Sheraton Santiago: Come for the Convenience, Stay for the Donuts

2

The Sheraton Santiago Chile Hotel Review is part of the South America & Africa Points Heist Trip Report.


Getting There: Uber is illegal in Chile but is available. It was hard to connect with the driver. When you exit the airport, go across the street and to the parking light to the right of the Holiday Inn.


The Sheraton Santiago was the perfect launching spot for my wine adventure and for seeing Santiago. Doubling as a convention center, the Sheraton was bustling with people from morning to night. Unlike the Sheraton Times Square, this Sheraton provided attentive service despite being so busy.

The Room
The suite upgrade is always appreciated. The room was modern and provided a view of the pool and the Andes.

The Amenities 

The coffee machine was not the standard Nespresso but a new kind that I had not used. The Kenya coffee still did the trick.

The Bedroom
After the hostel life of Bolivia, it was great to have a proper bed to sleep in. The hours of being cramped in a car took its toll and this bed was the perfect way to recharge.

The Shower
Exploring the salt flats in Bolivia meant not showering for three days so I took my time in the shower.

The Breakfast
Look out Park Hyatt Paris, the Sheraton Santiago has better pastries. I’m a lover of the croissant, the donut, and the muffin. If you are too, then I suggest coming to Santiago, not Paris, to fulfill your sweet desires.

The Hotel Itself
From the outside, the Sheraton looked like the Sheraton Luxor i.e., it was a bit dated. From the inside, it was‎ much nicer than most American Sheratons.

It was too cold to swim in the pool but the patio area would be a nice place to lounge in the hot summer months.

Overall
There are many SPG options in Santiago. I chose the Sheraton because of its location and value. At 3500 SPG points + $55, it’s hard to find a better price and place.

TPOL’s TIP: 

  • For a good time, head to Vitacura, an upscale suburb of Santiago.
  • Europcar is located in the basement of the hotel.

  1. Nice review. I’m booking travel to Santiago next year and have a ton of IHG points and only a few SPG points. I’m wondering how the Intercontinental compares to this hotel.
    Keep the Chile info coming. There isn’t a lot of good information on the internet on this area I don’t think.
