After a short trip to Carmelo in Uruguay I was back in the Argentinian capital to explore my last hotel for my project. Park Hyatt Palacio Duhau. I arrived in the hotel and received a warm welcome from receptionists and the marketing manager before being escorted to my room. I stayed in a Park Deluxe Suite and it was very nice with a separate living room. The room didn’t have any surprises, but was up the the standards you would expect in a great Park Hyatt. The only surprise was the products in the bathroom. Caledonio products which I never had seen before. They were quite good and it’s always nice to try something new. Overall Park Hyatt is a winner in Buenos Aires, but a good nights sleep required a great bed. The bed in Park Hyatt was very good, but Four Seasons is much better, but again people have different preferrences.
Argentinian food is famous around the world and I was very excited to experience their main restaurant which I had read a lot about. Duhau Restaurant was an amazing experience with excellent food, atmosphere and service. 6 course of the very highest quality. The servce level was in general very high everywhere in the world. The staff went out of their way everywhere and I can fully understand why this is voted one of the worlds very bests hotels. The butler service was great as well, but Alvear’s butler service is better and more personalized. The facilities were top class as well and the gym had the latest tegnology. The indoor swimming pool was very similar to Park Hyatt Shanghai and a fantastic place to relax. In city hotels internet is very important and the internet in Park Hyatt was some of the fastest I’ve seen in any hotel.
Overall a fantastic experience to the portfolio. One of the best hotels I experiences in South America if not the best. It works in all areas. My only complain would be that it’s too big, but that’s how the chain hotels it. The good thing is that this didn’t feel like a chain hotel, but as an independent masterpiece.
My opinion: Great+ experience.
