Hotel Tyndell or Hotel Las Torres

We will be in the Torres del Paine area for three days at the beginning of December. We plan to rent a car and drive there from Punta Arenas via Puerto Natales. I am not sure which is the best location for us to stay at for the three days. One of the obvious things we want to do is the hike to the Towers. My concern is that if we stay at the Tyndell, which would be more cost efficient especially since we could rent a cabin and make our own meals, that we would be too far away to get to the start of the hike in time to complete it. I believe that we couldn't even enter the park until 0830. Las Torres looks nice and it is a good location but the cost is obviously a lot more and if we didn't do the all inclusive option I can only imagine how much meals would cost us. Can anyone advise how long it would take us to get to the start of the hike from Tyndell in driving time? And offer advice on which is the better option? Thank you in advance.

I think it would take about 60-90 minutes to drive.

I feel the convenience of the Hotel las Torres is worth it. Straight out from your room and on the trail, and then straight back in for a hot bath at the end. I did not fancy sitting in a car for an hour after that hike!

If you have enough time I think it's worth it to book one of the all inclusive packages at Hotel Las Torres. They include pick up and drop off from Punta Arenas and El Calafate if that's your next destination. You won't have to rent a car that way. We noticed that most of the bad reviews of the hotel were from guests who weren't all inclusive. I think it's mostly because the food and drinks are quite expensive if you book room only.

Buffet dinner---$55

Hamburger in the bar--$20

Beer--$12??
