This property is part of the OWN Hotels Group, known for its sophisticated modern design, personal service, and state-of-the-art technology that enhances the guest experience.
"Located in one of the most desirable areas of the city just blocks from the waterfront, this boutique hotel will offer our members the ideal base from which to enjoy the many nearby attractions," said Marcos Agostini, Interval's senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Latin America.
