Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here for 4 nights in a club room. We have stayed at other MO’s in Asia but were of the opinion that at this stage this hotel is not quite in the same league as it’s Asian counterparts.

The room was large we understand for Santiago standards. However, I found the room quite claustrophobic. Of course being on the 17th floor a balcony or windows were not possible. The bed while large was not comfortable- it had a thinner mattress than usual for a hotel and did not have an ensemble base but a wooden base for the mattress.

The side tables were modern and I thought on the small side and not free standing but rather attached to the wall giving the room a little bit of a modular feel rather than a luxurious feel.

The bathroom had a good shower and water pressure but was small and not private as there was no door to the bathroom area. I’m not sure whether with major droughts in many parts of the world whether a bath in a new hotel is now a thing of the past but this room had no bath and only one sink. There were no suites available as the hotel is having a major renovation and the upper levels which are suite levels are not available at present as they are under construction.

The breakfast while definitely adequate was not on the usual scale of choice and quality like those MO’s in Asia.
The staff were all warm and friendly. The beautiful resort type pool a highlight. As the hotel was not full on the Monday night only the Senso restaurant which serves breakfast was open and not the Japanese or others which we were keen to try. Our dinner at the Senso restaurant was good. The club room staff were excellent but the offerings at all time was the same and while once again adequate not delicious or that interesting.
However, for a safe and convenient place to stay in Santiago if we were to return to Santiago we would stay here again.

The Mandarin Oriental Santiago is the best hotel I have stayed in in terms of the quality of the accommodation. The hotel grounds are imposing, and the lobby has beautiful displays. I opted for an executive room over a deluxe room with fantastic furnishings and a great view of the Andes. The room is shaped like a parmesan wedge, getting broader as one approaches the windows, and the layout is superb, with a comfy seating space separate from the bedroom area. The television was huge, with a wide array of international channels. It is supported on a device that enables you to remove it from the wall's recess to watch tv from the bed; this was not apparent from the hotel photos. This accommodation is the finest hotel room I have stayed in, and I have stayed in a lot.

I arrived early, having travelled for almost a day. I got to the hotel around 10 am and dropped my suitcase off, knowing I had five to six hours to kill before check-in. I knew I could not check in until after 3 pm, but I would have appreciated it if the staff were to check to see if a vacant room was available so I could have recuperated immediately. Instead, I spent six hours in the Parque Arauco shopping centre until check-in.

The hotel is in an enviable location between Las Condes and Vitacura, directly behind the Parque Arauco, a giant shopping centre. Walking to the city centre near Plaza de Armas and Bellas Artes takes about an hour, but you can quickly get an Uber, and it is less than ten minutes.

I dined at Senso on a Saturday evening, and the dishes were surprisingly flavourful and authentic; my only qualm about the food was the size. I ordered crab ravioli for the main dish, which only had five pieces; it could have been better value for money. The pastelería is great with exceptional products, although somewhat pricey.

The hotel gym is small but has a few bits of the latest technogym kit and is adequate for a basic workout and cardio. On my first night, whilst trying to locate the gym on the M1 floor, I found a member of staff sitting on the floor with her back against the wall near the lifts and her legs spread out on the floor, playing on her phone. While I don't mind staff taking a break from their duties, I do not expect to find cleaners lounging about with their legs sprawling over the floor.

Too many men in black suits wander around the lobby and the hotel entrance; it makes you feel like you are in a high-security facility. The hotel would provide a more relaxed ambience without so many security guards.

We had a wonderful room , large and luxurious with a step dwn to a seating area with a great view of the mountains. The room and the common areas are definitely five star worthy but when we went down for a late lunch the dinning room was closed despite the fact that the schedule listed it as open alk afternoon. As for dinner they had a function which left us with no option but a buffet. We ended up having room service which was fine. I also had a problem with the bill where in addition to the room service and mini bar charge they added a charge for peanuts. In terms of the total it was minimal but it was a hassle getting everything right.

Good location and a nice property but not clearly the best f the three hotels stayed at during my trip ad by far the most expensive.

Dear jsthouston, First of all, I apologize for not answering before, but we had some missing reviews which we are updating. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and the good rate you give us. While we wish you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case that we fell short.

It is irresponsible of management to allow guests to stay here during such heavy construction. We stayed for 3 nights in early February, and the noise, dust, and odor from the construction was excruciating. They were jackhammering and sawing constantly from 8am - 7pm. The ceiling of our room literally vibrated from the jackhammering above. The air was thick with dust, and you could barely breathe the air because of a very strong varnish smell. The club lounge had to cover the food with towels because the dust was so thick (yum!). Several guests were (rightfully) unhappy and complaining because of the noise, smell, and dust.

