Hotel Santiago opens 2nd of August under Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group management, following the Group’s announcement in May. Known in the past as the Grand Hyatt Santiago, the property will take an extensive renovation, the first stage being scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2018. Hotel Santiago has the prestigious name after the city of Santiago or Santiago de Chile. The hotel will remain open throughout the period, and is already accepting reservations. Hotel Santiago is located in the heart of the city’s most important commercial and leisure district, known as Las Condes. Here is the home of two luxury shopping malls, restaurants, museums and theatres.
It is also close to the exclusive residential neighbourhood of Vitacura. Hotel Santiago gathers 310 guestrooms including 23 suites with commanding views of the city and the Andes. Its 25,000-square meter grounds contain a large free-form outdoor pool and landscaped gardens which provide a resort environment for guests. Hotel Santiago is a real pearl as it currently features five restaurants and bars as well as extensive banqueting and meeting space. Additional facilities include a spa and fitness center. Hotel Santiago will continue to operate throughout the first phase of the renovation which will reposition the property as a Mandarin Oriental hotel in the third quarter of 2018. The new luxury accommodation, public areas and landscaped gardens will be redesigned to reflect local culture, with features inspired by Mandarin Oriental’s Asian heritage.
