Guests are given star treatment the moment they enter Faena Hotel Buenos Aires. Top-hatted doormen usher visitors onto the red carpet often lined with the beautiful people of Buenos Aires. Once a storage mill, the renovated property is now home to two top-notch restaurants, one of the hottest bars in town and a basement cabaret with nightly tango shows. Upon arrival guests issued cell phones so “experience managers” can attend to their every whim.
El Mercado serves authentic asado barbecue and El Bistro is a glamorous all-white dining room where traditional Argentine recipes are presented in inventive ways under sparkling chandeliers. The Library Lounge hosts DJs and live music, and celebrities like Coldplay’s Christ Martin have shown up to play the lounge’s baby grand.
Rooms are fashioned in dramatic Belle Époque design with red velvet curtains, white leather furniture and gold accents. Most rooms include claw foot tubs, glass-walled bathrooms and large picture windows looking out at the skyline.
An open-air courtyard of manicured trees and red umbrellas surrounds the pool with a gold crown as its centerpiece. The property’s spa specializes in holistic treatments in a space including a hammam, sauna, beauty parlor and fitness center.
The hotel is in Puerto Madero, the riverfront barrio home to brick warehouses refurbished as restaurants, boutiques and some of the city’s most expensive real estate. The Faena Arts Center is a five-minute walk from the hotel and the historic center of San Telmo is a five-minute cab ride.
