After a long-haul flight, it feels so nice to be in luxury, which is what this hotel offers. Perfect check in, with early AM arrival, and remarkable rooms where one feels like they have "come a long way and can see and experience something new" while having that home-like (ok, better than home-like) comfort.
The beds are huge and comfortable, and Hermes bath products rule (who knew Hermes made Bath Products?!).
There is a great gym, and even better "foot bath" where you walk across stones in super hot water then super cold water then have a hot tub. This made the perfect transition from day time (major walk, 2 museums, Eva Peron's grave) to evening for a wonderful dinner completely refreshed after all of the travel and visits.
My only regret is that my luggage did not contain 2 items that needed "pressing" (this is comped). Alas, I travel with "wash & wear" but maybe next time.....
This hotel is really special, and I would definitely stay here again.
