What Is Your Favorite Travel Guide?

My husband and I are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel to Buenos Aires later this summer. As soon as our plane tickets were purchased, I immediately bought myself a travel guide. With vacation season upon us, we are curious: do you have a go to travel guide for your extended vacations?

I have been pretty happy with the Rough Guide and Let's Go series (especially in my hostel staying days), but usually supplement them with lots of online research. And of course, once at the vacation location, nothing is as valuable as the advice of locals.

What resource do you consistently turn to? Has a travel guide ever been the source for an amazing find or an exceptional fail?
