Alex, a lot depends on your budget. If you have alloted enough given your age range Palermo may be a perfect fit. Problem is that Palermo may have a few areas that are trendy and more expensive. Hotels in Palermo Soho, Hollywood, etc. could be boutique ones that charge a premium. It might be worth if you can afford it.
Bear in mind that traditional Palermo, Plaza San Martin, Barrio Norte and Recoleta are very close to each other. I'd say 15 minutes drive in non-rush hours. So it may not matter much. For a fair price, I would look into traditional Palermo and none of the newer and more sophisticated areas (which are also the ones that are further away). The part of Palermo neighboring Barrio Norte.

Last time I was in BsAs I stayed at the Moreno. Loved the big rooms and the service.

Palermo is more residential and there's the zoo, but there's more action in Recoleta and Bario Norte. We stayed at the Howard Johnson's in Recoleta and it was very nice, quiet street and costs about $135 USD. We then stayed at the heart of Bario Norte at the Wilton Hotel, not as nice but certainly acceptable and good traditional Argentine breakfast for about $67 USD. Both had english speaking staff which was important to my wife. From either hotel, you can be at the heart of Recoleta with just a short 10 minute walk.
If money is no object, and that's a phrase that's easier to say than to do, stay at the Alvear Palace, you will not be dissapointed.
If you like new & modern city, stay in Puerto Madero neighborhood. Very modern high rise condos. The hotel that comes to mind is the Hilton, but I'm sure there's others. This is directly across the river from downtown (Florida St.) so you are still close to things. If you like a more lively area, Florida St is very hectic and busy, too busy for older folks like me, but you may like it.

Have a look at Rooneys Boutique
Several friends and family of mine have stayed there and enjoyed it.
I met the owner a few times when I was living in BA and always try to push his place when the chance turns up.They have loads of extra bits going on there and can give you the personal touch.Info on shows,tours etc.The owner is Irish and his wife Argentine so English is no problem
Like i said I've had my closest friends stay there.
Best of luck
