I stayed at Santiago Hillside Hotel in early September and it was nothing but a pleasure. The hotel staff and Jorge, the owner, were beyond helpful. Their knowledge of Santiago and the surrounding regions made getting around and doing everything we wanted to do on our trip easy and accessible.
The room itself was luxurious with a great view, clean and modern bathroom, and the bed was THE best hotel bed I've ever slept in.....without a doubt.
The hotel is about an hour's drive to the Tres Valles Ski resorts and a short cab ride to downtown Santiago. We skiied 4 of the 6 days we stayed at this hotel and each day met us with a quick ride to the mountain followed by a full day of sunny spring skiing.
There are several restaurants within walking distance, but overall the hotel is in a quiet gated community. The gourmet breakfast also deserves mention, as it was delicious.
We also stayed 3 nights at Santiago's sister hotel in Valparaiso. The Valparaiso Vineyard Inn was an equally amazing experience. The hotel itself is a little more eclectic in style than the Santiago Hillside Hotel, but equally as luxurious with the same quality of service. Valparaiso as a town is artsy and fun with plenty of restaurants and nightlife and easy access to the towns of Vina del Mar and Recon.
I will definitely be staying at these hotels my next visit to Chile, which can not come too soon.
