My Secret Adventure (Part 5)

July 1, 2011

When I walked into my room at Hotel Moreno, any sign of jetlag immediately disappeared as I was completely enchanted by my surroundings.

I am typically drawn to boutique hotels with a shabby-chic, eclectic feel to them as they are graced with a human touch, but there is something about the clean, modern aesthetic of Hotel Moreno that is just so refreshing!  Oh and speaking of refreshing, any hotel that has a “coffee kit” in their rooms is instantly a winner in my book.

Of course the views from my windows were equally refreshing.

Unfortunately, American Airlines had misplaced my luggage.  However, in return for the inconvenience they gave me $150, which happen to go a long way in pesos.  Thus, before going to dinner, my best friend/co-conspirator in this secret trip, Julie, met me at a nearby mall to find the perfect dress for our date.


After the dress was successfully found at Trosman’s, we headed to one of our favorite restaurant’s in the city, Cafe San Juan.  Over a bottle of Malbec and pumpkin gnocchi, we went over every single detail of the following day.

Neither of us could hardly believe that we were in fact sitting in front of each other, nor about to pull off the biggest surprise in my husband’s life ever.  With our last glasses of wine, we made a toast to ‘enjoying the moment,’ because we knew this trip would pass by faster than we would like it to and there were a lot of beautiful and unforgettable moments that lay ahead.

If you should choose to stay at Hotel Moreno in the future, email General Manager Jeremías Meinardi ( and mention my name and/or my blog and a special discounted rate will be given.

    Looks like a perfect hotel! I’ll remember it when I’m lucky enough to get to BA again. And that pumpkin gnocchi is drool-worthy! I was so surprised about the amazing Italian food in BA…didn’t expect it!

      Sadly, I didn’t take a picture of my new dress, but yes it’s totally avant-garde! It’s called “the Japan dress.” It’s sooo fabulous!!! One day I’ll get a pic in it. Every time I visit BsAs I try to buy a new dress from there.
