Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires Announces $40 Million Renovation

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Buenos Aires, Argentina – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires is unveiling the first phase of a USD 40 million renovation with the debut of redecorated rooms, suites and lobby, freshly landscaped grounds, and three new dining and drinking concepts that are quickly becoming the city’s newest hot spots for socializing. The final phase of the renovation, a refurbishment of the hotel’s meetings spaces, is set to be complete later this year.

“Every aspect of our guests’ stay has been considered as part of the planning for this ambitious renovations project,” says Rebeca Selley, general manager of the Hotel, who was recently named one of just five Hotelier of the Year finalists in the world by Virtuoso. “From stunning new works by local artists to beautifully decorated guest rooms, delicious new menus and a unique new outdoor event and dining venue, porteños and visitors alike will be inspired by the passion of the city and the corazón of Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires.”

Operating as a hotel since 1992 with the addition of a modern, 12-story tower to the historic 1920 La Mansión, Four Seasons has managed the hotel since 2001. The current renovation is being led by WA International (lobby and rooms), EDG (food and beverage venues) and 40NORTH (landscaping and garden design).

Featuring five sculptural cantering horses outside the property’s exterior, a sense of movement and passion has been created by local artist Vivienne Duchini. Formal topiary speaks to the city’s European sophistication, while jasmine vines on the hotel’s façade soften the look. Terraces adjacent to the hotel’s new dining spaces invite guests to come in from the street.

The re-imagined lobby features timeless interior design as a stage for modern energy. Vertical design elements extending from the main entrance area up past the balcony level give the impression of a soaring space. Exotic polished Makassar ebony reflects the city’s cosmopolitan flavor, while patterns on large silver screens are inspired by the movements of the Argentine tango.

Several columns were removed to open up the space, welcoming guests to new reception desks decorated with South American semi-precious stones in shades of vivid blue. Caballos Libres, or “free horses,” a painting by renowned Argentine artist Alejandro Moy, portrays horses in full gallop, another reference to the country’s favorite sport of polo.

Cushioned by a hand-tufted custom made carpet, lit by sculptural lighting fixtures of blown glass overhead and perfumed by the distinctive Bayo scent created by Fueguia 1833 exclusively for the hotel, it’s a promising start to a stay at Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires.
