The original hotel, designed by Alejandro Bustillo and made almost entirely of wood, was destroyed by fire soon after its completion in 1939. A year later Bustillo built a new hotel out of reinforced concrete and stone which was renovated in 1993. In 1999 the hotel became a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, and has won many important prizes since it re-opening in 1993.
The hotel is the site of the yearly classical music festival, Semana Musical Llao Llao. Llao Llao was named "The Best Hotel and Resort in the Argentine Hinterland" in 1999.
