Located near Vitacura, and surrounded by high-end shops and restaurants
Vitacura is a wealthy and fashionable area, close to Santiago’s financial center of Las Condes and the ritzy apartment buildings and mansions of El Golf neighborhood. The finest in clothing and furniture can be found along the famed Calle Alonse de Cordova.
Although the city has had a storied past, marked by battles over colonialism and freedom, present-day Santiago is a bustling, loud, ever-growing and ever-evolving metropolis populated with nearly seven million people. Aside from being the political and economic center of Chile, it is also fast becoming the country's hub for arts, entertainment, food and drink, and culture. The dynamic city is dotted with museums, theaters, bars, and different vibrant neighborhoods that cater to various crowds, such as the bohemian artists, culinary elite, and politicians. What makes this urban center especially unique is the fact that it's surrounded by the beautiful, glistening snow-capped Andes Mountains. Although Santiago has had a problem with smog and air pollution, it's still difficult not to be impressed by this stunning natural backdrop.
The luxurious NOI Vitacura Hotel is located near the affluent Vitacura neighborhood, known for its fashionable clothing and furniture, elite schools, and one of the most exclusive shopping thoroughfares in Santiago, Calle Alonse de Cordova. The building is a stunning masterpiece of modern architecture, towering with elegance and grandeur. Inside, the 87 rooms have wide, floor-to-ceiling windows that bring in lots of natural light, and decor that's chic and cozy at the same time. The rooms come with automatic curtains, sheets imported from Portugal, phones with video conferencing, and beautiful pristine bathrooms with separate soaking tubs and showers. There are two restaurants and two bars on the property, and all are decidedly upscale; the Piegari serves classic Italian fare with the backdrop of a lovely never-ending waterfall, while the Tramonto Bar & Terrace sits on the hotel’s rooftop and offers magnificent views of the Andes Mountains.
