The rather bland brick exterior of this 15-story hotel, the first Ritz-Carlton in South America, belies the luxurious appointments within. Mahogany-paneled walls, cream marble floors, and enormous windows characterize the splendid two-story lobby. Elegant furnishings upholstered in brocade and silk floral fabrics dominate the large guest rooms. Under a magnificent glass dome on the top floor you can swim or work out while pondering the panorama, smog permitting, of the Andes and the Santiago skyline. There is high tea in the bar, with reservations.

We used the Ritz as a central base while traveling in Chile. We ended up staying four nights. The staff is really top notch. There is a constuction sight across the street, so if you like to sleep late ask for a room on the other side of the hotel. They started construction early and worked on Saturday. Resturants were good but kind of pricey.
