Constructed in 1992 as a Park Hyatt Hotel and renovated following its 2002 transfer, the Buenos Aires Four Seasons Hotel is a 13-floor main marble tower that combines contemporary and French styles. The main tower was built overlooking a French Renaissance-styled mansion, which houses the suites; the hotel currently houses 138 guest rooms, including 27 suites. The Mansion was a wedding gift from Mr. Felix Alzaga Unzué to his wife Elena Peña in 1920, and remains one of the most architecturally significant mansions in the Recoleta area.
The mansion adds a Parisian atmosphere to the hotel, with its stone façade and Belle Époque style. The Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires is South America’s only “World’s Best Hotel” recognized by Institutional Investor and rated in the Top 100 International Hotels, Resorts and Spas by Zagat in 2006.

“Certainly there is not the fight recorded in Concord history, at least, if in the history of America, that will bear a moments comparison with this, whether for the numbers engaged in it, or for the patriotism and heroism displayed.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“I saw the Arab map.
It resembled a mare shuffling on,
dragging its history like saddlebags,
nearing its tomb and the pitch of hell.”
