Windsor Excelsior

Av. Atlântica 1800, Rio de Janeiro, 22021–001, Brazil

This beachfront hotel, part of the Windsor chain, may have been built in the 1950s, but its look is sleek and contemporary—from the sparkling marble lobby to the guest-room closets paneled in gleaming Brazilian redwood. Ask for a room with a view over Copacabana Beach. There's a pool with lovely views out to sea, as well as beach service that includes towels, chairs, and parasols. The expansive breakfast buffet is served in the window-banked restaurant, which also serves a vast buffet at lunch and dinner.
