As Janelas Verdes
Located in a late 18th-century palace in bohemian Santos, the As Janelas Verdes hotel was home and inspiration to the Portuguese novelist Eca de Quieros. Renovated in 2002, the 29 rooms maintain a neoclassical look with painted paneled walls, dark wood armoires and bedsteads, and plush floral and striped fabrics in cream colors. The wood-paneled library on the third floor opens up to a spacious, tiled terrace that overlooks the harbor. A buffet breakfast is served in the walled garden that is filled with mosaics, wrought iron, vines, and potted plants.
