SANTIAGO, CHILE—Renaissance Hotels recently opened the 181-room Renaissance Santiago Hotel, marking the third Renaissance Hotel to open in South America. The new hotel is situated in the upscale neighborhood of Vitacura, surrounded by boutiques and restaurants.
“Already exquisitely represented in the region with the Renaissance Caracas La Castellana Hotel and our flagship property in South America the Renaissance Sao Paulo, Renaissance Hotels has truly become a favorite amongst travelers”, stated Craig S. Smith, president of the Caribbean and Latin America for Marriott International, Inc.
Smith added, “The hotel’s sophisticated design, latest in modern amenities and a wide selection of dining and entertainment options, we are confident it will find success in one of the most vibrant cities in the region and play an important role in the continued emergence of Chile as a leading economy in Latin America.”
With a commitment to local sustainability, the Renaissance Santiago Hotel is also actively pursuing official LEED certification from the United States Green Building Council. Each of hotel’s 181 guestrooms and suites feature modern design including luxury bedding and high tech amenities. For special events, the hotel provides nearly 12,000 sq. ft. of conference space. The hotel also includes the Elential Fitness Center & Spa, outdoor pool and whirlpool.
The property is owned by Altamira Grupo Inmobiliario and will be operated by Administraciones y Operaciones Hoteleras Hotech S.A.
