In Pesaro, there is a luxury 5-star hotel that looks like an impossible meeting place between aesthetic refinement, technological innovation, and energy saving. The renovation project of the Excelsior in Pesaro, designed by Marco Gaudenzi, stands between the resorts of the Riviera, a model of environmental sustainability. The Hotel is equipped with a complex home automation system that can handle the entire structure. Maximum attention to waste reduction not only in hotel rooms but especially in areas for common use. The particular efficiency of the Excelsior home automation system is due to this innovative tri-generation plant that uses methane gas from the public network to produce all the energy needed to operate the hotel. Electricity, hot water, heating, and cooling runs on tri-generation, allowing the hotel’s energy independence, reducing consumption by 40% and reducing the input of CO2 into the atmosphere.


The Excelsior has been created to offer its guests and all those who appreciate the art of living well, a far from the ordinary destination and a lifestyle of modern luxury. Recalling the glamorous atmosphere of the 1950s, the Excelsior experience is dedicated to living well. Finesse and elegance grace every moment, private or professional, vacation or business. This is a boutique hotel where hospitality and leisure, combined with discretion and charm, create a quiet haven, rich in art, beauty and stunning views. Not a place to simply pass through – a true “home away from home”, gracefully luxurious, the epitome of the Excelsior concept. Our 52 rooms divided into Suite, Comfort, Superior, and Deluxe rooms have distinctive features, but the quality displayed is the same for each room. Getting around Pesaro and its surrounding areas by car is extremely easy. Set out on a journey to go visit the most famous places scattered around the Marche region (Urbino, Gradara, San Leo, Fano Frasassi Caves). The Excelsior Hotel, the pearl of the Adriatic Riviera, offers exclusive services to all those traveling by car. Among the additional services, an underground car parking with direct access to both the reception and the rooms’ floors is at guests’ disposal: one more appealing reason which will guarantee you extra comfort and privacy during your stay in our luxury environment. The hotel also offers the free use of bicycles upon availability.



Restaurant: Part of the Excelsior unique experience, the ‘59 Restaurant is the right 5-star alternative when looking for more sophisticated dishes. Here you can enjoy delectable local dishes and great wine. The creativity of the chefs highlights the Mediterranean freshness of its seafood and the flavour of local Marchigian PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) and PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) products. Staff provides guests with a 5-star quality at all times. The possibility of special gluten-free, lactose-free menus, as well as vegetarian and vegan menus. 60 internal table settings with a smoking area and 10 table settings in the open are at the guest's disposal.



Bistro: During the day, the Bistrò Excelsior offers the pleasures of a New-York bakery with inviting fresh bread and sweet delicacies in a more dynamic and informal first-class atmosphere. In the evening the Bistrò Excelsior becomes the ideal, glamorous setting for lounge aperitifs. Our expert and charming barmen will make your cocktail experience as tasteful and enjoyable as possible. Savor here all the magic of the Excelsior atmosphere. 70 internal roomy table settings, and 25 external table settings with outdoor bar and bar service at our guests’ disposal.



Spa: Enjoy adorable dawns as you unwind in a soothing spa pool or in a hydromassage bath in the 5-star panoramic spa centre, overlooking the Adriatic through wide, floor-to-ceiling glass panels. Enjoy the exclusive spa treatments designed to enhance your path to personal revitalization, and help balance your body and mind.



Beach: Breathe an atmosphere of past times. Time stands still on the Excelsior Lido: here every detail evokes the glamorous atmosphere of the 1950s: broken white shades, clean lines, open and geometrical spaces, smooth surfaces and delicate textures. Lovely beach cabanas for relaxing moments away from everyday life turmoil. Baby club service available to look after the little ones. The ‘50s interior design concepts of the hotel extend to the Excelsior Lido emphasising the colour white.  The lido is equipped with 80 parasols (each 100 inches wide), 4 cabanas, 1 ristobar, 18 changing cabins, 2 hydromassage pools, and 1 large sitting room where both cocktails and food are served. In the summertime the Excelsior Lido turns into an exciting musical setting, offering first class entertainment, including happy hour. A must, not to be missed.
