When you think of a hotel on the Brazilian coast, you picture sweeping ocean views steps from a sandy beach. And that's exactly what you get with Othon Palace Fortaleza. Located on the city's main beachfront promenade, the Othon Palace is an ideal base for exploring this vibrant coastal city. Avenida Beira Mar, one of the city's most desired addresses, is filled with beachside bars and Fortaleza's largest seafood market. Overlooking Mucuripe Bay, the hotel is also just steps from Meireles Beach, one of the best urban beaches in the country. The popular Futuro Beach, a 10-minute cab ride away, is also worth a visit for its idyllic leaf-roofed cabanas and less developed surroundings. Fortaleza's nightlife is centered in the Praia de Iracema neighborhood, with music venues, comedy clubs, and dance halls offering entertainment throughout the week.
At Othon's onsite restaurant indulge in gourmet Italian fare while trying out some local Brazilian favorites. The lounge area serves complimentary breakfast daily, then turns into a lively spot for an afternoon or pre-dinner drink. And if you feel like staying in, you can always order 24-hour room service. The Othon has 3 meeting rooms for business events or social gatherings, and a business center. Wired and wireless internet are available free of charge, and limited covered parking is available. A health club is also available.
Leaving the beach for the day isn't all that bad if you're returning to a room with spectacular ocean views, possibly even a balcony for prime sunset gazing. These air-conditioned rooms also feature cable and pay movies on the TV and WiFi. Rollaway/extra beds for a fee and complimentary cribs (infant beds) are also available in select rooms. Families or groups may also request connecting/adjoining rooms at Othon Palace Fortaleza.
