A view from the front…a welcoming sight!

There is no better introduction to Buenos Aires than a stay at the Palacio Duhau, or Park Hyatt Buenos Aires! This 5 Star hotel is located in the Recoleta, an upper end residential neighborhood in the city of Buenos Aires. The Recoleta is known for its elegance, shopping, fine dining, and beautiful European style architecture. It is also known for its amazing Recoleta Cemetery, but more on that later!

The Park Hyatt, or Palacio Duhau, is not just a hotel, it is a hotel with a history. It is truly a palace, built in the 1920s on an Alvear Avenue lot belonging to Alejandro Hume, a railway executive. The property was sold to the Duhau family, important landowners, who commissioned an architect to build a mansion inspired by the Chateau du Marais in Paris. The result is a building of imposing neoclassic design, a beautiful sight, especially in the evening when it is lit to perfection.

The Palacio Duhau graciously invited me, and my guest, to enjoy a wine and cheese tasting, followed by a wonderful meal at their Restaurante and Vinoteca. We sampled both white and red Argentinian wines, and the Malbec was outstanding. Malbec is Argentina’s signature red grape, and is a testament to Argentinian wine. It has a taste of berry and honey, with a velvety texture. We had an amazing evening over wine, cheese, and a delicious meal that followed. Sitting in the gardens of the Palacio Duhau is a special experience on its own, the garden is beautiful with running water in the middle of it.

Our room was in the Posada building, where the view of the palace and the Vatican Embassy next door kept us captivated. Buenos Aires is very proud that their native son and Bishop, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, is now Pope Francis. The restaurant at the Posada building, the Gioia Restaurante and Terraces, looks up at the Palacio Gardens and the palace itself. We enjoyed breakfast there every morning, and had a few other meals there as well. Why leave the Palacio to dine when their restaurants are so fantastic?

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Palacio Duhau, Park Hyatt, Buenos Aires, and of course, Hyatt is always welcoming and gives a high level of service at all their locations. I have stayed in hotels all over the world, but I must say that the Palacio Duhau is one that will always linger in memory. The gardens, the view, and the elegant rooms of the palace creates an experience, not just a place to stay. The Palacio Duhau is the perfect companion for the exploration of a most cosmopolitan city, Buenos Aires.
