As with our opinion of the Aubrey, if you are looking to stay in a chic and modern hotel while in the capital, then you could not do too much better than considering the W Santiago. This modern and sleek property is leading the way in bringing Santiago into the 21st century and has played host to such big names as Beyonce amongst others. With a whole range of facilities, restaurants and one of the capital’s most popular nightclubs, you can easily lose a couple of nights here…

Part of the Westin Hotel chain, the “W” range were created to aim at a more youthful and hip sector of the market…young bankers with money and the inclination to spend their evenings partying in the best nightclubs and their days relaxing by rooftop pools or eating sushi with views of the city. In a nutshell, this is exactly what the W Santiago provides.

Nothing about your experience is all that conventional…from the very off, you are greeted on the 3rd floor by a young and well dressed staff member who walks you through the modern and uber-luxurious lounge area, past the covered café that looks out across the city, and up in the lift to your room.

Once here, you will notice the sharp and carefully chosen fabrics, the soft, down filled pillows…you may sit on the signature “W” mattress for a few seconds before getting up to look out across the city from your floor to ceiling window! There really is nothing that has been overlooked!

After a quiet drink at their fully stocked bar, featuring over 6.000 different bottles of wine, you can then choose to have a Japanese inspired meal in their award winning restaurant, or, perhaps a quiet walk with your favourite pet (who are allowed to stay as well) on the rooftop, with heated outdoor pool and open air nightclub!

If that is not all, the hotel has a whole host of modern additions such as the “Whatever/Wherever” service that can supply anything you want at any time…or you can merely order room service through the hotel “app”.

For those that are looking to do it in style, then there is little doubt that the W is definitely forging the way in Santiago at the moment!

Very funky and packed with extras and treats throughout

Can be busy, pay for what you get
