While on a tour around South America, our group spent a restful night at the Plaza Hotel. We were between 2 really great boutique hotels in Chile and Isla del Sol, but this one stood up in comfort and dramatic beauty to both. First of all, it was great to note that this hotel seemed to be the exact center of town. Although we didn't spend much time in La Paz, the surroundings were very attractive. The room was a nice size, comfortable and had a good view (we were on the 6th floor). There was the liveliness of noise and activity from the city, but it did not impose upon the serenity of the room.
We dined at the penthouse restaurant with the lights of La Paz surrounding us in all directions. As a difficult vegetarian I was well accomodated with one of the best meals on the trip. This quickly dispelled my regret at not having investigated the other restaurants right outside the door. The next morning we had a breakfast buffet (they set it out early for our early departure) that included a variety of things I had not yet tasted.
It was pleasant to be so central, so connected and well cared for. The hotel doesn't have the newest furnishings, but it does have the professional great hotel ambiance that one finds in a nice hotel in NYC. We were not the easiest bunch, as we had some altitude sickness amongst us, and we were a bit ragged by then. But it was the kind of place that lets you dine in their good restaurant with not even a blush dressed in your alpaca sweater adorned with llamas and jeans, although a skirt and nice top would fit in better.
As an ambassador for La Paz, the Plaza does the job nicely and humbly. It carries the sweet warmth of the City well and makes me want to come back to Bolivia. Thank you, Plaza.
