Onsite: Buenos Aires Resort Gears Up for Summer Season

NEW YORK CITY-Travel Agent was on site Tuesday for an event hosted by Faena Hotel + Universe to promote the hotel as well as Buenos Aires' peak season. Representatives were on hand at the Argentine Consulate on 56th street to discuss the luxury property's 100 rooms, its Experience Manager (a combination of both a concierge and butler) and its unique design created by Philippe Starck. It is in the El Porteño Building, a seven-storey historic grain building built in 1902 and sits on the heart of the Faena Art District. The summer season in Buenos Aires runs from September to March, so this is a great time for agents to book clients there. The property offers a 10 percent commission. Agents should call Christian Daghelinckx, sales and marketing director, at +54 11 4010 9160 or [email protected] Visit [http://www.faenahotelanduniverse.com]. (JP)
