Buenos Aires Marriott Hotel starts welcoming guests [Construction Report]
This striking 298-room scheme, run by Gotel Hotel Management, is Argentina’s first Marriott Hotels property since 2013.
Newly converted from its previous incarnation as Hotel Panamericano Buenos Aires, Marriott’s latest outpost boasts a prominent position on the city’s iconic 9 de Julio Avenue. We find out more.
Strategic expansion for Marriott
Located on the major thoroughfare named after Argentina’s Independence Day, Buenos Aires Marriott Hotel provides a place for guests to stay at the heart of the capital with easy access to famous sites such as the Obelisk, Teatro Colón and the Palace of Justice. This setting makes the hotel well-suited to accommodating both business and leisure travellers in equal measure.
The new hotel is being managed by Gore Hotel Management, a business belonging to Grupo Hoteles Panamericano that was established to collaborate on the expansion of Marriott brands in the Southern Cone while operating its own, as well as third-party, hotels.
“We are thrilled to work with Gore Hotel Management and bring the Marriott Hotels brand back to Argentina after so many years,” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, chief executive officer for Marriott International in the 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.”
“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,” added Marcelo Ubach, CEO of Grupo Hoteles Panamericano.
