Travel + Leisure says..."The posh Alvear Palace Hotel, which celebrated its 80th birthday in 2012, recalls Buenos Aires’s Europhile past. Afternoon tea in the L'Orangerie restaurant combines English tradition with Argentina’s obsession for sweets (try the Alvear Cake, smothered in dulce de leche); chef Jean Paul Bondoux’s La Bourgogne serves the city’s best French cuisine (using Argentine ingredients); the design is pure Louis XV; and even the bathroom amenities are French (custom-made for the hotel by Parisian designer Hermès). A top-to-bottom 2011 remodeling dropped the room count from 210 to 191, expanding room size, adding a new Grand Suite, and installing hydromassage bathtubs and LCD TVs in the bathrooms. Service remains top-notch: a bilingual butler assists guests with everything from unpacking and ironing to drawing a bath." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."It's "class all the way" at this "old-world Belle E�?Âpoque landmark" with soaring ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and Corinthian columns near Recoleta Cemetery. Built in 1932, it has rooms designed in Louis XIV and Louis XVI style, with silk drapes, Empire-style furniture, and paintings by Argentine artists. The cuisine is French at La Bourgogne, while L'Orangerie y el Jardin d'Hiver serves a breakfast buffet that's "a real treat" and afternoon tea with white-gloved waiters. The spa has a trompe l'oeil mural." ~From CondeNastTraveler.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Sited in the central highlands, this plantation-style lodge has an orchid house, stables, and an old church on its grounds. “We love the blend of refinement and Hawaiian aloha spirit.” Gold and red combine with plaid and floral prints in rooms with carved headboards. The Dining Room is known for its seafood and estate-grown ingredients, while the more casual Terrace offers bistro fare with garden views—“we’ve never had a bad meal there.” Guests can take part in interactive cultural classes or give back through volunteer programs. “Staff were superb, especially to the little ones.” Work out the kinks with a hot stone massage at the spa." ~From CondeNastTraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."An 1893 institution on the Spanish Steps, "it's by far the best location in Rome." Individually designed rooms are filled with art, antiques, Venetian lamps, Limoges porcelain, and trompe l'oeil paintings. In spring 2010, one wing was updated with new decor and larger closets. Imago's panorama of the Eternal City accompanies inventive dishes such as cuttlefish on a "potato cloud." -From Conde Nast Traveler

Conde Nast Traveler says..."What’s Rome without the Hassler?” Atop the Spanish Steps, this 1893 institution has “the absolute best view over the historical heart of Rome.” The sixth-floor restaurant, Imàgo, has panoramic vistas and serves regional cuisine. Interiors are in shades of ocher, red, and cream, while individually designed rooms have Limoges porcelain, velvet headboards, and Venetian lamps. The seventh-floor Penthouse has a beige C-shaped sofa, a walnut-paneled sitting room, and a 1,700-square-foot terrace with expansive Eternal City views. “The elegance, sophistication, friendliness, and warmth can be seen and felt here.” “Staff are incredible, especially the concierge.”~From cntraveler.com

Travel + Leisure says...Grace Kelly honeymooned at this turn-of-the-century palace at the top of the Spanish Steps, and it's still the hotel of choice for many of today's celebs and stylish tastemakers in search of old-world elegance (Gwyneth, TomKat, and Victoria Beckham are all regulars). Renowned for its personalized service, the Hassler is a family affairaa place where guest relations are taken very seriously. The 95 stately rooms are a checklist of classic good taste, with elaborate moldings, gilded furniture, French silks, 16th-century antiques, Limoges porcelain, playful frescoes, and marble, marble, marble, plus mod cons like flat-screen TV's. Imgo, its modern Italian restaurant, has heart-stopping views of St. Peter's Basilica and Rome's terracotta-tiled roofs. And the concierges can accommodate just about any request, including mapping out routes through the Villa Borghese gardens, near the hotel." -From Travel + Leisure
