Whether you're spending 1 day or 1 week in Fortaleza, the Holiday Inn Fortaleza has the location and amenities to make any trip to this coastal paradise a memorable one. With Iracema Beach across the street, 2 restaurants onsite, and complimentary wireless Internet in your room, you won't have to venture far for much during your stay.
The Holiday Inn is situated on the eastern end of the Praia de Iracema neighborhood, the heart of Fortaleza nightlife. Locals and tourists fill up these bars, music venues, and comedy clubs throughout the week. From the hotel, take a 30 minute stroll to the opposite end of the neighborhood to see the Centro de Turismo. This unique crafts market is housed inside a former prison where vendors sell items from inside old prison stalls, bars and all. You'll be just steps away from Avenida Beira Mar and the shops, bars, and the large fish market that line this beachfront thoroughfare. In addition to Iracema Beach, Futuro Beach is definitely worth a visit. Take a 10 minute cab ride from the hotel and spend an afternoon here enjoying cold drinks under one of the beaches' idyllic leaf-roofed cabanas.
Back at the hotel you can relax by the beautiful, shaded outdoor pool surrounded by recliners and palm trees. Massage is available with advance reservations. If you're bringing kids, the kids' club and play room is a welcome amenity. You can send a fax or check your email with complimentary wireless Internet access. The hotel also has convenient free onsite parking and an onsite car rental. And fine French cuisine on the Brazilian coast? Of course! The hotel's Marcel restaurant offers pre fixe and a la carte menus in an elegant dining atmosphere. O Capo Restaurant features Brazilian and international dishes throughout the day in a space overlooking the beach. Be sure to try the complimentary breakfast buffet and wood fired pizzas.
