Intercontinental Ambasciatori Palace
Luxury and design in via Veneto.
An authoritative signature, that of the Italian architect Carlo Busiri Vici who in 1900 imagines a palace in neo-Renaissance style. It borrows from the Renaissance typical architectural elements, such as timpani and columns, creating symmetrical and elegant shapes. The interiors, never banal and never decorated, reflect the care in the attention to detail and attention to detail. They give the hotel, located in the center of Rome, that fin de siècle elegance, scenic and well represented by the concept of "discreet luxury". A place in continuous transformation: in principle residence for ambassadors visiting Rome, then, in 1946, library of the American Embassy, in 1993 the building opens its doors as Ambasciatori Palace Hotel. Comfort, luxury, elegance and style: these were the objectives that inspired the restoration of the structure.
The hotel is located right on the elegant Via Veneto, opposite the American Embassy. Attractions such as the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and Villa Borghese are a 15-minute walk away. A location that needs no introduction - Via Veneto - the street of glamour, cinema, crossroads of actors, musicians and artists of international fame, place of the Dolce Vita, home of the paparazzi, way of five-star Roman hospitality and excellence of reception. Between the symmetries of the brass portals, large columns, precious marble carpets, chandeliers, stuccoes and a monumental original staircase reinterpreted inspired by the prestigious Costanzi theatre in Rome, the Palace is sumptuous, warm and inviting, but without excesses.
The 160 rooms and suites are characterized by material elements, such as marble and wood, combined with modern colors and warm tones, are enhanced by the brightness of the spaces. Design and style, with references to some elements typical of the Eternal City, such as arches that have the function of dividers, brass handles, lamps suspended over the bedside tables, everything wants to reinterpret the ancient fluted columns, and a harmonious palette between blush pink and blue, pays tribute to the light and colors typical of the city, in contrast to the unexpected dark and scenic design of the corridors.
A name that embodies its philosophy: enjoy a meal until the last taste. A typically Italian gesture that is finally elevated and becomes the symbol of a new way of living the convivial moment. An elegant setting, where the Italian food and wine tradition blends with that of New York City. Scarpetta, has a strong sense of place through materials and motifs that refer to columns of Roman origin and large arched windows and elevate the existing architecture. The floor of the bar area of Scarpetta is in travertine and Levanto red marble from Italy, arranged according to a design derived from a mosaic of 200 A.D. Throughout the space, the tones of mallow, plum and a soft blue blend with the processing of wood, enriched by leather furniture.
To crown the structure is the outdoor bar Charlie's, which presents a mix of colors and patterns inspired by the 60s of Rome and the East Harlem district of Manhattan, dotted with lush vegetation. An environment of modern jetsetters, live music and exclusive dj sets, mixology and refined canapes.
