Concierge.com's insider take:
Stellar service is the draw at the 144-room Sofitel Buenos Airesfor instance, the concierge once sourced a pedigreed dog at short notice for one demanding guestbut comfort comes in a close second. A 1928 Art Deco tower, flanked by two neoclassical wings, houses 144 cleanly styled rooms decorated with pastel tones, leather furniture, and black-and-white photographs of Paris. Fresh flowers in each bathroom complement the subtle use of aromatherapy scents. The standard suites are spacious enough, but the presidential suite encompasses the entire 17th floor, complete with Indochinese decor and a view stretching across the Río de la Plata to Uruguay. Sip on a well-mixed martini in Café Arroyo, sample French gastronomy in the Le Sud restaurant, or simply curl up with a book in La Bibliotèque, a cozy nook draped with velvet.