Most of the flors were boarded up with plywood, adding to the feeling that we were staying in the middle of a construction site instead of a hotel.

I’ve never been so happy to check out of a hotel.

Not closing the hotel during this heavy construction totally ignores the comfort and safety of the hotel’s guests and employees. I felt terrible for the employees who have to breathe that dusty/chemically air all day every day. Management of this hotel should be ashamed that they’re greedily putting profits ahead of their guests’ and employees’ safety.

On top of that, management was totally unresponsive. I tried calling the front desk or the operator several times during our stay, only to have it ring without answer, eventually disconnecting. I went to the front desk to speak to the manager on duty to ask about the construction. I was told she was “in a meeting” and would call me shortly. She never did.

That being said, the staff is doing their best and everyone from the front desk, the club lounge, and the concierge was incredibly friendly and helpful.

When the construction is finished, this will be a nice hotel. The rooms are large, the views are fantastic, and the staff (excluding management) is wonderful.

The location, however, is not great for tourists. The hotel is not close to any subway stop and walking around this neighborhood (unless you want to go to a shopping mall) is not great because all the roads are very large and busy thoroughfares.

Dear Guest, I express you my deepest apologies for the disturbances caused by the renovation works during your stay and I thank you for your kind comments about the hotel staff and the rooms. It is our commitment to offer an excellent service and to ensure that the renovation impact to our guests and employees is the lowest possible. Unfortunately, in some occasions, even coordinating the construction works with and taking preventive measures to avoid disturbances, we fail in ensuring full satisfaction. It is clear that we did not achieved our goal during your stay and some of the works were much more noticeable than usual. Without the need go to the detail of what happened those days, my intention is to let you know that I have received your feedback and I really appreciate the time you have taken to write me. Please be informed that I will contact you in private to further discuss this situation. Once again, I express you my apologies and I look forward to receiving your response.

We have stayed here a number of times before, when it was a Grand Hyatt, and expected great things from the makeover under the MO brand. Having joined the Fans of MO I was initialy a little disappointed to be told that we could only have one of the two bonus choices, breakfast or a room upgrade. However, I was told by the concierge staff that I should ask when checking in and would probably get both.

Well that didnt work out and on being shown to our room we were shocked to find that all the bath tubs have been removed (this was not mentioned anywhere on the room descriptions), and on asking for a tub we were told they had only been left in suites, all of which were being renovated. A tub is a breaker for us and we wouldnt have stayed if we had known.

The online newspaper service (MO Library) didnt work, and when asking for help we were told there were no IT staff on duty and no one was going to look at it during our stay.

We booked dinner in the main restaurant and on arrival asked for a terrace table, only to be informed there was a special dinner outside, fully booked. This was not explained when I had booked earlier that day.

The delightful Asian restaurant in the gardens had been shut and was being turned into a meeting space.

When trying to raise these issues with reception before checkout I was informed that no manager was available to discuss them and to put my comments in writing. Not helpful.

When the survey arrived a couple of days later, all these points were included. The response - nothing!

If you have not stayed here before you may think the hotel is nice, there is nothing wrong with the food and some service was very good, but it is a pale reflection of its former glory.

Dear Jim W, Thank you for staying with us again and sharing your comments. I am glad to know that you enjoyed the food and some services and, at the same time, I apologise for the inconveniences you had during your stay. Particularly for not being able to fix the failure of the online newspaper provider and for not having availability on the restaurant terrace for Valentine's Eve. I am sorry that you did not like that our new rooms have changed the bathtubs for a walking showers and I understand that you would have liked to visit again our Thai restaurant that proudly served our guests for over 20 years. I am conscious that we were unable to meet your expectations this time and I really hope to have the opportunity to serve you again and offer you room options with bathtubs, such as our beautifully renovated suites or to secure a table for you on the terrace of our Senso Italian restaurant. Once again, thank you for your positive comments and for also sharing those aspects that did not meet your expectations. I assure you that your feedback is highly appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel, at which time we will spare no effort to ensure that you have an excellent experience with us.

Helpful and professional concierge staff - very friendly team throughout the hotel.

We experienced a number of issues during our stay which was booked through Amex FHR.

The rooms have been updated and the furnishings are quite nice. The bathrooms are large but have intermittent water pressure and a significant delay (3 to 5 minutes) for hot water. The toiletries are mixed brands, but we’re generally decent with large bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel affixed to the shower wall.

The suite was spacious (booked a premier suite) which was on the first floor. There are no upgraded amenities in the suites - no mini bar, coffee maker or sound system in the living/dining room areas. The suites are loud if you have someone above you so be aware - the hotel simply offered their apology after two sleepless nights due to the noise. The bed linens are crisp and the down pillows comfortable. The bed was hard as a rock and was very difficult to sleep on. The pool view from the suite is overlooks astroturf and a large construction hole that is blocked by fencing.

