Get the royal treatment at the Four Seasons in Buenos Aires, a central-located hotel that is an oasis in the exclusive Recoleta district close to business, shopping and cultural activities. Divided into a modern tower and the French–style La Mansión, dating back to 1916, the hotel has flair with dark mahogany furniture offsetting warmer tones.
Settle into your spacious room with river or garden views, plush furnishings, marble baths, CD and DVD players, and all the little details make the Four Seasons a classic–signature bath robes, special mattresses and superlative service. For a splurge, opt for one of the seven 1,098-square ft. suites in the Mansion with private fireplaces. Built as a wedding present, the rose and white three–floor Mansion is a Louis XIII–style building, restored to its turn-of-the-century splendor.
Tucked between the manicured garden and Roman-style pool is the “secret garden” and retreat amid the bustling capital to enjoy mild weather. Be sure to try the hotel’s Sunday brunch, housed in the Mansion and with stations of food ranging from oysters and house-cured salmon from Patagonia to tender pastas, sushi, and typical brunch fare such as blinis. Or coordinate a wine flight with the in-house sommelier.
