Rio de Janeiro is one of the most famous cities in South America that caters to a large number of tourists from all over the world. The Rio Carnival is what attracts the biggest crowds from around the globe as well. The Cariocas, residents of Rio, are among the most hospitable people anywhere around the world. This hospitality is also evident from the large number of hotels and other accommodation options in Rio de Janeiro. Among the finest hotels that extend their hospitality to visitors is the Othon group of hotels.

Seventy Years of Othon

Beginning in 1943, Othon hotels have grown to have a diverse portfolio of more than 2,000 rooms in 28 properties including five brands in Brazil, Portugal and the USA. The Aeroporto Othon is the first Othon hotel in Rio that opened to the public in 1944. The group now has seven hotels established in the Copacabana beach area in Rio alone with the Olinda Othon Hotel being the first to be built at Copacabana. Othon five star luxury hotels include the Rio Othon Palace, Bahia Othon Palace and Belo Horizonte Othon Palace. Most of the rooms are spacious with balconies overlooking the sea.
