Spread over the foothills and high plains of the Andes Mountains, the northern Argentine city of Mendoza is a favorite with tourists of both the active and foodie varieties, thanks to its easy access to hiking, horseback riding and skiing, plus some of the best vineyards in the country. In a central location on Plaza de la Independencia, the Park Hyatt is arguably the smartest hotel in town, and a go-to base for active (often American) travelers.
Bed and Bath
While the beautifully restored white façade is 19th-century Spanish Colonial to a tee, the interiors are strictly contemporary. Guestrooms are done up with crisp-sheeted platform beds (Kings or Twins), curved glass desks and modern bathrooms decked out with lots of glass and mirror. Bath and body products come courtesy of the hotel’s Kaua Club and Spa, where the treatments incorporate such local ingredients as wine, grapes and olives.
Just off the main entrance, Bistro M serves a tasty breakfast buffet from its open kitchen, while Las Terraza café is popular for alfresco drinks and snacks. The two-story reception atrium has a centerpiece glass wall overlooking the furnished courtyard of the hotel’s traditional Argentine grill restaurant, Q. (You’ll want at least two orders of the empanadas here.) At the very back of the ground-floor space, a door leads to the Regency Casino Mendoza, where you can try your luck at the slots or 22 gaming tables until 6 in the morning. Mendoza’s sunny, dry weather makes the small outdoor pool a popular place, and you can work off all the gourmet indulgences in the decent gym, which looks out at the pedestrians strolling Avenue Sarmiento.
How to Get There
Loved the Mendoza wine country! Great hotel with great staff and a lot of English speakers. Yummy empandas and great wine. Love the outdoor bar and hung out there a lot. We will be back! Love all of Argentina but this area was a gem.
My wife and I stayed at Park Hyatt Mendoza for 8 nights and had a great time. The hotel is beautiful and well located across the street from Independence Plaza. It is in walking distance of the best areas of Mendoza.
We had a corner suite which was very spacious. The living area of the suite had 2 sofas, side chair, a dining table with seating for 6, a desk, and a toilet and bidet. The bedroom had a king bed, lounge chair and ottoman. The bathroom had a toilet, bidet, shower and the closet. The closet was small -- they should have designed a walk in closet and taken space from the living area. Housekeeping was excellent and the suite was kept in great condition. My only complaint is that they should have a USB port on or near the nightstands in the bedroom.
We had free breakfast every morning as a globalist member. Breakfast was tasty and there was a good selection of hot dishes, cold dishes and baked goods on the buffet.
My only complaint for the hotel was check in as it took me a long time to check in. There should be a separate area for check in by elite members. There was no line management -- there should have been a line set up or hotel personnel directing the line to check in.
Shout out to Lucas Gimenez, manager of the hotel -- he went the extra mile to make our stay great. He took the time to introduce himself to us at check in and welcome us to the hotel. He later granted us an extended check out time so that we could stay in our suite until we had to leave for the airport (our flight was schedule to leave at 2AM). Greatly appreciated.
A wonderful location and wonderful hotel!!!! A single note of caution however; you might want to request a room that DOESN’T overlook the courtyard. It is a great space for big events, but the rooms overlooking it participate whether they wish to or not. That said, the staff willingly, cheerfully, and helpfully changed our room so that we DIDN’T overlook(or more to the point, overhear)their Octoberfest. Our room was very comfortable and impeccably clean. Breakfast was good and the service delightful. And the location? Perfection! Walking distance to some terrific restaurants and facing a beautiful plaza. I must admit that the photo of the hotel’s terrace convinced me to book there. It did not disappoint, and I’d do so again in a heartbeat! Hopefully sooner rather than later! Thanks!
