The Claridge was excellent value for the money. The location was excellent, right next to calle Florida (great shopping opportunities) and within walking distance of almost all attractions. We were also able to walk to the port to take the Buquebus to Colonia in Uruguay, which I highly recommend doing as a day trip. The facilities were also excellent. The restaurant serves great food and most nights there was some kind of event going on free for guests (live jazz, opera, theater, etc.). Breakfast was also complete with cereal, pastries, toast, fresh fruit (a treat!), meat, eggs, etc. The spa and outdoor pool were also a great addition. We swam in the heated pool at night, very relaxing!! The gym facilities were also great with weights and machines. Spa treatments include massage, facials, etc. The service was also superb. The staff was always willing to help and always courteous.
