I researched this place the night before, and it looked like the best choice for us, so we that was our target when we drove into town. After driving quite a ways off the highway to the center of town, it was easy to spot as the only tall building in the center of town. We parked in the underground parking garage, always nice and we didn't need to drive the rest of our time in town. It's kind of odd to get from the garage to the lobby: you walk through a service area and up a service stairwell, through an unmarked door. They put us in a room on the 9th floor looking west, overlooking the town with the snowcapped Andes in the distance. The courtyard with the pool was down below. It got a little hot in the afternoon, even with the AC battling away. Room was small, but nicely appointed. Bathroom was a good size with modern finishes.
The pool courtyard was a nice place to hang out for lunch, as it had a bar with food service, although the food, prices and service were nothing to get excited about. You want to get there early enough to grab a table in the shade or with an umbrella, it gets pretty sizzling midday. Pool is small but refreshing. They have a spa where I got a massage which was mediocre. There is a casino attached to the hotel I didn't utilize. There is a restaurant in the lobby, didn't eat there but did use room service: quick delivery and tasty fare. Great, expansive breakfast buffet in the morning. Great location in the middle of town. Big grocery store across the street, many restaurants and stores along the main avenue.
My big complaint was the WiFi in the room which was poor. Even though I told them upon check in that it was very important to us since my son attends school via the internet and despite several complaints, the problem was never resolved. We spent a lot of time in the lobby where the Wifi was good to get his homework done.
