I stayed two days and one night at the Hotel Santa Cruz Plaza in October 2008 while on a wine tour in the Colchagua Valley as part of an overall tour of South America. I found it unique in design and presentations. It is part of a Museum complex (Colchagua Museum, fabulous displays!) and an ultra new Casino (Casino Colchagua, of course). The hotel is housed in an older structure but it has been modernized and everything worked, to include the shower and bathroom, the glass elevator and the high speed internet was truly high speed. The second floor foyer stained glass window added charm to the back side of the building. I stayed on the second floor and slept on a very comfortable double bed. There was a panarama view of the Santa Cruz Plaza, the hotel's namesake, from the large window and small balcony. The adjacent Colchagua Museum is a wonderful collection of everything related to the history of the area. There are also old motor cars and other modes of transportation, both indoors and outdoors. I did not eat in the restaurant but did partake of their wine samples at the bar. Excellent pours, of course. Breakfast was buffet style with lots of breads and cheeses but also everything that an American tourist would want and served in a large room as part of a tiki area between the hotel and the casino. Overall, the hotel was above average to me because of its historic surroundings and one part of a wonderful time in the area. The sleeping room was average in the overall scheme of things.
