Hotel Review: Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel and Convention Center

There are 2 Sheraton Hotels in Buenos Aires. the other being the Sheraton Libertador.  Both hotels are fairly close to one another.  I opted for this location based on overall reviews and based on my intended itinerary.  One of my days was spent taking a ferry across the Rio de la Plata to visit Uruguay and this location was fairly convenient to the ferry terminal.  As for exploring B.A. itself, i was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go.  It is in a nice, safe and business oriented neighborhood.  There were no issues with outside noise coming into the room.

The hotel was very well maintained and the lobby was nicely appointed with marble floors and a generally upscale vibe.  The Sheraton shares a lobby with the Park Tower, another SPG property.  Given its city center location, where space is generally limited, i was pleased to find a large swimming pool and tennis courts.

The room was well appointed and was more elegantly appointed than most Sheratons stateside. The room was average sized.  The bathroom came complete with a bidet.  As an SPG Gold member we were upgraded to a room which included free breakfast and afternoon hors d'oeuvres   I would estimate the value of breakfast to be about 25$ per person and the afternoon snacks at about 10$ person.

Cost: SPG category 4 (10,000 points) or around $175 a night

Overall Impression:
Nice, well appointed hotel close to all the action in Buenos Aires.  I was upgraded as an SPG gold member.  This upgrade included breakfast and afternoon hors d'oeuvres in the Park Tower next door.  I think if i were to do this trip again and use points, I would opt for the Park Tower next door which is 12,000 points.  From walking through the Park tower lobby and our breakfast experience there, I think it would be more than worth the extra 2000 points a night.

Buenos Aires is an amazing city, stay tuned for my full trip report.
