Juicy Tidbits

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
