Expectations are low

Four hours before my flight and despite our vast combined knowledge of Google search functionality my boss and I have unsuccessfully found a short term apartment rental option in central São Paulo and have almost failed to find any accommodation at all. Consequently our humble lodgings for the first 4 days will be the Holiday Inn in Parque Anhembi. Judging by Google street view the area has few redeeming features..

looks like you won't be short of petrol, or water, or that you could have all the dirt in your pipes pumped out!

Well, things are picking up already. I just found out I am actually located inside (yes, inside!) São Paulo's Indy300 circuit, just beyond the Sambadrome straight:

Incidentally I am also a short (1,5km) walk from the infamous and now demolished Carandiru prison, not really a tourist attraction but interesting nonetheless:
