What’s New Buenos Aires? (part 1)

They had me at the pink couch. Cliché for a gay boy, but true. Buenos Aires’ new Alvear Art Hotel, opened in May 2013, is elegantly decorated in a comfortably sophisticated style—think Eva Peron by way of Park Avenue. And oh, that couch in the lobby. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to judge hotels not on the hip-urban-cool-hot-list-hipness-factor and more on the “would I want to live here” quotient. In the case of the Alvear Art Hotel, sister property to the city’s storied Alvear Palace, the answer is a definite “yes.”
