Touching down in Lisbon, a familiar feeling of excitement settled in. My eyes were set on traditional Portuguese dishes, winding streets, tiled walls, and that classic Lisbon sunset.
This time returning back to Lisbon, I knew exactly what I wanted (rather needed) to experience. I craved to be a part of the daily life, getting a taste of what it meant to be a local. Arriving at the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, it was safe to say immediately I was in good hands.
Upon entering through the swinging doors, the modern lobby opened up to a light-filled room. Marked by local art, and bright colors, the lobby of the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon was a comforting welcome to the journey. Being booked into an Executive Suite, the private check-in afforded a quiet and peaceful process to getting into the room as quickly as possible. Before getting settled, a treatment downstairs in the expansive 3500 sq. ft. spa, a dip in the hydrotherapy pool, and a massage was a necessity.
Checking into the suite, the first thing I laid my eyes on was the view. The panoramic view over Lisbon's city was breathtaking, reminding you what great adventures lay ahead. The suite was inviting, and spacious with a separate large living room and bedroom. It had all the luxuries one could ask for in a modern room — a desk, large closet, and one beautifully spacious bathroom. At the end of each day, I found myself cozying up after a soak and into the Corinthia's comfortable robes, falling asleep peacefully.
After the first night's rest, it was time to dive into everything that is Lisbon. The art, creativity, and history that awaits to be discovered in Lisbon is endless. With many options, the concierge team at the Lisbon Corinthia knows how to point you in the right direction, creating that unique local experience. Their wealth of knowledge on Lisbon's vast experiences found my time to be memorable. I had an opportunity to visit a local fashion designer, dive into the LX Factory district, and get into the historic Jerónimos Monastery (stay tuned for the local's guide). Even with a second visit to Lisbon, with the aid of the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, I was able to have an unique visit.
As the trip came to an end, I was left with one feeling: Lisbon is mesmerizing, and the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon knows how to capture exactly that. The time wandering through the Alfama or Bairro Alto was just as delightful as it was to return back to the comfort of the hotel.
