Arrival/Check-In: I arrived at the Santiago Marriott Hotel in Chile ahead of check-in and, luckily, my room was ready. While the front desk attendant checked me in, I admired the massive lobby. An elevator bank next to the front desk leads to the guestroom floors. The lobby opens up to the property’s fitness center and the Akun Lounge and Bar, with stairs and elevators leading down to event space and additional restaurants.

After a swift check-in process, I made my way to my room. I appreciated the extra time to settle in before heading out for my activities for the day.

Guest Quarters: My corner room on the 16th floor provided stunning views of the nearby Andes Mountain range. The room featured a king-sized bed, chair with ottoman, desk with numerous outlets and a large television. WiFi is complimentary. The bathroom featured a combination tub and shower plus a large vanity with multiple outlets.

Services/Amenities: During my visit I utilized the hotel’s lobby-level fitness center. Equipped with multiple cardio and weight machines and free weights, the 24-hour facility also offers a large area for fitness classes. The property’s spa and pool, also located within this area, provide guests with complimentary use of the pool, steam room and whirlpool. Spa treatments may be booked for a fee. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to enjoy the spa facilities during my stay.

My room came with access to the executive lounge on the 23rd floor. This provided the perfect spot to grab a bottle of water, snack or glass of wine. The space also offers panoramic views of the mountains. I grabbed a quick breakfast there the last morning of my stay. The breakfast spread included pastries, cold meat, a small hot station, yogurt, juices, fruit and cereal.

Dining options include three on-site restaurants as well as 24-hour room service. I enjoyed a phenomenal traditional Chilean feast at Latin Grill the first night of my stay. Highlights included an appetizer of mixed seafood preparations, seafood soup and grilled sea bass. I sampled the breakfast buffet at Café Med, located on the ground level of the property, the first morning of my stay. The beautiful spread included a variety of cold and hot meats, an omelet station, fresh juice, yogurt, fruit, vegetables and pastries.

The property features six event rooms, with a total of more than 3,500 square feet of meeting and event space. There’s an additional option for those conducting business. The property offers a business guestroom, complete with a separate office space attached to conduct business or host meetings.

For those traveling with children, a family room is available, with a play room off of the bedroom. The separate room features a queen pull-out sofa bed, a television and PlayStation games.

The Santiago Marriott Hotel is located in Los Condes, the financial district of the city, close to restaurants and shopping. Located within a brief car or subway ride to the cultural center of Santiago, the property proves perfect for a business or leisure stay.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

◆ Enjoy dinner at Latin Grill, a popular spot for locals and tourists.
◆ The property is about a 15- minute walk to the Manquehue subway station, a brief ride away from the cultural center of the city.
◆ Take in the beautiful views of the Andes during your stay.
