Intergroup Companies Project
2016 Forbes Travel Guide Star Award Winner
February 22, 2016 - Tandy O. Lofland, founder and CEO of the Intergroup Companies, announced that Forbes Travel Guide has again designated the Four Seasons Hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina as one of the world’s top hotels and resorts. Ratings are based on a list of over 500 stringent criteria to determine the Star Rating and establish a global benchmark for luxury travel.
Co-developed by Houston-based Intergroup Development as one of the world’s first Park Hyatt Hotels and later converted to a Four Seasons Hotel, the 165-room hotel recently received a $50 million renovation.
Blending the contemporary and traditional, the hotel occupies both a modern tower and an early-20th Century Belle Époque mansion connected to the main building through the outdoor pool and terrace. Opulent and classically French, the mansion suites are often where heads of state and celebrities choose to stay (such as Madonna while filming Evita) and where guests can take in the mansion’s grand historical touches. The restaurants Elena and Nuestro Secreto are regarded as among the best in a city known for its great dining experiences and The Cielo Spa is the top hotel spa in Argentina. Its location in the swank Recoleta district attracts both neighbors and affluent travelers seeking a world-class hotel with both style and classic bespoke services and amenities.
For over 30 years Intergroup has developed or undertaken transactions for hundreds of projects and properties worth billions of dollars in the United States, Latin America, Caribbean, and Europe with an emphasis on middle-market, upscale, and luxury hotels, resorts, and mixed-use developments involving such companies as Four Seasons, Hilton, Marriott, Starwood, Hyatt, InterContinental Hotel Group, Carlson, Accor, Barceló, and others. Intergroup represents or has relationships with many owners, domestic and international investors, private equity firms, operators, and REITs. Intergroup is actively involved in acquisitions, dispositions, equity sourcing, redevelopments, new developments, recapitalizations, partnership formations, and advisory assignments in many U.S. markets and major destinations as well as in select foreign locations.
