Top Lisbon hotels for corporate events

When you travel to Lisbon with a large group opportunities can seem slightly limited at first. The old historical center consists of medieval and late 18th century street plans and buildings that are attractive, historical and beautiful but not suited to large groups. The Space for big hotels is limited as are possibilities for events and meetings. However within walking distance in the newer created business areas there is plenty of opportunity for groups of any size to use modern and fully equipped event spaces and hotels that cater to any groups needs in various budgets.

The hotels chosen were chosen based on various criteria. The 5 main ones are their capacity to accommodate large groups, their event capacity, proximity to the city center, 4 or 5 star, well reviewed

Lisbon`s best large luxury hotel locations

The tightly build old center of Lisbon does not provide much possibility for large hotels that can host bigger groups. For the  larger luxury hotels 2 neighborhoods seem most prominent.
1. the area starting in the Avenida da Liberdade and stretching around the Marques de Pombal square
2. the area around the Oriente train/ Metro station, Parquezx de Nacoes.

The Avenida da Liberdade and Marques de Pombal square

The Avenida da Liberdade is the main avenue of Lisbon, starting in the centre it stretches 1,2km Northwards ending on the Marques de Pombal square. The avenue is the grandest of Lisbon and home to the international designer shops, culinary restaurants and luxury hotels.
The Marques de Pombal square located between the Avenida de Liberdade and the Eduardo VII park in an important business area of Lisbon within short distance of the historical centre.

 

The Oriente / Parque das Nações area

The Parque das Nações is the newest district of Lisbon set up to host the world exhibition in 1998 to commemorate Vasco de Gama`s discoveries 500 years prior. This area has become the home of summits and conferences in Lisbon and some of the major hotels. With its modern infrastructures, easy access, proximity to Lisbon airport and large offer of modern conferencing spaces, it is a popular location for business events in Lisbon.
