Escape the city to the leafy historic suburb of San Isidro and this elegant boutique hotel in a refurbished neoclassical nineteenth-century palace about an hour from the center of BA and just off the shore of the Rio de la Plata. From the grand colonnade and wrought iron gates to the stained glass windows and expansive breakfast buffet, the vibe is aristocratic countryside grandeur. There are also great boutiques and restaurants nearby.
