This slick skyscraper is where chic Santiageños come to see and be seen—a contemporary and tech-forward hotel with spare, minimalist décor and its own strange lexicon (typical of all Starwood-owned W hotels). All rooms have views (ask for a west-facing one to see the snow-capped Andes), very large bathrooms, and heaps of electronic bells and whistles. In both the public spaces, like the giant lobby, and in the rooms themselves, there are elements of Chilean decor including bright tapestries and pillows and native wood accents. There are also local modern art pieces dotted around the lobby which are for sale, and Chilean music plays nearly 24/7 in the background. It is part of a larger building, so you take an elevator up to the lobby to check in, making it feel even more separated from the city outside. The slick 21st floor rooftop pool is a great choice for sushi and a pisco sour. Great people watching!
