Where to Stay in Santiago

I just returned from a trip to Santiago, Chile. Although this particular trip was for a vacation, I stayed at the DoubleTree by Hilton in the upscale Las Condes neighborhood and I highly recommend it if you’re ever in Santiago for business. The rooms are quiet and comfortable (as you would expect from a Hilton property), and you get a perfect view of the Andes mountains if you get a room facing east or the San Cristobal Hill, if facing west. The neighborhood is great for getting out for a walk if you have a few minutes with a lot of shops and restaurants. There’s also a short paseo (La Pastora) between Avenida Apoquindo and Isidora Goyenecha with ten sculptures made from stone, bronze and steel.

The best thing about this hotel is definitely the warm, friendly staff. They made sure we felt welcome, gave us great information about the area, tips on restaurants and hints of places to visit. I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels throughout my travels and I think the staff at this DoubleTree was among the best I’ve ever encountered. Kudos to the whole team and to the management for obviously providing great training!

Welcome fellow Road Warriors! Like many of you, I travel for work -- A lot! But believe it or not, I actually pretty much love it. I've become a bona fide business travel tourist by finding quick things to do when I find myself with the bits of free time that we business travelers sometimes get (i.e. after meetings and before dinner.) especially if I'm in a great city like Chicago, NY or San Francisco. Because we never have much time, this blog is all about quick, easy, inexpensive/free things to do in some of the cities I travel to along with recommendations for restaurants that are great for meals with colleagues, but also perfectly comfortable for solo dining. So maybe next time you find that you have a few minutes to yourself on a business trip, before you just automatically head for your hotel room, barricade yourself in with your computer and cell phone and order room service, you'll be inspired to become a business travel tourist and start loving your business travel too. Feel free to comment on any of my posts and let me and other readers know if you have tips, or recommendations. Happy Travels!
