I was upgraded to a suite (room 2050), which had great views of the Plaza San Martin and the Retiro train station. The room itself was very well-appointed, with a comfortable couch and working desk with an HP OfficeJet fax/copier (and Internet connection, US$15/day). The personal butler service is a bit over-the-top, but the staff were gracious and ever willing to help.

There is no traditional check-in desk, rather four or five antique desks that line the marble entry with comfortable chairs. We were invited to sit down, have a drink and check-in. It was very efficient, yet at the same time we were able to make special requests and get to know the indespensable concierge.
We had three rooms on the 17th floor, overlooking the Plaza St Martin. Our wet bar was furnished with fine crystal. TVs had been pre-programmed with English language stations and CD players were included in each room. A comfortable sofa and lounge chair were perfect for relaxing. The bathroom was equally well appointed -- all marble, a separate tub and shower ROOM (maginificent!), and another room with toilet and bidet (check the water pressure before using!).
The hotel is attached to the Sheraton Hotel and Convention Center and gym and pool facilities are shared. Except for using these facilities, we did not venture into the rest of the hotel. The rooftop pool is very big and there is a snack bar with cabana service. The sundeck was quite popular when we were there. In inclimate weather there is also an indoor pool. The gym is very well-equipped and overlooks the pool. There are separate mens and womens spas with steam rooms, solariums and saunas. Quite nice indeed.
The hotel was a Conde Naste Traveller Gold List hotel in 2002 and a Reader's Choice Hotel in 2001. When we were there, Luis Miguel - the Mexican Ricky Martin - was our neighbor. His entire entourage was staying at the hotel while he played two concerts in BA.
Definitely utilize the concierge. They were full of wonderful ideas and were able to accommodate our requests without any problems. One day they arranged our ferry tickets to Uruguay. Each night they made our dinner reservations and recommendations. We tended to gather our group each evening in the lobby bar to enjoy cocktails and wonderful hor d'oeuvres. They could have been a meal unto themselves.
I am already planning a return trip to Buenos Aires and will definitely stay at the Park Towers again. It is centrally located -- 10 blocks to Plaza de Mayo -- and shops are nearby.
