Fodor's Expert Review Alvear Art Hotel

Suipacha 1086, Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, 1036, Argentina

The sleek Alvear Art Hotel is set back behind some trees on a pedestrian-only street in the heart of the city’s business district. It has a younger, faster feel than the grand dame Alvear Palace Hotel, but delivers the same top-of-the-line service. Black-and-white photos of Buenos Aires decorate the rooms, which have heavenly beds that are turned down at night, and enormous marble bathrooms. Even though it’s only a block off noisy 9 de Julio, the double-paned windows, blackout blinds, and warm color palette of tans, creams, and light green create a quiet retreat. The glassed-in pool and whirlpool tub on the 17th floor provide fantastic city panoramas.
