enjoy five-star food served amidst spectacular views. Rooms are spacious and airy, overlooking the tree-lined avenue or the lush garden below. They are decorated in modern classic style with easy-on-the-eyes shades predominating. Superior rooms come equipped with Nespresso machines and iHome sound systems. All rooms were modernized in early 2014. The rooftop lounge bar attracts a crowd on summer nights and there's a small circular swimming pool surrounded by exotic foliage in the garden. Next door, there's a sister hotel, the four-star Tivoli Jardim. It has a more contemporary feel and has two restaurants run by local celebrity chef Oliver da Costa. One specializes in Japanese food and contains an unnervingly large tropical fish tank hosting a small shark.
