We stayed here for 4 nights in May 2013. The hotel is approximately an hour from the EZE airport. We were able to pay a cab drive in USD in order to avoid the bad exchange rate by ATM or currency exchange. We later got "blue pesos" for people currency on Florida Avenue. You are a little nervous at first but this is very common. The exchange rates was 5.3 at a bank and 8.3 from a guy selling currency on the street.
Now, back to the hotel.. You can tell this was a very nice hotel when it was built. It was built like to the quality of a St. Regis or a Ritz. However, you can see the age and neglect of the property on the furniture in the common areas as well as the room.
As a SPG Platinum we had no problem checking in at 9AM and being upgraded to a corner suite. The suite is large and has great views. 1.5 baths is also nice when traveling with someone.
The hotel offers full turndown service and put wine and a small appetizer or dessert tray in our room each day.
A pool with steam and sauna in the Sheraton is accessible to guests. The gym is probably the largest and nicest gym I've found in a hotel. However, the steam/sauna area made it apparent they sell memberships to locals and the older men in search of the company of other men were constantly trolling the steam/sauna area which made it a little seedy.
The Concierge service and the bellman service at the hotel was terrible. They would just motion us to get our own cab and the Concierge would offer dinner recommendations but would often be away for over an hour at a time. When asked if the famous Sunday Flea Market was worth it and would possible have local art he simply said no, do not go. Thankfully, we went anyway. It was a highlight of our trip. Lots to see, buy and great energy.
Basically, the hotel is a good value. It has good bones but is in need of some TLC as it is starting to wear. The concierge staff should be trained again in what they are there to do.
