Fodor's Expert Review Cap Ducal

Av. Marina 51, Viña del Mar, Valparaíso, Chile

A classic in Viña, this ship-shaped building on the waterfront is best known for its restaurant dating to 1936, but also offers fun, oddly shaped rooms inspired by a transatlantic ocean liner. Those on the third floor have narrow balconies. Be sure to ask for a view of Reñaca, or you may see, and hear, the highway. A three-level restaurant serves seafood that tops the view.
