Fodor's Expert Review Alvear Art Hotel

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

The newest property from the country's most respected lodging chain, 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 some of the best panoramas in the city.
