Lodging emperors (Akihito), screen sirens (Sophia Loren), presidents (Nelson Mandela) and dodgy Swedish pop-rock duos (Roxette) since 1932, the Alvear is comfortably the city’s most famous hotel. If you’re an average Joe like me, stepping into the gleaming marble lobby will make you feel twice as classy, five times as wealthy, and around ten years older. French restaurant La Bourgogne is overrated; lunch, tea and brunch spot L’Orangerie is not.
