Fodor's Review

The best hotel in downtown Santiago attracts attracts business travelers with its central location, but the pool and sundeck, fitness room, steam and sauna, and Asian-inspired massage services are equally attractive to tourists. Guest rooms have luxury bedding, are modern and utilitarian, but could use some colorful, cheery accessories. The executive floor (starts at $225) rooms are even larger, more attractive and include a 30-minute massage and a nightly happy hour among

other things. At the lobby level, which has had a slick redecoration, a most appealing breakfast buffet is an option; by night, you can enjoy fusion cuisine at Boka (edgy décor) or have mojitos and Spanish-style tapas in the Bar & Meson.
