Fodor's Review

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.
