Hotel Sussex Córdoba

Our History


Complejo Hotelero Sussex is a historic hotel located in the founding town of Córdoba, Argentina, unique in its excellent location and pioneer in services and facilities.

A family business founded by Don Tomas Alvarez Saavedra in Buenos Aires in 1945, originating in the traditional Florida and Tucumán building, where the Grand Hotel of the Argentine federation of commerce and service employees (FAECyS) is located today.

With great economic success of the model, in the decade of the 50 developed new hotels in the most important points of the country, creating the “First chain of international hotels in the interior of Argentina”.

Since 1950, the administration of the historic Hotel Plaza has been assumed and construction of the Sussex Córdoba Hotel, inaugurated in 1963, has begun. The hotel is a reference in services, quality and luxury with exclusive services: solarium with tennis court, pool, bar and sauna in 5th floor.


This hotel complex had at its opening several lounges, bar, pool, private garage, meeting rooms and the famous restaurant Maxim’s supported by a French chef who brought the level of quality to its highest expression.

Subsequently, hotels were set up in the provinces of La Rioja, Catamarca, Mendoza and San Juan. Some with casino and golf course, apart from services such as private garages, large pools, tennis courts, restaurant and bar, raising the level of hotel service in each city where it was installed; heritage that distinguishes our service currently.

This hotel complex expresses exteriorly the most exquisite and traditional French architecture, a facade of 1918 developed by the engineer-architect Carlos María Agote, graduated in Paris and a reference of French-style architecture in Argentina.


Today, that noble, warm and exclusive spirit is intact, receives visitors and holds events on request. However, strolling through the Maxim’s is equivalent to a walk along the Titanic’s deck: there you can still see a story that breathes on its walls and understand the magnitude of the city seen from its windows.

With the arrival of new technologies, the hotel and Maxim’s are currently in the process of restructuring to continue day by day improving our service, which continues to distinguish us over time.
