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
I was unable to get any work done online. The Hotel internet is absolutely horrible. Slower than dial-up. I travel all over the world and out of all the hotels that I have stayed it the Intercontinental in Santiago is the worst.
I have stayed at this hotel many times. I always receive excellent service from Ms. Anna T at the front desk. She knows how to take care of customers and make them feel special during the stay. I highly recommend this hotel.
They sent me a email survey right after I checked in asking how the room was. I replied the next morning the coffee machine did not work. They sent somebody to my room to have a look and replaced it immediately. They followed up with another email soon afterwards.
A modern hotel, good facilities but rather soulless. A pleasant clean, comfortable room but chose to eat outside the hotel where there are plenty of small eateries. We spent one night which was fine but wouldn't have wanted to be there longer.
Very plush. Clean, spacious, opulent. Staff attentive and friendly however very limited English leading to some miscommunication.
Rooms spacious and very comfortable.
Lots of security whilst there as South American Presidents gathering.
