Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires
This Recoleta hotel is where rock legends such as Rod Stewart and Madonna stay when in town. The Four Seasons has just gone through an impeccable redesign, and both comfort and service levels are as high as they could be. The Buenos Aires landmark comprises a modern, 12-story tower and a handsome Belle Époque mansion, connected by immaculately landscaped gardens and two swimming pools. Tower rooms are full of color (red flowers, orange throw pillows), prints (plaid curtains, patterned chairs), and gloss (Italian marble in the bathrooms). With their glass chandeliers, gilded mirrors, and antique tea sets, the sprawling Mansion suites embody classic French opulence. Rejuvenate at in-house spa Cielo; head to the polo-inspired Pony Line bar, which serves one of the best burgers in town; or order smart-casual Argentine fare at Elena restaurant, which is helmed by award-winning chef Juan Gaffuri. Weekends at Elena are reserved for Nuestro Secreto, a cool asado concept.
