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.
