Known as "the Paris of South America," Buenos Aires is famous for its wine, tango dancing and French- and Spanish-influenced architecture. "The city's old world elegance and modern spirit come together" in the city's luxury hotel scene, says Travel + Leisure, and the Plaza Hotel Buenos Aires is a perfect example. 

Radiating that ambiance with crystal chandeliers and spacious rooms, the 4.5-star Plaza Hotel Buenos Aires has hosted famous guests like Louis Armstrong, Theodore Roosevelt and Queen Sofia of Spain. Free Wi-Fi is offered in public areas.

The location in the Retiro barrio (district) overlooking the lush Plaza San Martin "can't be beat," says Frommer's. The hotel's doorstep is paces from the famous pedestrian Calle Florida, popular for high-end shopping by day and tango dancing by night.

At the hotel's Plaza Bar, tuxedo-clad waiters serve classic cocktails -- "the same since before World War II" (Travel + Leisure) -- from behind the L-shaped mahogany bar. Lively jazz tunes fill the walls of this historic bar every Wednesday from March to November. Additionally, three restaurants cover breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel.

Other amenities include an outdoor pool, dry sauna, whirlpool and fitness center at the hotel's Racket Club & Spa. The hotel offers complimentary group fitness classes, along with towels, fruit and teas.

Fodor's says "rooms are comfortable, if not particularly spacious," with some offering fantastic views of the city.
