The Best Hotels in the Top 10 Latin American Cities

What’s your favorite hotel in Latin America? For the second year in a row, I recently managed the annual “Best of Travel” issue for Latin Trade, the largest magazine and Website for people who do business in Latin America. It’s always educational to come up with a list of the best possible travel experiences from Mexico to Argentina and Chile, drawing not only on my own personal travels but also lots of research and interviews. 

Putting together a list of the best hotels in Latin America can be surprising. In some Latin American cities, there are lots of stylish boutique-style properties. In others, international chains rule the roost (and interestingly, in Caracas, Venezuela, not a single hotel qualified for our “most improved hotel” award).

This year, we chose the best hotels in the 10 most importance cities in Latin America for business travelers. You can see full explanations of why these hotels were winners — as well as our winners for best airlines, airports, rental car companies and top convention spaces — by visiting the Best of Travel issue of Latin Trade Magazine. But here’s the list to get you started:
