Marriott International Announces the Opening of Buenos Aires Marriott Hotel

Marriott International announced today the long-awaited opening of the Buenos Aires Marriott Hotel. Previously operating as the Hotel Panamericano Buenos Aires, the property underwent an extensive conversion to meet Marriott's elevated quality standards. Located in the heart of the city, with convenient access to must-see attractions such as the Teatro Colón, the Obelisk and the Palace of Justice, the hotel is well positioned to become a favorite among business and leisure travelers visiting this South American destination.

'We are thrilled to work with Gotel Hotel Management and bring the Marriott Hotels brand back to Argentina after so many years,' said Laurent de Kousemaeker, Marriott International Chief Development Officer, Caribbean and Latin America. 'This opening marks the beginning of a new stage for Marriott International in this coveted destination where the European style is deeply intertwined with the Latin American culture.'

The Buenos Aires Marriott Hotel will be managed by Gotel Hotel Management, a company belonging to Grupo Hoteles Panamericano, which was created to strategically collaborate in the expansion of other Marriott brands in the Southern Cone and operate its own, as well as third-party hotels.

Offering a unique 360° panoramic view of some of the city's most emblematic neighborhoods, such as Recoleta, Puerto Madero and San Telmo, the property features an eclectic porteño design, including two towers inspired by the classic French-influenced architecture that still prevails in the city today.

In keeping with the Marriott Hotels brand's ethos to create spaces that inspire and nurture guests' creativity, each room is thoughtfully designed to create a balance of functionality, style and comfort.

The rooms feature creative work spaces and state-of-the-art amenities such as high-speed Wi-Fi, HDTV and the exclusive Mobile Check-In, Mobile Check-out service, which minimizes person-to-person interaction during waiting time; Mobile Key, where cell phones will serve as access keys; Mobile Chat and Mobile Guest, from which services can be managed and requests addressed before, during and after the stay.

Gastronomic offerings available for our guests include the Lobby Bar located on the first floor, La Luciernaga restaurant that offers Argentine and Mediterranean cuisine with an a la carte menu and Celtic Pub, an Irish bar with sophisticated decor that offers quick meals and delicious cocktails.

Among other amenities of the property, there is 'Nivel 23 Club & Spa,' a 24-hour gym with the latest equipment and an incredible panoramic view of the city. The MClub, reserved exclusively for Marriott Bonvoy members, is known for its warmth and its impressive backdrop that overlooks the emblematic 9 de Julio Avenue.

'We are proud to be working with Marriott International in the development and management of all its brands as a Strategic Partner in the Southern Cone,' said Marcelo Ubach, CEO of Grupo Hoteles Panamericano.
