While visitors to Buenos Aires can count on all kinds of bargains around town thanks to the favorable dollar-to-peso exchange rate, the deals don't extend to lodgings. Luxury accommodations come at luxury prices, so count on dishing out your dollars if high-end is on your list. The good news, though, is that with your international bill comes international standards of quality and service - and the kind of big breakfasts that Argentinians aren't yet clued into. Luxury-seekers will mainly stick to the classic, brand-name hotels clustered in upscale Recoleta and Retiro, along with the contemporary luxury hotels in swanky Puerto Madero, all situated within a stone's throw from some of the finest dining, drinking, and shopping options in town, as well as carefully shielded from the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, one of the noisiest cities on earth. For those who aren't prepared to splurge the big bucks for a luxury hotel but like to soak in the elegant atmosphere regardless, drop in for a cocktail or lunch at the bars and restaurants inside Buenos Aires' finest hotels, many of which are independently managed and just about all are open to the public. Options are also available for those who seek the luxury experience but with a more eclectic touch. Francis Ford Coppola's own private residence is available for rent, given that the master of the silver screen himself isn't in town. The gorgeous, intimate home can be rented out in its entirety and comes equipped with Francis Ford's own staff, on hand to make your stay at the Jardin Escondido exactly what you imagined it could be. If just a room, not an entire house, is more your style, reserve one of the themed rooms, from Che Guevara to Evita to Jose de San Martin, at the intimate luxury boutique hotel Legado Mitico.
