Maksoud Plaza Hotel
Henry Maksoud’s entrepreneurship and tireless pursuit of exceeding expectations led him to erect, in one of the most vibrant cities in the world, an iconic building that would become reference and synonymous with hospitality for the decades since its foundation.
It attracted diverse people, histories and cultures, all passionate about hospitality and meeting the daily challenge of welcoming, serving and making the hotel a home away from home.
Henry Maksoud would not settle for just something better. He pursued being the best in everything: from laundry to housekeeping, from bar to helipad and to the impeccable service, whether in the restaurant or in the parking lot. Locals, brazilians and expatriates from all over the world joined in the common desire of exceeding expectations, at a time when there was still no talk of brand experience, almost 40 years ago. Yesterday, today and tomorrow, The Maksoud Plaza is a common ground between generations, each with stories and great memories to convey to friends and family.
We believe that the vision of the founder keeps pushing everyone ahead, day after day, in the endeavor of perpetuating the Maksoud brand and legacy.
About São Paulo
São Paulo is a metropolis of many faces. At the same time it is the most important economic center of Brazil, it is the capital of culture in Latin America; with leisure, knowledge and entertainment offers that match to no other. A typically urban metropolis covered in a vast green area.
An innovative and vanguard city that preserves in its architecture, arts and gastronomy a past composed by the mix of over 70 nationalities. And, in parallel to preserving traditions, it keeps itself modern. Tuned in is the correct term to describe it. To know better the city only two things are required: an open mind and the willingness to dive in head first in this city that never sleeps.
