Overlooking Avenida Vitacura in Santiago’s buzzing financial district, the InterContinental Santiago is a 377-room business traveler favorite set in three high-rise towers. The two main buildings have a traditional style, from a light-flooded lobby with a stained glass ceiling to simple guestrooms done in beige shades. In contrast, the Club Tower has a more contemporary look, with a vertical living wall garden in the small lobby and a modern slate and cream palette in the 81 guestrooms. On the dining front, guests have their pick of grill favorites at 2920, Italian fare at Pasta & Basta, and Japanese fusion dishes at Temple, as well as a hearty breakfast buffet each morning and room service that’s available 24/7. There’s also a low-lit cocktail bar, Benatino, where the standout drink is Santiago’s signature pisco sour. For active types there’s a well-equipped gym (staffed Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.) and indoor lap pool, while spa lovers can book a massage in the single treatment room.
In the Area
In Santiago’s central financial district, the hotel is within walking distance of the cafés and boutiques that line Avenida Providencia, as well as the big brand stores at the Costanera Center mall. For a culture fix, the city’s sculpture park and Bicentennial Park are a short walk down Avenida Andres Bello, while the presidential palace, Plaza de Armas and National Museum of Fine Arts are clustered in the city center, just a 10-minute taxi ride away. For a slice of local life, head to boho Lastarria and wander the the tree-shaded streets, and book in advance for a table at Casa Lastarria, an artsy spot in a grand 1930s building. Save a morning for checking out the beautiful gardens and buildings and monuments in Cerro Santa Lucia Park.
How to Get There
Disappointing. I booked a room for an extra night to rest upon my arrival very early in the morning... called the night before to inform them. Upon arrival they give me a horrible room with construction noise and a cheap cologne smell! I asked for a change but the other available room was worse. Being an IHG gold member didn’t mean anything.
Great Hotel that is having an Amazing Location right next to a lot of nice restaurants and close to the shopping mall. The service is fantastic and the gym and pool is quite nice to use with a Fantastic view of the mountains
Beautiful, spacious rooms, good location in the Las Condes district.
Best part, however was the very attractive Club Lounge with great offerings for breakfast, tea time and dinner. Pity that the service was only so-so: one morning a enthusiastic hostess, the other days one young lady hiding behind her desk fumbling with her smartphone
Great hotel in the Santiago business district. Access to food and shopping. Highly recommended facility. Staff extremely courteous and helpful and went the extra mile to ensure that all needs were addressed.
Excellent hotel with spacious and comfortable rooms. Good breakfast, restaurants and bar. Staff were superb and all spoke excellent English. I will use this hotel every time I go to Santiago. Excellent location just on the edge of the city centre and well within walking distance of lots of restaurants.
