I booked the W Santiago Hotel for 4,800 Starpoints and $90 before the March 1st Starwood Cash & Points devaluation. The W Santiago is located in the swanky Las Condes neighborhood of Santiago, Chile. I took the Metro subway from the Pedro de Valdivia station (nearby Sheraton Santiago & San Cristobal Tower) to the El Golf station (nearby W Santiago). It’s only a 10 minute walk from the El Golf station to the hotel.

Upon entering the W Santiago, I was floored by the highly decorated lobby. This was by far the most modern hotel lobby I’ve ever been to.
I checked into the hotel at around 5pm and the front desk agent told me that I was upgraded to a Marvelous Suite. I had already known that because I used a Suite Night Award and was confirmed 5 days prior. I took the 500 Starpoints as my Platinum amenity and advised the agent I would need a 4pm late checkout and she didn’t hesitate to put it through.
I went up to room 1001 and made a short video about the Marvelous Suite at the W Santiago.
The living room area was pretty large and contained a L-shaped sofa and a breakfast bar area with plenty of seating.
The bedroom contained a King sized bed with a large work-space desk.
The only strange part about the room is the open floor plan layout. The bathroom is literally next door to the bedroom and there are no walls to separate the two.
The large tub and separate shower area contained the usual Bliss amenities.
The best part about the room was the outdoor balcony large enough to throw a party. It has nice sweeping views of the Las Condes neighborhood.
I would highly recommend this hotel if you’re looking to stay in the Las Condes area with swanky restaurants and bars. It’s a 10 minute walk to the El Golf metro station and another 20 minutes via subway ride if you need to go to downtown Santiago. This was by far the best W hotel I’ve ever stayed at despite the open floor plan layout of the Marvelous Suite.
