The iconic Hotel Excelsior was officially opened last night in a gala ceremony. After months of reconstruction work the totally renovated Hotel Excelsior now has a new shine and a modern new look.
With 158 luxury rooms, including 19 suites and 139 double rooms, the Dubrovnik hotel saw root and branch reconstruction works this winter, the first major investment on the hotel since 2008.
The owner of the Adriatic Luxury Hotels group, the company that has Hotel Excelsior in its portfolio, Davor Lukšić thanked everyone for assisting and praised the fact that this hotel with great traditions now has a contemporary look. And Dubrovnik's Mayor Mato Franković addressed the guests. On behalf of the Prime Minister and the Government of the Republic of Croatia, he welcomed every such contribution to investment in tourism.
Almost half a million Kuna was invested in every room of the Hotel Excelsior and all of the interior spaces have been renovated. The hotel was originally created on the foundations of Ville Odak, built in 1913, which was a luxurious and glamorous hotel. The idea of the reconstruction is to recreate this look and the new look Hotel Excelsior is a revival of the splendid era of the Hotel Excelsior. Over the years many world famous celebrities, national politicians, stars of the silver screen and kings and queens have stayed in the Hotel Excelsior and the new look Excelsior is once again a highlight of Dubrovnik’s tourism.
