Excelsior Grand Hotel Review

Large and modern, with a restrained atmosphere and impeccably designed rooms, this hotel sits in a quiet part of downtown Catania. The marbled lobby is spacious and guest rooms have a careful balance of neoclassical and new furnishings, with double-pane windows adding to the peace—ask for a room facing Piazza Verga, a neat tree-lined square. The service can be erratic, though, as the hotel tends to fill up with groups. You can dine at the Ristorante Le Zagare, while the American Bar should provide solace if you're craving a Manhattan.
