Ex-Sheraton Mofarrej Hotel reopens as Tivoli São Paulo Mofarrej

At long last, the tired old hotel that became famous in its incarnation as Sheraton Mofarrej was closed down and renovated, and just reopened completely transformed. The new name is Tivoli São Paulo-Mofarrej and it's now owned by the Portuguese group Espírito Santo. It's currently only in soft opening, so the rates are lower than they will be after the official inauguration on March 26.
After six months of renovations helmed by architect Patricia Anastassiadis, the Mofarrej is hardly recognizeable - in a good way. Lines are clean, colours are few - think lots of black and white, straight lines, long geometric counters in the rooms doubling as work desks.

I wasn't able to book a room online, so I called them directly. That's how I found out that the less expensive rooms cost 460 reais per night on the weekend (including breakfast) or 1008 during the week. HUGE diference in price! That tells me that the hotel is fully geared to businessmen.
Although the hotel seems elegant, the décor is a bit déjà vu...

I'm so over this standard boutiquey look...
They'll soon open the rooftop restaurant, which is guaranteed to have one of the best views in town, and the bar-lounge off the lobby, which faces the nifty orange pool.

The huge spa carries the Banyan Tree stamp of approval.
