Policies

Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

The property has connecting/adjoining rooms, which are subject to availability and can be requested by contacting the property using the number on the booking confirmation.

Noise-free guestrooms cannot be guaranteed.

service lacking
We had lights that did not work. We asked several times to get them fixed and they never worked. Our air conditioning hardly worked properly.

Windsor Excelsior is like home for me The staff is wonderful! Fábio Chagas - the manager is super attentive to details - a great professional I strongly recommend Windsor Excelsior
Mariamelia, us3 night business trip
Very good 8,0
Enjoyed our stay, but.....
Because I am coming from the USA and had such an early arrival I feel the hotel could do more to accommodate for early arrivals and late check out without any additional charge. Even if it was at 2 pm instead of noon. I work for a major airline and we choose places based on recommendations regarding how accommodating hotels are. I also feel like the transportation from the airport was a hassle and I was very pleased when the hotel didn’t attempt to assist me but just suggested I keep on trying to get through to the shuttle company. I am the hotels guest not the shuttle company’s I think they should have cared about that more. One last thing we arrived at the hotel at 9 am because of our early arrival from the USA I think it would have been more welcoming to allow tour guests to at least have breakfast since we couldn’t check in until 2. It just would have been a warmer welcoming experience. I’m Choosing to say all of this because perhaps the hotel will do things differently in the future.
