"Elite Platinum" Certification
Posted February 19, 2015
Our property has been certified as “Elite Platinum” by the Advisory Board of  Elite Meetings International, based in Santa Barbara, California.

This is a particularly important award: Elite Platinum actually represents a new level of endorsement from the EMAB, the independent panel of veteran meeting planners and hoteliers who developed the standards for group meetings and incentives properties. Elite Platinum criteria was developed in response to demand from the collection of 20,000+ meeting professionals who visit EliteMeetings.com to research and book high-end hotels and resorts. This certification is earned, and recognition is granted only to properties offering exceptional experiences for groups.

 For Italy the selected properties are just 31 and the only hotel to represent the whole Liguria is the Excelsior itself. This is a great satisfaction for the Management and all the Staff who have always worked hard to promote the destination in the world.
The Excelsior! Member of "Top 50 World's Best Hotels" by the American Five Star Alliance
Posted February 19, 2015
The Excelsior Palace Hotel in Rapallo prepares itself for the season 2014 to receive the award of a new international prestigious recognition. The only five star luxury hotel of the Riviera, has been included in the "Top 50 World's Best Hotels" by the American Five Star Alliance. Five Star Alliance is the most important and comprehensive online directory of hotels and resorts, about 4,400 properties in 70 countries around the world, have been profoundly selected by a team of travel experts.

Clicking on the link below, you will find the complete list of all 50 hotels. Selected are seven Italian Hotels but the Excelsior Palace is the only one in the Ligurian area.

http://www.fivestaralliance.com/worlds-best-hotels-2014/2197/top-50-hotels-worldwide This award recognizes the decision, taken only two years ago, to invest, even being in a crises, in a structure which is highly significant to the Territory. In fact, the Hotel’s restyling has just begun last year by implementing a private sauna in the Relax Suite and a Jacuzzi at the Beach Club, building a new entrance at the Eden Roc Lounge & Restaurant as well as renovating the common areas.

The upcoming renewal projects include the veranda of the Lord Byron Restaurant, a new canopy, the restyling of the Yachting Bar, rebuilding of the connecting walkway between the main building at the Kursaal and the renovation of 40 rooms.

In 2015, the pool will be present its new design.
News from the "Duke of Windsor" Congress Centre
Posted September 10, 2012
It is well known that the Congress Centre of the Excelsior is the ideal place for important events.

What still few people know is that the conference areas have recently been restyled. They now include new and valuable furniture in the empire style and fine paintings dating from the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Even the stunning terrace of the Congress Centre has been enriched with the addition of flowered plants.

These new touches offer the rare opportunity to organize events at the seaside in an absolutely prestigious and elegant setting.

Such an atmosphere, together with a professional service, guarantees a successful meeting in a location of great appeal: Rapallo Bay and its marina on one side and the Portofino Coast on the other, a legendary destination.
