Park Hyatt, Buenos Aires

Park Hyatt Buenos Aires

After my stay at Intercontinental Buenos Aires I moved to the Park Hyatt Buenos Aires on a Cash and Points rate. ($125 + 10000 Gold Passport Points). The contrast to the Intercontinental is immediate as you arrive at the lobby. Cool and understated the Park Hyatt contrasts hugely with the ornate lobby at the Intercon.

CHECK IN

The agent at check-in confirmed my rate, and the partial points redemption and that I would receive free internet and breakfast as part of being a Diamond Gold Passport member. They also confirmed my late check-out, useful as the United flight home did not leave until 9pm. After that I was escorted to my room.

The lift should have given me an idea of the sort of decor I would enjoy once I got there. Very chic.

When we exited the elevator, the agent accompanying me indicated that they had given me an upgrade to a suite. Goodness that was nice, having enjoyed one at the Intercon. The room was on the corner of the hotel, overlooking the main road where the entrance is.

Once inside there was a small corridor which led to both the sitting room, and through a large closet to the bedroom and bathroom.

LIVING ROOM

The living room had a large desk, a sofa, large flat screen TV, a coffee table, the coffee maker and mini-bar. Hardwood floors with carpets gave it a feel of being in a very smart house.

The views from the large windows were of other homes in adjacent streets.

The was a small visitor bathroom just off the entrance lobby:

In the room was the usual guide to the hotel, including a price list for everything that the hotel supply’s should they encounter anyone who takes an attraction to the items in the room, including the worlds most expensive ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign!

The walk through closet – a first for any hotel I recall – led first to the bedroom and then the bathroom.

BEDROOM

With bright white bedding and more hardwood floors with natural wood on the walls made it felt welcoming. The large amount of natural light from the corner windows made it feel airy.

The drapes were operated by a switch next to the bed. A second TV was in the room directly opposite the bed. I slept very well in the Hyatt Bed provided – it was firm enough for me, whilst the duvet kept me suitable warm. It was cold at night when I was there so this was most welcome.

Views from the bedroom were towards the port.

BATHROOM

The bathroom feels a little odd when you walk in, until you start to explore it. An essentially square room with a large wall that bisects it. This wall provides the support for the basins as well as the wall adjacent to the bath tub.

Tub? No that’s not the right word. It is a huge, deep luxurious bathing device – built for wallowing and not washing.

To focus on each area of the bathroom might give you an idea of how large it is, and what it provides.

With natural tones and white, the bathroom matched the rest of the suite. It was, I have to say, one of the most lovely bathrooms I have ever enjoyed.

ROOM SERVICE

As there was no lounge at the hotel, I chose to splash out on room service. I selected the gnocchi with pesto, and chocolate cake. When it arrived, after about twenty minutes, my floors butler accompanied the two members of room service staff in the delivery. They switched my Diamond Gold Passport amenity from red to white wine.

Goodness it was tasty. An excellent room service option I have to say.

BREAKFAST

After a superb nights sleep I went for breakfast in the restaurant. Hot options were available and chose scrambled eggs to go with the cold items from the buffet. The staff were lovely and my coffee cup was constantly refilled.

Leaving the restaurant I noticed how beautifully the public spaces are designed.

THE BUILDING

The bedrooms stretch over more than one part of the building and you can walk through the restaurant to experience the grounds. At the top of the slope is a separate restaurant which is open for lunch and dinner and accessible from the street by a separate walkway.

A waterfall tumbles down the hill, between the two parts of the hotel:

NEARBY

The old Park Hyatt, now rebranded, is a 10 minute walk away from the new Park Hyatt. I stayed here once many, many, years ago.

CHECK OUT

Processed easily, and after arranging a car to the airport, I left the hotel hoping to be able to return to one of the best Hyatt properties I have experienced.

  1. That’s the exact room we stayed in when we were there 2 years ago. Great property, and they took care of us when our flights were disrupted (and ultimately cancelled) due to volcano eruption in Chile. They even gave us a birthday cake for my partner’s birthday.
