Right in the middle of Copacabana, the JW Marriott offers superb panoramic views, especially from the rooftop swimming pool. Right across the street the hotel offers a complimentary beach service, with free chairs and towels. The friendly staff is very accommodating and always available with tips and to help arrange trips during your stay in Rio. The central location of the hotel makes it the perfect starting place for sightseeing, plus, it’s also only three blocks from a subway station. The rooms are on the small side, but very comfortable with little extras such as a coffeemaker, iron and ironing board, dual voltage adaptors, and complimentary mineral water. To ensure a view over Copacabana Beach, upgrade to a deluxe ocean view room; all other rooms look out over the hotel's atrium lobby. The hotel’s Sushi Bar is one of the best Japanese restaurants in Rio.
