Hotel PortoBay LiberdadeSteps away from Avenida da Liberdade—an avenue lined with some of the city's high-end boutiques—the new PortoBay Liberdade is a 98-room boutique hotel designed by Lisbon-native architect Frederico Valsassina. Valsassina carefully preserved the historic facade while incorporating stylish design inside . The rooftop is kitted out with patio furniture, umbrellas, and wood decking, creating a comfortable scene that doesn’t compete with city views. Stop by the hotel bar, Deck 7, for traditional Portuguese cuisine (the staff recommends the Prego: a beef sandwich served on bolo do caco) and a glass of local wine.
