"Famous for its culture, customs, geography and cuisines, Argentina continues to be a favorite destination for global travelers and a key market for Wyndham Hotel Group,” said Paulo Pena, president and managing director for Wyndham Hotel Group in Latin America and the Caribbean. “Adding our world-renowned upscale brand to the country complements our existing portfolio of 34 hotels, which not only includes the Ramada and TRYP by Wyndham brands, but also the largest network of Howard Johnson hotels in Latin America, and the award-winning global Wyndham Rewards loyalty program. ”
Located across from Nordelta Bay in Tigre, Wyndham Nordelta Tigre Buenos Aires offers spectacular views from its modern six-story building. The hotel is the only in the city accessible by land and river and is just 60 km away from Buenos Aires’ Ezeiza International Airport, 35 km from the Buenos Aires city center, and 15 km from the Tigre’s train station.
The hotel’s full-service spa and health, beauty and wellness center offers unparalleled views of Nordelta Bay. Guests can recharge with massages and hydration services followed by time in the relaxation room, the 24-hour fitness center, the dry and wet sauna, or simply soaking it all in on the terrace with its sun-drenched solarium.
The hotel’s seven meeting rooms accommodate up to 250 people for business or social events. Its restaurant, Root, specializes in international cuisine and its B76 Lounge Bar on the hotel’s terrace offers guests the opportunity to savor a bite to eat and a delicious cocktail. Each room offers free Wi-Fi, LED cable TV, a safe box, a minibar, a Jacuzzi and a complimentary newspaper.
