This post will review the Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt Buenos Aires. Our stay at the Park Hyatt was part of a trip to Buenos Aires as part of our “Year of the B” travel theme. We used 72,000 Hyatt points for a 4 night award stay at the Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt Buenos Aires. I was a Hyatt Diamond member at the time of the reservation.

Arrival

We arranged a driver through the Park Hyatt to pick us up from the airport and take us directly to the Park Hyatt. A nice man was waiting outside of baggage claim for us with a sign that read “Mr Weekly Flyer”. Our drive was about 45 minutes with no traffic. Upon entering the car he offered us each a box with a small gift inside. A box with small chocolates and mints were a nice touch.

Hotel

The driver asked if we would like to arrive at the Palace side of the hotel and we agreed. We passed the modern entrance and looped around to enter via the Palace. Our bags were taken from the car and we were escorted to the front desk for check in. We were offered early check in and a choice for an upgraded room. We were offered a Palace suite or a high floor corner suite in the modern building. We chose the modern building suite that had a nice view of the city and Vatican embassy next door.

After we selected our room the young lady offered us a tour of the hotel. We walked through the Palace sections including the Oak Bar and Los Salones del Piano Nobile. Later in our stay we ate a mini-cheese burger snack at the Oak Bar and had breakfast at the Los Salones del Piano Nobile.

Then went downstairs to see the Vinoteca and Duhau restaurant. During our stay we had a wine tasting at the Vinoteca and enjoyed dinner at the Duhau restaurant one evening.

After a quick tour of the Palace we went back up a spiral stair case and across the lawn to the modern building. In the modern building we were shown the art gallery, Gioia restaurant, and the spa. During our stay there was a black tie cocktail party in the art gallery. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner at the Gioia restaurant during our stay.

The hotel is true luxury and the service was exceptional throughout our stay. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable throughout our stay.

Room

As a Diamond member we upgraded to a very nice suite with a great view. It was perfect for our 4 night stay. A welcome amenity was waiting in our room. Fresh grapes and a bottle of Argentine wine were great companions for the early afternoon before we headed out to see the nearby area. The suite had an entrance foyer, large living room, hallway with half bath, nicely appointed bathroom, and large bedroom with a good view.

The room was nicely furnished with the typical modern Park Hyatt feel, which we love. The bed was very comfy and the soaking tub was great after a long day walking the city. We enjoyed room service breakfast one day in the living room. I’ll provide a detailed review of the Diamond breakfast options in my next post.

  1. If you don’t mind sharing, how much was it for the Park Hyatt arranged transportation from the airport to the hotel? I’ll be there in April and wanted to know if it was worth it. Thanks!

  2. Hi LXJenkins – The Mercedes reserved the hotel was $165 USD. This is likely much more than taxi or shuttle transportation but we enjoyed it. It was a seamless transition from baggage claim (we didn’t check bags) to the car to the hotel and we earned Hyatt points since it was charged directly to the hotel. The driver was very friendly, spoke good English and shared information about Buenos Aires the entire ride to the Hyatt. We found value and would do it again but YMMV.
