As winter descends upon the United States, summer hits full swing in the Southern Hemisphere. Visit the "Paris of the South" during the Buenos Aires Grand Hotel's Grand Opening celebration and save as much as 65% on competing hotels. Special rates for stays through Feb. 28 are $189 including breakfast, Wi-Fi and parking.
The 5-star hotel, located in the upscale Recoleta neighborhood, offers shuttle buses to the airport, cruise terminal and surrounding area for an additional cost.
Wander tree-lined streets filled with Victorian mansions, sidewalk cafes and trendy boutiques to the barrio's top tourist destination, Recoleta Cemetery. Here, tourists navigate the graveyard's mausoleums to the final resting place for prominent Argentinians such as Evita Peron.
Before sampling the city's never-ending nightlife, sip cocktails among the local "who's who" in the posh lobby bar. End the evening with panoramic views of Buenos Aires from the hotel's outdoor terrace and rooftop pool.
Update: Dec. 27-31 and Feb. 28 are now sold out for the advertised rate. Stays over these dates are $199 per night.
