“Rosewood has been waiting for the right opportunity to enter South America and I firmly believe this is it,” says Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “As São Paulo is becoming one of the most dynamic cities of the 21st century, Rosewood is transforming this historic property with contemporary Brazilian energy. We are excited to give this landmark building a new lease on life and have it continue to be a place of joy and celebration.”
“When I discovered Cidade Matarazzo, it was a sleeping beauty waiting to be woken,” says Alexandre Allard, president of Groupe Allard. “With its philosophy of A Sense of Place, Rosewood has proved that they recognise the importance of a hotel reflecting its location’s culture and history. I am pleased that Rosewood São Paulo will be the company’s first foray into South America and will stand alongside renowned hotels such as The Carlyle.”
