The Brazilian-owned Blue Tree chain is known for quality and service, with several excellent hotels scattered throughout São Paulo. But for a superior location, visitors should stay at the Blue Tree Premium Paulista. This modern high-rise sits only a block from Avenida Paulista and the MASP Museum, and is just a five-minute walk from upscale Jardins, with plenty of shopping, dining, and nightlife options. Rooms here are geared towards business travelers, so they have modern, bright interiors with soothing neutral colors, comfortable, firm beds with quality linen, adequate work space, and Wi-Fi (for an extra fee). Some rooms look out over the MASP and Avenida Paulista. There's also a small indoor pool and fitness center. For the best rates, plan to stay on a weekend or during holidays.
