We just happened to stay at the Sheraton Montevideo
which is boasted as the most luxurious place to stay in town. We can vouch for the excellent service. Many of the rooms have beach views, as the hotel is steps away from Rambla Mahatma Ghandi(the boardwalk named after said heroe). The Sheraton is also adjacent to Punta Carretas Shopping, which is very convinient, as you can imagine. I highly recommend the DBD bookstore. They carry some impressive titles including Latin American classics and important works of theory for even the most picky academic like myself. Their staff is great.
I would also recommend eating a chivito (more on this god of sandwhiches to follow) at the Don Peperone next door (popular with tourists and locals alike). It was great to just sit outside in the courtyard enjoying good company, the sea breeze and some Chopp.
