Today I was invited as a member of the Central Council of Co-Owners of Retail Consortium Rosario, to attend the opening of the Apart Hotel. It took place at 19:30, and we had a warm reception, finding ourselves completely surrounded by vases filled with lilies. The catering service was first class, and the guests - among whom were several developers and owners of tourist agencies, not just in Rosario but also Buenos Aires and other cities in Argentina - had a good time mingling. It was an interesting evening as, despite its steady growth, the hotel sector in Rosario is still insufficient to support the large numbers of tourists.
This new hotel is part of a franchise that also operates in Buenos Aires. It has 10 fully equipped apartments, tastefully decorated. We had a look at each of them, and we found LCD 32" TVs, free WiFi, heaters and air conditioning. Every apartment had an identical, white kitchen with a coffee, microwave and refrigerator, with two hobs. There's a telephone in every apartment, as well as a solarium deck and grill. The bathrooms come complete with bathtub, hairdryer and toiletries. Each apartment also has a private safe, continental breakfast, and daily maid service. The concierge is happy to help you find information, purchase tickets for shows, or find catering, babysitters, food shopping, or any other special needs. It's in a quiet spot, just three blocks from Independence Park and about fifteen blocks from the Parana River waterfront. You can find public transport that will take you to every part of the city.
