One of the best anywhere

Posted Jan 17, 2017
Pros: The dedication of the staff to personal, friendly, professional service; the location; the decor; the amenities. Everything is absolutely top flight.
Cons: More food items on the bar menu. Seriously, that's all I've got for improvement, and that's a quibble.
Location: The Recoleta is the older of the higher end neighborhoods. High end stores abound. The Recoleta cemetery is right there.
I last stayed at the Alvear Palace in 2004. It was memorable. I hoped it would be that good today. It was better. They've added a spa and a fitness center and moved the pool to the roof. Their included breakfast is famous and properly so. Their brunch on Sunday was remarkable. The entire staff is incredibly service oriented. When you post a sign saying please clean my room, less than an hour later it is completely cleaned. I missed turn down service because I was in the room later one day. They left a note saying 'call at any time' for turn down. I didn't. I went out in the evening and when I returned they had turned down my room. The food is good. The setting is quite grand. Through Expedia I actually was notified that the rate had gone down. I upgraded to a junior suite for less money. The concierges booked shows, recommended wonderful restaurants and made arrangements for a private guided tour. This hotel remains one of the best I have stayed at anywhere in the world. Think the St. Regis, but Latin.

An oassis of peace in a calm neighborhood, yet close to all the main activities in Buenos Aires. Great Restaurant with nice French twist.
