After a long summer of traveling to warm weather places including Bora Bora Intercontinental (working on getting pictures up), St Regis & Ritz Carlton Puerto Rico (Also working on getting these pictures up) and a quick hop over to Nassau before Hurricane Irene, we decided to try a place with mild weather this time of year. We ended up with a trip to Buenos Aires.
Our itenerary has us flying American Airlines in First Class. We used 240,000 British Airways points for two tickets and paid $173 for taxes and fees.
There are a number of hotels we would have liked to stay in, and we decided on the Park Hyatt Palacio Duhau by using 72,000 Hyatt points. As a diamond member we are hoping for an upgrade to a suite and will receive free breakfast every morning. We also considered the Park Tower, a luxury collection hotel from SPG, but the hotel doesn’t qualify for the SPG Free Resort Promotion (which I have 3 free nights that will go unused at this point). I hear this hotel is as good or better than the Park Hyatt DC or Park Hyatt Paris (see Park Hyatt Paris trip report here).
This is our first trip to Argentina and we are looking forward to experiencing all the city has to offer. We are looking into wine tastings, great food, cooking classes, tours of the city and other activities. If you have any great restaurant recommendations or activities I’d appreciate any information you can share in the comment section.
I”ll try to get the pictures up with a report as soon as I return.
