725 Continental Hotel

725 Avenida Roque Saenz Peña
Buenos Aires , Argentina
(54-11) 4131-8000

On one of B.A.’s busiest streets, this beautiful 1927 Art Deco hexagonal building could stand in for a Design Within Reach showroom, complete with Eames, Mies van der Rohe, and Le Corbusier pieces scattered about. The 192 rooms have been updated with hardwood floors, mood lighting, flat-screen TV’s, and floor-to-ceiling silk curtains. Bathrooms are designed using travertine or Carrara marble and Philippe Starck fittings. Because of the hotel’s proximity to the theater district, its sleek rooftop bar, with an outdoor heated swimming pool, has become a popular spot for martini lunches and pre-show cocktails.
