The ultra-contemporary Hilton Buenos Aires Hotel‘s glass-enclosed, sky-high elevators literally top this friendly retreat’s list of attractive features, especially when riders ascend as they gaze down at the expansive atrium lobby below. This Hilton, in the exclusive Puerto Madero docklands district, boasts every amenity expected from one of the world’s legendary chains — plus the added convenience of extra-large dressing rooms (a real “must” in this gussied up city), an in-house wine bar (dispensing international and local labels), and two outstanding club floors (well worth the upgrade cost), including an extra special club lounge (pool table, free Internet, and al fresco seating). One major bonus for those who sleep in: Late checkouts tend to be granted, so be sure to ask before hitting the hay in the helpful Buenos Aires Hilton.
