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 the remaining 142 are in the modern building.
This 120-square-metre residential suite evokes the glory days of Recoleta, with stately décor including original artwork and Persian rugs in the living and dining rooms. A graceful fireplace adds comfort to the master bedroom. This is a premium suite. See World of Hyatt program terms for upgrade eligibility.
Beautiful suite, isn’t it? The décor takes a contemporary approach to the 1930s concept of luxury and it works perfectly on that space.
This property is a coveted redemption on the World of Hyatt program. Standard rooms at this hotel start at about $550++/night, and as category 6, those rooms can be redeemed for 25,000 points. 2.2 cents/point is a good deal! The Alvear suite, in particular, sells for about $3,000++/night.
