I would never recommend this hotel for anyone traveling for business in the Santiago area. When we checked in (three of us traveling in my group), we specifically asked for rooms away from the casino - my room was right over the top of the casino on the third floor. On Saturday night and Monday night, the casino had a band playing - sounded like it was right outside my window and I could not get any sleep at all. In my room, the AC fan bearing must have been shot - it was noisy anytime the fan kicked on (which it did often when i was in the room because the cleaning personnel shut it off every day after they cleaned making the room sweltering when we got back from the job site). The breakfast staff was wonderful. The young lady in the gift shop was wonderful. The door man was very kind and helpful. Other than that, the rest of the staff did not seem to care (although they were very helpful if you were a "Fifth Floor Resident". There is construction going on both sides of the building - large areas of the exterior wall have been removed for improvements. Why they had to tear out so much before they started to repair, I don't know, but all of the exterior access led to bugs and construction noise. The pool itself was nice, but the deck was so hot it was no fun getting from the pool chair into the pool. The only other positive I can think of is the location - it is walking distance from Pedro's, one of my favorite restaurants in all of Santiago. I hope it gets better once all of the construction completed, but doubt I will ever come back to find out.
