The Panamericano Hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina, today became the newest affiliate of the Worldhotels Deluxe Collection of global luxury independent hotels. Located in the heart of this vibrant city, Panamericano is the fourth Worldhotels affiliate in this South American destination.
“This is an outstanding luxury hotel in a superb location,” said Tom Griffiths, vice president, Worldhotels-The Americas. “It’s the perfect place to explore and experience all that this great city has to offer.”
Located on 9 de Julio Ave., Panamericano is just off of Plaza de Republica, facing the Obelisk and the world-renowned Colón Opera House, in the heart of Buenos Aires’ financial district. The nearby Puerto Madero barrio features the city’s latest architectural trends and restaurants. Its popular destinations include the stunning Puente de la Mujer (Women’s Bridge) by famed Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. Other nearby landmarks include La Bombonera soccer stadium, Caminito street museum, colonial era San Telmo and many other attractions.
Room amenities include marble bathrooms, Italian design furnishings, wireless Internet access, mini bar and LCD televisions. Upper floors feature leather upholstery and a refined neoclassic style, and for the ultimate in luxury: a 220 square meter (720 sq. ft.) penthouse with a mahogany staircase and stunning views of the surrounding cityscape. Nivel 23 Club and Spa features a variety of massage therapies, facial therapies, a state-of-the-art fitness center and a snack bar. The Green Club, Latin America's first urban golf center, is an indoor golf range that features the best golf simulators in the world.
The hotel’s flagship restaurant, the iconic Tomo 1, is newly renovated and continues to offer its highly awarded Argentinean high cuisine and a wine cellar with 1,200 bottles on display. Other restaurant options include the La Luciérnaga, Celtic Pub and La Cava wine cellar. The hotel offers a variety of meeting spaces from intimate to ballroom size.
Silvana Relats, general director of Panamericano, added, “We are delighted to join the Deluxe Collection and showcase all that we have to offer to Worldhotels’ global clientele, as well as provide an even higher level of service and convenience to our guests.”
