We left for the airport at 4:30 AM after a nice continental breakfast. Our flight is at 8:30 AM. There were no crowds at the airport since we were there so early. The airport is new and really nice with outstanding high-end shops and restaurants. Our flight was very good...we really like LAN. Luis met us at the airport. He is a Program Director …
Today was a day trip to the coast - Valparaiso. It was a murky morning, cold & overcast in Santiago. Santiago sits in a central plain between the Andes and the coastal ranges. Valparaiso is one of the major ports in Chile with a great deal of container traffic & produce destined for Santiago where over half of the Chilean population lives ( …
The first day traveling is always the hardest - especially when you travel West to East. Our 38 hour day started in Sydney with the news the flight was running late and that Qantas had oversold the seats. Thankfully Narelle had checked us in on-line & our seats were safe!!
Premium Economy on a long haul flight is certainly worth it. It …

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Hotel Santiago
Following extensive research on hotel accommodation in Santiago (obviously I didn't research hard enough!), I decided upon the Crowne Plaza. I booked an "executive" room. Hotel lobby decor is very outdated, check-in was very efficient and friendly, room was hugely disappointing...definitely not "executive" standard, room decor very outdated, bathroom claustrophobic...coffee maker was placed on shelf adjacent to toilet...hello hygiene people! Friends had booked non-executive room and they had a far bigger room. Internet access had to be paid despite saying it was free! Executive level breakfast room was cramped...I could barely get in and out of my seat (BTW I am not fat!), we were offered no hot food and the buffet was disappointing to say the least...but the coffee was good! Opted to go to the main breakfast restaurant following our executive experience...the hot food was not so hot, the bread was far from fresh and the fruit was all tinned...mmmm apetising! Executive lounge reminded me of my grandmother's lounge before she decorated in the 1980's...the pool table was not a proper pool table. Reception staff were very nice, and very helpful. They recommended great restaurants in the nearby Bellavista neighbourhood and organised a day trip to the Concha y Toro Vineyard in Maipo Valley. Location was good, about 10 min walk to city centre and main shopping district, 5 min walk to Bellavista, full of great bars and restaurants. Seemed to be lots of tour groups staying in the hotel and lots of air crew. Pool was great, really enjoyed it and different air crews added to a great pool atmosphere! However, if you like nice decor, comfortable rooms, coffee makers in your bedroom, a good game of snooker and a decent breakfast, then this hotel is not for you.
When I saw the pilots and airline stewards and stewardesses at the desk, I knew that this was going to be a good hotel. It lived up to all the best reviews on tripadvisor. The rooms are quite large and probably all have pleasant views of the city. It is near San Cristobal and in a nice section of Santiago. The personnel were friendly and helpful and the restaurant was good.
Fantastic Service & friendly staff
This hotel deserves the five star rating it gets. Everyone is very helpfull and the rooms are cleaned very well. I would stay there again the price is well worth the stay. they also have the internet free of charge not just laptops but a computer area to go on line when ever you want to.
This hotel has a great location, and usually the price is just right! Most of the tourist attractions are within walking distance, as well as many places where locals go.
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Santiago for 4-nights in March of this year. It's located on The Alameda (O'Higgins Blvd), Santiago's main street. Our room was medium sized, as was the bathroom. We were easily able to walk to Plaza de Armas, Plaza de la Constitucion, and Cerro Santa Lucia. The restaurant in the hotel was good and so was the service. The only disadvantage to staying here was being in downtown Santiago. Although it was convenient for sight seeing and safe during the day, it is not safe at night. Santiago is spreading out and the neighborhoods just outside of downtown are safer at night. If you're going to tour during the day and stay in at night, I can recommend this hotel. If you want to eat out in the evening and stroll at night, choose one of the hotels in the Las Condas area.
Enjoyed the stay
This hotel is a typical Crowne Plaza in style and internal features. It is in a good location close to the Metro and a restaurant precinct. Good value for money but characterless in the form of an international chain hotel! great views from the rooms on the upper floors (we were on the 17th) when the smog lifts!
i have just spent four nights at the Crown Plaza, Santiago and was very happy with the experience. It has a nice Chilean atmosphere, and the staff are very friendly. it is well placed for exploring some interesting places including the handcraft market, the indigenous craft market, and the main shopping streets which are vibrant and there is a lot of street activity such as music and dance.
The bed was huge and comfortable and the views are fantastic, if you are lucky enough to experience a clear day.
We only stayed 2 nights at Crowne Plaza (see other reviews on Hyatt and Boulevard Suites). It is a comfortable hotel perfect for tourists and business (high speed internet works!). Not as luxurious as Hyatt, Marriott, Intercontinental, etc. but then prices reflect this. It is right on O'Higgins Boulevard (main "drag") and subway is a block away, however, we decided to go to Las Condas area as we were advised it was a safer neighbourhood at night. We had an absolutely fantastic seafood dinner at this hotel. It was as good as other highly rated restaurants we tried (Isla Negra and Coco Loco) and the service was outstanding!
The staff at the Crowne Plaza are friendly, gracious and helpful. I arrived at 5 am and was concerned that I'd have to wait till noon before they would give me a room. Not so. Lorenzo, a charming front desk clerk, verified my reservation and immediately assigned me a room. I was not charged extra for this early arrival. All rooms are equipped with a personal safe, so there is no need to carry a lot of cash or your valuables.
Heaven downunder !
If your looking for a touch of magic in a perfect location, look no further than the Crowne Plaza in Santiago, Chile. Great location, wonderful food, beautiful hotel together with a warm, friendly and helpful staff made by week long stay the perfect business trip (note - rooms have high speed internet).
