Lisbon five-star hotels

Avenida Palace
Lisbon's original luxury hotel is still dishing up Belle Epoque elegance at its wonderfully convenient location in the heart of downtown Lisbon.

Dom Pedro Palace
The ultramodern Dom Pedro Palace is on top of a hill facing the Amoreiras shopping mall, just outside the downtown area. Its has 263 rooms and suites on 21 floors; all rooms have king-size beds and doors that wide enough for wheelchairs. Three floors are set aside for nonsmokers.

The Hotel Altis has 300 rooms, a rooftop restaurant, a swimming pool, fitness facilities, a parking garage, and rooms for disabled travelers. It's located just west of the Avenida da Liberdade, near the Botanical Gardens. See our hotel review.

Lapa Palace
Traditional Portuguese decor is a hallmark of the Lapa Palace, a former stately home in Lisbon's embassy district. The 19th Century palace opened as a hotel in 1992 and is a member of the Orient-Express chain.

Palacio Belmonte
Lisbon's most exclusive boutique hotel was named one of the "coolest 21 hotels in the world" by Condé Nast Traveler's UK edition after it opened in 1999. Scenes from the Wim Wenders film Lisbon Story were filmed at the Belmonte Palace, which has just eight luxury suites and is located in the historic Alfama district, near the São Jorge castle.

Real Palácio
This deluxe boutique hotel occupies a renovated 17th Century palace, just off the Avenida da Liberdade and near the Parque Eduardo VII. It has extremely high guest ratings from Venere, our booking partner--and, unlike many luxury hotels, it offers free broadband Internet access to its guests.

Ritz
The opulent Ritz, built in the 1950s, is now part of the Four Seasons chain. The 10-story building overlooks the Parque Eduardo XII, and 272 of the 282 guest rooms and suites have private terraces.

Sheraton Lisboa Hotel & Spa
Modern comforts, English-speaking staff, and a large outdoor pool have long drawn well-heeled American and Canadian tourists and business travelers to this 318-room skyscraper hotel. The hotel, which was built in 1972, is about half a kilometer from the Marques de Pombal Square.

This hotel is by the Marques de Pombal Square (it's the tiered-roof building right above the column in this photo). It offers 331 modern rooms and suites and is just five minutes from Lisbon's Amoreiras shopping mall, which has some 350 shops and a 10-screen cinema.

Tivoli Lisboa
A spectacular lobby, a heated pool, and tennis courts are among the amenities that draw vacationers and business travelers to this long-established luxury hotel on the Avenida da Liberdade. The Tivoli Lisboa has 329 rooms on eight floors, including 44 nonsmoking rooms and two rooms for disabled guests. The rooftop Terrace Grill offers dramatic city views, especially at night.

Cascais

Farol Design Hotel
With 33 rooms, a sushi bar, a high-style restaurant, and a location above rocks and a yacht harbor in suburban Cascais, this member of the Design Hotels group is a worthy boutique hotel if you have a taste for trendiness and are traveling by car. Rooms have been individually "dressed" by top Portuguese fashion designers.

Resort

Penha Longa Hotel & Golf Resort
This 117-room hotel Penha Longa Golf & Resort hotel was once a monastery. It's located in the hills behind Sintra, just outside Lisbon, where you'll find national palaces, museums, and antique stores.
