The latest star in this re-energized
city, the capital of Argentina, is the new Park Hyatt
Buenos Aires, right. The property is housed in the magnificently
restored 1930s Palacio Duhua, a grand mansion that has been
tastefully expanded to include a 142-room hotel tower, a
full-service spa, a pool, a restaurant and an art gallery, along
with 10,000 square feet of meeting space.
For a taste of authentic local color,
must-have memento shopping and a good dose of high energy, visit
the San Telmo Sunday market (www.feriadesantelmo.com) and the Club Athletico
(fernandezfierro.com). Stay long enough to experience
the 15-piece tango orchestra as it roars to life.
