Nice hotel but not good for business meetings

Hotel staff was good at check in. Everything is nice. Hotel is a little dated. Only problem I had is I had a business meeting and they would not let the people I had for the meeting with into the hotel. I guess a Brazilian thing. So can’t stay here again because of this issue.

It was perfect stay but they didn’t have iron in the room or microwave . That gave us problem as we had to wear clothes with out ironing . There was laundry facility but they take one day to deliver iron clothes . That’s a big minus point
