Relax in one of our hotels in Santiago, within easy reach of the regal Plaza de Armas square and the bustling Mercado Central. In no time you'll be eating fresh seafood and sipping a citrusy pisco sour.
Walk or take the funicular up to Cerro San Cristóbal, topped by a statue of Christ, for views of Santiago's cityscape and the snow-capped Andes. Our Santiago hotels are near the colonial-era Plaza de Armas, a gathering place for chess players, shoe shiners and street entertainers. It's a great spot to watch the passing parade. If you've only time for one museum, make it the Chilean Museum of Pre-Columbian Art, which spotlights ancient South American cultures. Try to do your sightseeing on the weekends-most museums are free on Sunday but closed on Monday.
Join the throngs in the Mercado Central, a 19th-century market hall where fishmongers lure you to their good-value marisquerías (seafood stands). It's easy to reach the historic center from our Santiago hotels. Here you can take your pick of little hole-in-the-wall picadas. These family-run eateries dish up Chilean comfort food like hearty bean stews and seafood empanadas (pastries). Santiago's best deal is the menú del día, a set lunch menu. For late-night partying and pisco sours, hit the cafés, bars and discos in the bohemian Bellavista neighborhood. Take a breather in the hilltop gardens of Cerro Santa Lucía, dotted with palms, sculptures and fountains. Our Santiago hotels are a quick hop from Parque Quinta Normal, where the locals go picnicking on weekend afternoons.
Stay at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Santiago to plug in to the city's non-stop buzz. Come in January for jazz festivals and in July for colorful parades and parties of the Feast Day of the Virgen del Carmen.
I was pleasantly surprised by a trainee employee (lady, sorry I forgot her name), who performed the check inn very efficiently, and who finally arranged for a late check-out.
Exactly what a[More] foreign business traveller needs, great job ![Less]
Comfortable bed and great service, terrible internet
Great rooms, amazingly comfortable beds and really good service. Too bad about the internet wifi being basically non-functional. Weird that they also charge you for wanting to print a boarding[More] pass, but overall - good property.[Less]
Staff very friendly great location very nice comfy bed[Less]
Great Hotel - Great Staff
Always nice to stay at the Intercontinental Hotel - Santiago . The staff are friendly but professional, comfortable rooms that make the stay away from home pleasant. Unfortunately the rooms are a bit[More] noisy, specially the ones towards the front of the building. Traffic and horns are heard from the 3rd floor to the last floor. Over all a nice place to stay never the less.[Less]

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and once again I was impressed by the hotel room. It met all my wife and my expectations and was very comfortable. The location was close to my[More] work and to good quality restaurants, bars and sights. The views from the room were wonderful. We were only disappointed with the breakfast staff who although there were a number of them did very little. Overall an excellent stay and we will return on future visits to Santiago.[Less]
