Esplendor / Superior

Perched on a hill overlooking the town, this polished and modern hotel offers a fantastic panoramic view of the glacier-fed Argentino Lake and quick access to restaurants and boutique shopping as long as you're okay walking up-hill. Its 57 cozy rooms provide a warm retreat from the Patagonian winds with rich colors and textures from the region, some with mountain or lake views. Upgraded suites provide more space and oversized soaking tubs quite desirable after a good day's hike.
