has countless decent restaurants within easy walking distance. It is also just steps away from the excellent metro. That system, incidentally, is extremely safe, quick and clean. My room was exceptionally quiet. The bedding was comfortable. One minor quibble: there was no luggage rack in the room when I checked in, nor was there a wastepaper basket in the bedroom. However everything else was excellent. Special recommendation is the Ritz Carlton Bar. The sommelier by the name of Ignacio was exceptionally knowledgeable about Chilean wines and was eager to share his extensive expertise. There is a fabulous collection of wines to sample. I had one meal at the hotel's international restaurant called Estro and the steak was one of the best I have ever had I anywhere. The waitstaff there and indeed all of the staff at the Ritz Carlton were extremely attentive and friendly. Special thanks to Alberto for his attentiveness and to the concierge service that I used extensively - finding Jordanno and Claudio always informed and helpful. The gym was quite good although it lacked weight machines that worked the legs. The pool is short - not sufficient for lap swimming. Without hesitation I would stay there again were I to return to Santiago.
