Four Seasons

Hotel in Recoleta & Barrio Norte

No surprise here – the Four Seasons offers all the perks that define a five-star hotel, such as free-standing bathtubs facing TVs hidden in the bathroom mirror. Rooms are spacious with contemporary furnishings and views of Av 9 de Julio; the finest suites are located in an old mansion next door (go for the presidential – it's US$10,000 per night).

There's also a gorgeous spa, an outdoor heated swimming pool and a top-notch restaurant.
