Chilean Wine with the Andes as a Backdrop: 4th Night Free at San Cristobal Tower, Santiago

February 11, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

San Cristobal Tower, SantiagoFew places can rival Santiago as far as urban settings are concerned. Flanked by the snow-capped Andes Mountains, the Chilean capital is certainly swoon-worthy. And book a stay at the San Cristobal Tower-- steps from La Chascona (the house where Nobel Prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda penned his love poems)-- and you may just fall in love. This sparkling urban resort will spoil you with meals of Patagonian lamb and fresh fish from the Pacific, paired with local Chilean wines. One of the "Top 10 Hotels in South America," San Cristobal Tower offers stunning views over Santiago's cityscape (and the mountain peaks). Return from your urban adventures or tours of the countryside, and take a dip in the Neptuno Pool, or play a match of tennis on the lighted court. With your elegant room accommodations, you'll appreciate personalized butler service. The hotel is currently offering a 4th night free when you stay for three nights with the "Taste of Luxury" package. Blame it on Valentine's Day, but we're also smitten with the "Pleasures of Being in Love" package which includes a romantic dinner for two, a bottle of Chilean wine, a welcome drink, breakfast service, private parking, and a late check-out with your rooms. From $319.
