Why we choose Park Hyatt Buenos Aires

A palace-turned-luxury-hotel in glamorous Buenos Aires

  • An underground walkway doubles as a gallery, showcasing international and local artists
  • The Palace’s 23 guestrooms boast antique and modern Persian carpets
  • Take tango lessons in the historic salon with tapas and wine on the side

At the Palacio Duhau, their “luxury is personal” motto translates into lots of chic options and simple, contemporary elegance. They don’t have to try to impress you; it just happens. One tipsy example: the Vinoteca, which houses an astounding 7,000 bottles of Argentinean wine (including the country’s famed Malbec). Fashionable Recoleta neighborhood cooperates with its upscale yet understated vibe, as it’s dotted with neoclassical architecture and exclusive designer boutiques.

What you need to know about the hotel

The hotel combines historic palacio with modern additions and a generous dose of Buenos Aires passion

  • The exclusive Duhau Suite has a stunning wrap-around balcony, a private pantry that allows discreet service and direct-access VIP parking area
  • The hotel is famous for its unique garden, which covers more than half of the 47,300-square-foot property and connects both buildings
  • An added Vinoteca pleasure: a Cheese Room with the best artisanal Argentinean cheeses selected by the hotel’s own Maître Fromager

In 2012 alone, Palacio Duhua was named Best Hotel in Central & South America by Condé Nast Traveler readers and listed among Travel + Leisure’s Top Ten Best Service Hotels Worldwide. Why? This Park Hyatt property gets the details right. Its 165 rooms and suites are divided between a restored palace built in 1935 and a modern, new building. The Palace section’s 23 rooms are richly decorated with silks, antiques and crystal chandeliers; the Posadas building offers a more contemporary aura, exemplified by black-and-white photographs of Buenos Aires on the walls.

In addition to the celebrated Vinoteca, the hotel offers three restaurants and a bar that specialize in Argentinean cuisine, Italian dishes and afternoon tea. There’s also the Ahín Wellness & Spa, which includes perks like an indoor heated swimming pool and a fitness studio.

Where is it and what's nearby

Super central location, in the buzzy, high fashion Recoleta district

  • Polo is huge in Buenos Aires, so catch some of the world’s best players during a match or learn the sport via customized clinic
  • The Evita Perón Tour recreates her life, from her meteoric rise to her tragic death (including where she was mummified) to her ongoing myth
  • For shopping nirvana, step outside the hotel onto Alvear Avenue for brands like Valentino and Armani, or hit Santa Fe Avenue for leather and hand-made goodies

Sophisticated and stylish, Buenos Aires is often called the “Paris of South America”. The Argentinean capital is a vibrant urban center that hasn’t forgotten its past, and Palacio Duhau is a prime example. One of the few remaining palaces representing the city’s traditional and exclusive “porteña” aristocracy, it now beautifully coexists with ultra-modern buildings.

The hotel is located in the French heritage district of Recoleta, a traditional downtown neighborhood with several historically important buildings. In addition to great architecture, Buenos Aires is a cultural and artistic bonanza encompassing such diverse elements as polo, tango, phenomenal museums and one of the most acoustically perfect opera houses in the world. It’s the ideal city to explore your passion—or find a new one.

How to enjoy Argentina

What do you get if you mix Latin passion with European elegance, the only community outside Wales that speaks Welsh and a national love of soccer (futbolpasion) that is elevated to quite dizzying heights? Argentina, of course

  • For the ultimate Argentine experience, savor a melt-in-the-mouth steak dinner before catching a Boca Juniors home game
  • Perhaps understandably for a nation known for its beef, leather goods are exquisite here; treat yourself to a bag or new shoes
  • From Buenos Aires, take a boat across the world’s widest river to explore one of South America’s other iconic capitals, Uruguay’s Montevideo

The largest of the world’s Spanish-speaking countries, Argentina encompasses more than 1 million square miles of natural wonder and Latin passion. To the North there is the thunderously awe-inspiring Iguassu falls. To the South, Patagonia’s stunning Perito Moreno Glacier rumbles and cracks as huge chunks crumble into the water. To the West are the impassive Andes, reaching a peak of more than 20,000 ft near Mendoza and San Juan.

Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires, also captures the passion and intensity of the nation’s stunning landscape. This is perhaps best witnessed in one of the city’s most famous exports; tango. Sultry, steamy, this dance of passion is not confined to professionals but practised by locals of all ages throughout the city’s dancehalls, known locally as milongas.

  • We say

    An inspired hotel that combines old and new. Dining in the garden is a favorite with our clients.

  • A word from the hotel

    One of the “must do” experiences at our hotel, and in Argentina in general, is to try a beautifully wood fire-grilled steak.? We crafted a selection of the best breeds and most flavorful cuts of beef—Hereford, Black Angus Beef, Argentine Wagyu and Mestizo breeds with different aging times and procedures—and, to give our guests the best experience we serve them as a tasting, so they can try, compare and enjoy the best that our country has to offer.
