The favorite gathering spot for business travelers abroad, the grand Alvear Palace Hotel in Buenos Aires is set to extend its appeal to an address more convenient to the capital’s business offices with its sibling 139-room Alvear Art Hotel, opening later this year. While the stately Palace anchors the upscale Recoleta neighborhood, the Art Hotel will open in a Financial District highrise with significant after-hours appeal in a spa and swimming pool on the top two stories.
