High Cotton: Algodon Mansion in Buenos Aires

  1. 1. _vanguardia_High Cotton InvestBA has long rejected the misnomer of Buenos Aires as “the Paris of South America.” While architecture is certainly one similarity, the city’s pace, diversity, nightlife, grit and boundless creativity have always made New York a more logical comparison. How else can you explain the porteño propensity to christen BA barrios with names like Palermo SoHo and Queens? From film to fashion, design to dining, the BA love affair with New York is well-documented. Fitting then that a NYC developer would be the one to revolutionize the boutique hotel concept in BA. Welcome to the Algodon Mansion...
  2. 2. _vanguardia_After being named one of the worlds best boutique hotels and one of Travel+ Leisures Best Up-and-Coming Hotels of 2010, our expectations for theAlgodon Mansion were, understandably, very high. Upon entering the 1912belle époque mansion in Recoleta, however, it became clear the hotelsmany accolades are all well deserved. Owned by New Yorks DPECPartners and sister property to Mendozas Algodon Wine Estates andChampions Club, Algodon Mansion officially opened in September 2010after months of anticipation from travel buffs and professionals alike. The hotel, which originally served as a private residence, has just 10 suites,allowing for a level of personalized service not available at other BA hotels.For example, each suite has a private butler available 24 hours a day.Designed by world-renowned architect and designer Gerhard Heusch, theAlgodon Mansion exudes refined opulence. Ebony hardwood floors havebeen used throughout, a four-story waterfall cascades onto the glass ceilingof the lobby, and bathrooms are outfitted in French Limestone and equippedwith Aquamass Senseaurielle bathtubs from Belgium that incorporatechromotherapy, aromatherapy, musicotherapy and water movement for anunparalleled bathing experience.
  3. 3. _vanguardia_This sophisticated ambiance extends to the hotels intimate50-seat restaurant, Chez Nous, where guests are greeted bydeep red walls, an undulating gold leaf ceiling, and plushbanquettes. Executive Chef Antonio Soriano studied at LeCordon Bleu and honed his skills at the Michelin-starredrestaurants of the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris andHôtel du Crillon before taking the helm at Chez Nous.A French native who spent a large part of his childhood inBuenos Aires, Soriano and his team create seasonal menusof French-Argentine fusion cuisine that take diners on agastronomic tour of Argentina and recall the "link betweencultures that took place in the Buenos Aires of yesteryear."Ingredients are provided by the plantation at Algodon WineEstates in Mendoza, ensuring unsurpassed quality andfreshness, while the wine list features an impressiveselection of splendid Argentine varietals.
  4. 4. _vanguardia_The hotels rooftop veranda, with teak deck, swimming pool and small bar, overlooks the stately mansions and tree-lined streets ofRecoleta below. Just steps away from the veranda, the soon-to-open Le Spa, will offer an extensive treatment menu combining thelatest European technology with native Argentine ingredients. One such treatment, Vine Therapy, is a relaxation technique thatutilizes organic remedies from Algodon Wine Estates. Despite being open for less than a year, Algodon Mansion runs like a well-oiled machine. The hotel and its staff manage to takeguests back in time to the opulent Buenos Aires of the 1920s while providing service and amenities that are unsurpassed in the city.A chic oasis in Recoleta, Algodon has an atmosphere that engenders complete relaxation and indulgence.
