Although this hotel bills itself as English in style, it's removed the formerly opressive dark furnishings, making the lobby and restaurant larger and airier. The restaurant serves French and Chilean cuisine and has an abundant buffet. The glass-covered pool on the top floor is tiny but has a great view.

Friendly staff, and nice, if somewhat small lobby with adjoining restaurant/bar. Typically small elevators (most I have seen in 6 weeks in Santigao generally fit 4 people or 2 with luggage). Rooms are of average-to-kinda-big size, quite comfortable, with good amenities, but not "luxury". Good size bathrooms with combination bath/shower. Based on 8+ years of buisiness travel in the US and Asia Pacific, 3-4 months a year on the road, better
than most, but not top-of-the-line. The pool, as noted, is small. The gym, similar. A small, windowless basement room. If two people beat you thre, come back later. The dry sauna looked new, but did not function. Many restaurants within easy walking distance and a good grocery store right across the street in a mini-mall with a good variety of shops. Value is based on a corporate rate, long term stay, so should be adjusted down if paying "standard rates".
