Subject: Lisbon Hotel
We just got back from Lisbon and saw the request for a hotel close to the airport. This may be too late, but for what it's worth - We also had to be at the airport early so stayed at the Altis Park Hotel - Av. Engenheiro Arantes e Oliveira, 9 Lisboa Tel (351) 218 434 200 E-mail: altisparkhotel http://www.portugalvirtual.pt/altishotels It's not what you'd call charming or small and special. It's big and tall, but comfortable and with all the essentials - wake up calls and direct line to the taxis so they can get a cab in 5 min. - and it takes 15 minutes to get to the airport - guaranteed! And while the hotel itself isn't quaint - there is a Metro stop directly across the street so it's easy to spend those last few minutes/hours in the Baixa or wherever. Joy Habenicht Boulder, Colorado
