The Alvear Palace is a member of Leading Hotels of the World, set in Buenos Aires’ most elegant neighbourhood, La Recoleta, with its leafy parks and wide boulevards. The best restaurants and boutiques in the city are within easy reach, as well as museums and the financial district. The hotel resides in an imposing, 11-storey building and the French-inspired interiors are reminiscent of Louis XV and Louis XVI styles, with crystal chandeliers, velvet and gilded wood-panelling abound.

Inside, 87 ornate and opulent rooms and suites offer varying degrees of comfort, but all are luxurious, with an Imperial style carried through in the rich drapes, elegant furniture and Egyptian cottons, while Hermès de Paris amenities can be found in the marbled bathrooms. Some of the suites provide butler service and VIP access to the Alvear Lounge, a tranquil haven in black, white and gold under a glass dome.
