Built to accommodate an influx of visitors arriving for the Rio Olympic Games, the AC Hotel by Marriott Rio de Janeiro Barra da Tijuca is Marriott’s newest property in the Brazilian beach city. The upscale neighborhood is famous for its gardens, high-end shopping malls, mansions and wide boulevards. Barra da Tijuca is home to the Olympic Village (a half-hour drive from the hotel) and hosted many events during the summer games. While not known for its beaches, the area is just seven miles from Leblon Beach and adventurers are only five miles from Tijuca Forest National Park.

This new Marriott looks at home in its luxe surroundings with an exterior and lobby designed out of white marble, carved wood and creamy leather furnishings. The lounge acts as a communal workspace during the daytime and later invites guests to linger over drinks when the sun sets. Rooms feature clean lines, minimalist décor and hardwood flooring. All accommodations include flat-screen televisions, free Wi-Fi, minifridges and views of the city. Guests can choose between one king bed or two twin beds and four-legged visitors are also welcome for a nightly fee.

To look their best on Brazil’s beaches, guests can work out at the hotel’s fitness center and sunbathe at the rooftop pool. AC Kitchen serves three meals a day in its brightly lit dining room featuring blonde wood details, floor-to-ceiling windows and beige leather seating. The adjacent bar is the perfect place to unwind with a cocktail after shopping and sightseeing all day or before a night out in Copacabana to experience the city’s legendary nightlife.
