Excelsior Review

This 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. The expansive breakfast buffet is served in the window-banked restaurant, which faces the avenue and beach. The equally elaborate lunch and dinner buffets cost roughly R$40. The rooftop bar and pool area provides an escape from the hustle and bustle.
