Windsor chain is honored in the Hotel Expansion category

The honoree in the “Hotel Expansion” category was Rede Windsor, for its Windsor Leme unit. As a reference in the tourism sector for 36 years, owner of one of the largest independent hotel groups in the country, it has 15 units in Rio de Janeiro – between Zona Sul, Barra da Tijuca and Centro –, in addition to two units in Brasília. 

In 2021, the chain decided to retrofit the Windsor Leme hotel, one of the chain's main units in the city's South Zone, which ended in the first half of 2023. The unit underwent a modernization and updating process, which included accommodation, facade and lobby, in addition to the events area, which has an exclusive floor with six rooms.

The challenge was to maintain the quality standard of accommodation, events and food and beverage services with even more modern facilities, while preserving the unique characteristics and history of the hotel. The process involved changing furniture, adapting new processes, in addition to selecting professionals. And this is all focusing on the strong recovery of tourism post-pandemic.

To this end, the company sought to invest to further improve the hotel experience, considering improvements to the infrastructure of the Leme unit and thus promoting retrofit.

The work at Windsor Leme began in August 2021 and was completed in the first half of 2023, in two stages (the first took place from August 2021 to November 2022, focused on infrastructure and the second on renovation of the hotel's external area). The facade was retrofitted, 168 apartments were renovated, the event halls were improved and the lobby was completely renovated. The chain also promoted revitalization around the hotel and the renovation of the sidewalk, benches and tree planting in the region.
