BUENOS AIRES—Worldhotels added the Savoy Hotel Buenos Aires to its Deluxe Collection of hotels.
The 164-room property was built in 1910 as the city’s first luxury hotel in the downtown area and is now owned by Buenos Aires-based Fragral S.A.
Guestrooms and suites all feature a large desk area, complimentary Internet access and minibars. The top floor includes 30 executive-level rooms with access to VIP services, views of the city and a private lounge.
There also is a fitness center. Other hotel amenities include complimentary breakfast, on-site car-rental desk and meeting/conference space supported by a full-service business center.
Fine dining is available in Las Manzanas Restaurant, which features a wide variety of Mediterranean and Argentinean dishes. Drinks and hot beverages may be ordered at the Imperio lobby bar.
“The Savoy Hotel is not only a spectacular property, it is ideally located near important business and entertainment centers,” said Tom Griffiths, VP/The Americas for Worldhotels. “We believe this high-visibility hotel will generate regional interest and growth opportunities for our hotel group....”
Mariano Barbeito serves as the hotel's general manager .
The most recent NYU Conference, earlier this month proved, once and for all, that the lodging industry has finally turned the corner and happy days are, indeed, here again. While the economists and pundits all provided plenty of anecdotal evidence to bear that out in terms of supply and demand ratios, RevPAR projections, asset values and all the other metrics, that’s not what has me convinced.
