Two distinct hotels stand side by side at this lovely property that for the most part functions as a single entity, as nearly all amenities are shared by guests of both hotels. The Sheraton Santiago is certainly a luxury hotel, but the San Cristóbal Tower is in a class by itself. Pricier and more luxurious than the Sheraton, it is popular with business executives and foreign dignitaries who value its efficiency, elegance, and impeccable service. A lavish, labyrinthine
marble lobby links the two hotels, their fine restaurants, and their large hotel convention center. Pampering is not all that goes on at the San Cristóbal Tower—attentive staff members at the business center provide secretarial and other services. The modern rooms have elegant linens and are decorated with rich fabrics. Tourists (rather than business makers) favor the slightly more modestly priced Sheraton ($$$$). Its rooms are smaller but still bright: ask for one overlooking the San Cristóbal Hill.
