It may not be the choice for rugged individualists, but the Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires has, for our money, the best standard double rooms in town. Not only are they large (a cat-swinging 430 square feet) and exceedingly comfortable, but they were also recently brought up to date with chic lemon and lime touches and mahogany furniture. The king-size beds are dressed in Egyptian cotton and goose down, the porcelain is Limoges, the silverware Ercuis, and there are little lifesaving touches—such as a PlayStation for the kids and a cell phone to take around town. Ask for a room facing the hotel's Mansión, a 1916 Belle Epoque stunner that houses seven suites done in period style: Carrara marble, Parisian chandeliers, inlaid oak floors. You can take the crown jewel here, the 2,000-square-foot Mozart Suite, or the entire mansion (for $13,000 a night). Most people, however, get a glimpse of the grandeur during the hotel's sprawling Sunday lunch buffet. It's practically an institution for the city's beaux mondes. From $310 to $3,500. At 1086 Posadas; 54-11/4321-1710; fourseasons.com/buenosaires.
