“Five stars but far from perfect”
Reviewed 6 November 2006

This is a high-quality hotel and while my stay there was enjoyable, it was far from memorable. The pros of this hotel are clear: good location in a clean and fairly quiet neighborhood, nice interior design and (with some qualifications) very friendly and efficient staff. Great! But all this is to be expected from any five-star hotel. Here are the cons: I was assigned a non-smoking room that however smelled from smoke. I did not see this as a problem initially since the odor was very mild. However, by the time I moved out the whole room smelled really bad (so they may have a problem with the building's structure). You pay $15 a day for the Internet (booo!); there are no extra blankets in the room; no paid movie channels on TV (bad for a business traveler); the buffet at the Club level has a rather limited selection and is a bit on the greasy side. Most new 4-star hotels in Europe or Asia can beat them on these counts. To go back to the positives: most staff are truly fantastic. The hotel must have the best bellmen and concierge in town! But beware of the ladies at the Club-level check-in, they have an attitude ...

I stayed at the Ritz Carlton from the 28th April to the 5th May 2006.

Location albeit not in the downtown area was great. One can easily catch the subway just outside of the hotel to the downtown area. In walking distance to the hotel is an abundance of excellent restaurants.

Our room on the club level was extremely comfortable as you would expect from a Ritz Carlton. The breafast and snacks in the club lounge were always impeccably well presented.

I honestly feel that anyone visiting Santiago has to stay at this hotel for the sheer comfort and luxury that it provides.
