Travel+Leisure Best Luxury Hotels in Buenos Aires: Algodon Mansion
By: Matt Chesterton
The city’s most luxurious hotels are concentrated in Recoleta, its most luxurious neighborhood. Pretty much any building here could be converted into a five-star property, and many of them have. Palacio Duhau, for example, a magnificent Neoclassical pile from the 1920s, stood empty for several decades before Hyatt Hotels acquired it in 2002, reopening it as a Park Hyatt four years later. For once, the profit interests of a multinational and the heritage interests of a city found themselves in perfect alignment.
It’s the little things that count: The iPod-synced hydrotherapy massage tub; the temperature-controlled wine rack behind the damask sofa; the rooftop cognac and cigar bar. Housed in a handsome Recoleta mansion from 1912, this luxe boutique delivers a high-end experience with nonchalant aplomb. For the urban leg of a honeymoon, nowhere could be better.
