Check in: La Suite Rio
When it comes to Brasil, my husband and I agree on absolutely everything, minus 1 thing: Rio de Janeiro. I love, love, love the city and he wants to avoid it at all costs. Since he was born and raised in Buenos Aires, one of the largest cities in the world, when he travels the last thing he wants is to visit another large city. In his words, “Rio de Janeiro is Buenos Aires with beaches.” Since I wanted to spend at least a day in 1 of my favorite cities, I had to come up with a compromise. And the perfect compromise was found with our hotel. It is the ultimate in luxury tucked away in the outskirts of the city; the best of both worlds! Plus, it was like they already knew me, since we were given the room with the pink Marilyn Monroe picture and matching pink orchids.
In case you are wondering, my husband did not complain that we were in Rio de Janeiro once!
