The Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Hotel, in the upscale neighbourhood of Recoleta in Buenos Aires, Argentina, opened its doors in 2006 on a restored 1930s neoclassical palace, one of the few remaining places in the city representing the style and uses of the local aristocracy at the time. The palace takes its name from the Duhau family, prominent landowners who bought the terrains in the 1920s and in the early 1930s commissioned the design of a new residence inspired in the Chateau de Marais, near Paris.
Hyatt Hotels partnered with a local developer in 2002 to convert the abandoned (at the time) Palacio Duhau into a luxury hotel. Besides the restoration of the neoclassical palace, a second, modern building was added at the other side of the internal courtyard. The hotel offers 165 guestrooms and 38 suites. 23 rooms, including eight suites, are in the Palace and 142 in the modern building
Here is the description of the suite and some pictures from the hotel website:
This light-filled suite features a free-flowing living area and bedroom in 72 square metres, with a refreshing mix of classic and modern details. You’ll delight in the marvelous view of the Belle Époque palace and gardens.
And here is John’s video review and commentary on the Park Suite:
This property is one of the most coveted ones on the World of Hyatt inventory. Deluxe rooms sell for about $500/night and the Park Suite showed in the video sells from $750/night. As a Category 6, Deluxe rooms can be booked for 25,000 World of Hyatt points per night, redeeming at values over 2 cents per point, making it a good place for redemptions.
