Alvear Palace Hotel


El Espartano has developed an exclusive design of rugs for the luxurious Alvear Palace Hotel in Buenos Aires.

The Alvear Palace Hotel has recently refurbished its elegant rooms and has thus chosen a custom-made design of the “Wilton Jacquard” rug, one of the most traditional products developed by El Espartano. These rugs are woven in our new top-notch Wilton loom using pure virgin wool, combining cut and loop pile textures in different heights in order to achieve a checkered design that highlights the luxurious style of these spaces.

Located in the heart of Recoleta, the Alvear Palace Hotel is one of the most exquisite buildings in Buenos Aires and has been declared Historical Monument by the City Hall. It is constantly rising to the challenge of renewing its style and modernizing itself while preserving the classic imprint in its décor.

Architect Ariel Levy found the Wilton Jacquard rugs to be ideal in his search of this balance. This sophisticated product was specially designed in beige and grey for this project so as to match the rooms palette and stress the lighting of these spaces by providing its furniture and curtains in neutral shades with a velvet-like appearance. Its high knot density weave increases durability and guarantees wear and tear resistance, preserving the outstanding pattern of crisscrossed stripes.

This new design was originally developed for the exclusive Lounge Suites on the top floors of the hotel that offer breathtaking panoramic views of the city and a privileged décor and facilities for the most demanding guests.
