Santiago Marriott Suites Jan 20, 2012
Santiago City is considered to have very bad air due to its location in the Maipo Valley, surrounded by Cordillera Mountains and having 6.5 million people living and driving around. Smog is almost an everyday occurrence in the lower parts of the city, so people are trying to get on higher ground. Wealthier neighborhoods cover most of the northern areas of the hills. Santiago Marriot is higher up the hills from Santiago Center in the area called Las Condes on the main artery called Presidente Kenedy Avenue. Large mall located is right next to the hotel, and includes large super market and lots of well equipped nice shops.

We stayed in Marriott Suites, which have separate entrance with small reception and 24h service. Suite was very big and well equipped. Bedroom was connected to the living room with the large door that can be folded into walls. In the morning kitchen staff member brings excellent breakfast that you order night before so we used to close that door so we have total privacy and the breakfast :). Corner room gave us great view of the valley and the mesmerizing galloping fog, moving into the area early in the morning. You can indulge yourself in nice warm swimming pool, heat up in sauna, and there are many fitness classes that are free of charge. There are couple restaurants in the hotel but we did not have time to try them. On the bottom floor of the mall, there are few good restaurants, and one we been to had the best Pisco Sour that I have ever tasted. That drink was almost melting your mouth with clear and crisp tastes and incredible smoothness.

To go around from this hotel you’ll have to catch the buses that arrive next to the mall or take the cab. Santiago has really well organized metro and bus system, but this area is a bit out of the loops. Close to the hotel there is large well maintained park where you can play different sports jog or just walk and enjoy the greens. City is really nice and very safe to go around. Down town area has similar style of buildings to most of the European centers with nice passages that connect streets under the buildings and host lots of small shops. Most of the downtown is walking area with many small restaurants, local artist selling their work and all kinds of black market items that you can imagine. Hill in the center of the town called Cerro Santa Lucia, is nicely landscaped, and hosts beautiful kind of baroque buildings, lots of stairways and fountains. Santiago also has many museums and historical neighborhoods worth visiting. Another hill called Cerro San Cristobal hosts the statue of Virgin Mary (with lots of antennas behind…) and it is part of the park that can be walked or you can take cool funicular to climb up or gondolas to go to other part of the park. Metropolitan Zoo is located on the foothill of the park and whole area is full of restaurants, clubs and bohemian bars.

Santiago Hotel Nov 09, 2009
Especially for the business traveler, the Santiago Marriott will serve you well. Impeccable South American service greets you as soon as you arrive in the driveway. Although you are about 15 minutes from downtown, the hotel has a good location in relation to shopping and restaurants. Although I would rate the lobby lounge a 6 out of 10, the executive level lounge had good local fare for finger foods and a good selection of Chilean beers and wines. The hotel has 2 restaurants - The Cafe Med and the Latin Grill. The Cafe Med has a great lunch buffet that had everything from Calamari to Chilean Sea Bass with everything in between and a good, diverse salad selection. The Latin Grill was superb. I had a spectacular shrimp appetizer that had a sauce that was so good that I almost wiped out the table's breadbasket trying to mop it all up, and my steak could have been cut with a butter knife. I also had a breathtaking view from my room that was nice to wake up to every day. UPDATE: Just stayed at the Marriott Santiago again in October and will be back in December and March. Now that I have accumulated some points, my room was unbelievable; had a corner room with a conference room that actually came in handy when an immediate need for a meeting at the hotel saved time from getting across town to the corporate office. Cafe Med still had a great selection of fresh Mediterranean tappas and the Latin Grill had a different menu featuring items rarely found on the menu. I had the venison, which was unbelievable. Despite the other 5-star hotels in Santiago, I will always stay here when I travel to Santiago.
