Fodor's Review

The standard-bearer for upscale sophistication since 1932, the Alvear Palace is undoubtedly the shining star of the city's hotel scene: scores of dignitaries, celebrities, and VIPs have passed through its doors over the years, and they keep coming back for the world-class service and refined atmosphere. Elegantly decorated rooms feature silky carpets, gorgeous draperies, and featherbeds topped with Egyptian-cotton linens. Guests staying in any one of the 100 suites receive the services of a white-gloved personal butler who will unpack your bags, press your wrinkled clothes, and tend to your every need. The lunch buffet and afternoon tea at L'Orangerie are out of this world, and the superchic French restaurant La Bourgogne is one of the city's best.

Memorable Return to Lovely Business & Holiday Property

We recently (early January, '16) enjoyed a lovely stay at the Alvear Palace, before flying home to Singapore (by way of Sao Paulo and Barcelona). Our Alvear visit concluded a Christmas & New Year's holiday in Patagonia (spectacular stay at the "explora Patagonia") and interior Antarctica (thanks to some wondrous friends and pilots at Adventure Network International). Our Alvear lodging entailed an upgrade to a Deluxe Premier Suite, which

was ideal for us. During our stay, I was obliged to attend meetings in BA. One Alvear evening I had the honour of hosting a long-time friend and business partner of my father at the hotel's La Bourgogne restaurant; superb service, cuisine, company and Champagne. I initially encountered the Alvear ~ 25 years ago, after a mountaineering expedition in the Andes; she's aging rather well. Savour your Alvear stays.
