Puerto Madero Hilton: A Trendy Area In Buenos Aires

This is the fourth time we've stayed at this property. We enjoy the Puerto Madero district.

We'd fallen in love with this hotel on our first stay in 2009, and were disappointed to see a decline in standards in 2010, perhaps caused in part by ongoing renovation of the Executive Lounge. We were delighted to find out that the hotel is back up to the level that we enjoyed on our first visit.

As we sat in the lounge, we could see Casa Rosada, the official presidential palace. We again saw the president's helicopter landing, as we have on previous visits.

After a glass of wine in the Lounge, we enjoyed wandering around the Puerto Madero neighborhood in the twilight, enjoying the views and the mood.

For dinner we again chose El Potrillo, the restaurant next door to the more famous Las Lilas.

We shared pork ribs and beef ribs. Argentina is a carnivorous place and we enjoyed ourselves.
