The city's first deluxe hotel is still among its most elegant. Rooms are tastefully decorated, with russet-hue quilts and rugs set off by blond-wood furniture and cream walls. There's a top-notch business center and a beautiful marble lobby. Upper-crust Meridanos recommend Spasso Italian restaurant as a fine place to have a drink in the evening. For a seafood extravaganza, don't miss the M$290 buffet at the on-site Peregrina bistro, Friday afternoons from 1 to 5.
