Everest Park (or Rio) Hotel in Rio de Janeiro?

I'm headed to Rio for my first time from April 7-11. I have booked the Everest Park Hotel in Ipanema for US$101/night + 5% taxes. I got the hotel to match Orbitz.com directly, since I prefer not to have to use a middleman. It was the cheapest rate I could find.

The location is excellent and I can use the pool and amenities of the more deluxe sister Everest Rio Hotel around the block. It seemed like a good deal to me considering that less deluxe hotels in the area are going for US$80-85/night at least. It seems to be a prime area to stay in. I didn't want to pay Caesar Park prices unfortunately. I perused the travel books and online sites for prices and reviews/recommendations beforehand.

I had to pay for one night initially with my CC. Anyone have any experiences or comments with the Everest Hotels?

Any suggestions about Rio, in general?

Thanks!

Sorry, just saw this post and it looks like you are leaving today.

I've never stayed at either hotel, but just around the corner and I think it's the best location. You got a good rate, I think you'll be fine. Enjoy your trip, it's a fantastic city.
