The Hilton Buenos Aires has unveiled its redesigned lobby as well as its remodeled and new f&b outlets.
The 417-room property opened in 2000. It features a 72,290-square-foot convention center, rooftop pool, and state-of-the-art fitness center.
The star of the renovation, which was led by local architecture and interior design firm Estudio Caparra Entelman, is the modernized glass atrium lobby. The space now features:
- artwork by renowned artist Edgardo Madanes, including five wooden-wicker art pieces suspended from the ceiling, inspired by the history of the Puerto Madero district;
- a new front desk with leather wraparound panel and individual counters for a more personalized check-in/check-out experience and concierge consultations;
- and six stained wooden and leather gazebos—intimate common spaces for guests to meet.
On the f&b front, the hotel has enhanced the entrance to its El Faro Restaurant with stained wood beams that complement the gazebos in the lobby. It has also added an on-the-go eatery, Croûtons Grab ‘n’ Go, and a new lobby bar. The latter, Alberto’s Lobby Bar, is located in the lobby’s center island. Notable design elements include the use of exotic Rosso Luana marble on the bar proper and an illuminated porch.
Hilton Buenos Aires is located in the riverside Puerto Madero district. Previously a forgotten port, Puerto Madero is now considered a modern waterfront neighborhood. Known for its vanguard architectural trends, the area has transitioned from an abandoned industrial port to a high-rise lifestyle destination, which includes a 864-acre ecological reserve with trails that line the Rio de la Plata riverbank.
