My friend Mary and I stayed at the Windsor Martinique Hotel (Rua Sá Ferreira 30, Copacabana CEP 22071-100, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; phone 55 21 2195 5200, fax 2195 5222), about a half-block off the Copacabana beach, March 22-24, 2010.

The staff spoke English and was very friendly and efficient. Even though the check-in time was 1 p.m., they gave us our room immediately when we arrived hours early.

Our room was modern, well equipped and comfortable. Three nights cost us $486, buffet breakfasts included. Free Internet in the room.

The front desk was helpful in providing suggestions and tour information. There were cafés along the beach with all types of food and drink.

I booked through Expedia.com after doing much research, reading recommendations of past users of Rio hotels. This is a practice I recommend for all travelers.
