The Buenos Aires Grand Hotel [2] may have just opened in October, but it is already gunning for LEED certification [3].  The modern hotel has all the comfort and amenities of a luxury hotel, with the eco-friendly and energy efficiency of a green hotel [4]. Located in the arty and historic neighborhood of Recoleta, the hotel provides sustainable accommodation in a cultural hotspot.

The neighborhood of Recoleta is one of Buenos Aires most affluent areas with a rich cultural center, attracting many tourists and locals alike to the museums [6], boutiques, restaurants and nightlife of the area. The classic lobby bar of the BA Grand is a seamless addition to the thriving character of the neighborhood. A full-floor glass curtain wall illuminates the lobby with natural light during the day, while showing off the chic crowd to passersby at night.

Guests can sip on cocktails in the lobby bar, or head up to the expansive roof terrace [7]. Flanked with a pool with a view, lounge areas, candles and lush gardens, the rooftop is a place to enjoy a panorama of Buenos Aires while feasting on fresh local fare from the restaurant, Club 31.  Pool parties, cocktail hours and hors d’oeuvres tastings make ample use of the busy outdoor space.

Each of the ninety guest suites is packed with cushy comforts of home as well as state of the art energy efficient technology. The Buenos Aires Grand Hotel is a new asset to sustainable travel, in the heart of metropolitan Buenos Aires [8].