The public spaces at this property are under renovation (I will post photos), but Amex does not mention this on their site. The floor in the lobby and outdoor space is chipped and cracked and the fabric on the furniture is filthy. All restaurant spaces are unrenovated and are run down, dirty and outdated. There was even a broken window near one of the restaurants.

The FHR breakfast benefit is a buffet on par with Hyatt Place. The space is overcrowded and poorly ventilated.

The hotel is on a busy corner and can be easily spotted by the temporary construction walls and fabric MO sign. The grounds are manicured but the landscaping is straight out of a 1980’s apartment complex. Though the staff is amazing, the general manager does not seem to put an effort or emphasis on the atmosphere and maintenance of the property. There were propane tanks and empty planters throughout the property.

This property falls short at nearly every level except for the friendly staff. Had the MO or Amex FHR noted that the property was under construction I would have chosen the Ritz or the W which are in a better area and priced similarly.

The management acknowledged the hotels shortcomings and they were kind enough to buy us dinner which we apprehensively accepted due to the poor quality of the breakfast service. This hardly made up for the uncomfortable and disappointing stay. This property should not be branded a MO until the renovations are completed. I would look elsewhere if staying in Santiago.

To be honest my stay was just one night with Silver Sea cruises in preparation for a cruise to Antarctica. I have stayed at Mandarin's before and was looking forward to what their first property in S. America might be like. This complete renovation of an existing property is genius. There is no other possibility of accumulating enough land in such a prime location for new construction. The beautiful gardens and pool are would be impossible to replicate and the bones of the older property appeared ripe for a rehab. The rooms are large and in our case, had a bedroom with a few steps down to a living area. The contemporary style and decor were very well done and sleep quality was outstanding. I provided a four star rating only because they construction is still in progress.
On our return to the city we stayed at the Ritz. It is a landmark hotel also in a very desirable neighborhood but showing its need for significant updating The rooms were large, and peaceful but the outdoor space cannot compete with the Mandarin. When I return to Santiago the Mandarin would be my first choice providing that all the construction is completed

Dear Florida-Traveler-888, First of all, my apologies for this late answer, but there were some missing answers that we are updating now. We really appreciate the high rate you give us in spite of your comments about the renovation process. Indeed it was uncomfortable for some guests and we truly understand what you say. Nevertheless, we have advanced a lot in this process and we hope to finish very soon (the pandemia was not helpful at all). Our gardens and pool are still very appreciated for our visitors and wait to receive you when you visit Santiago again. Take good care of yourselves and hope to see you when the pandemia is under control. If you ask for me, it will be my pleasure to help you! Best regards, MARCELA FERREIRA Assistant to General Manager

The Mandarin Oriental is simply one of the best urban resort experiences that you can have. Perched high right in the middle of Los Condes, the hotel is perfectly located for a vacation in Santiago. It is walking distance to the financial district and the wonderfully entertaining Parque Arauco Mall, while only a 10 - 15 taxi ride to the city center and more historical sites. We stayed here for 7 nights as we made some day trips in and out of Santiago, which ended up being a perfect plan. The pool is large and spacious, so much so it's easy to forget you are in the middle of a massive city. The breakfast was absolutely delicious every morning and food was overall very good. The lobby and hotel, in general, is quite large but I always felt comfortable and invited. The rooms are spacious and most have incredible views of the surrounding Andes. If you can push your budget a bit, this hotel is completely worth it. Andres, Letois, and the rest of the front office staff made our stay easy and relaxing. Mandarin Oriental's first foreway into South America is a huge hit for me, and I will continue to recommend this hotel.

A gorgeous property with stunning architecture that comes up short with respect to housekeeping details. Our room on the 18th floor was spacious, modern and had a great view of the city and Andes. However, there were only two bath towels, one hand towel and one bath mat. At minimum, a second hand towel should have been provided, plus facecloths.

There was only one small bar of soap that you had to move from the bathroom sink to the shower and back again. There were three refillable bottles attached to the shower wall. One held conditioner and the other two had shampoo. I’m guessing one should have held liquid soap. (But that wouldn’t have done much good without a facecloth).

Missing the basic details are not what we expected from a luxury hotel. A number of our large travelling group had similar concerns.

The positives:

The swimming pool (complete with waterfall) and garden area are amazing. An unexpected oasis in the centre of a big city.

The sushi restaurant in the hotel offered creative and delicious menu options - well worth trying.

This Marriott requires only a little more attention to basic housekeeping to make it memorable - for the right reasons.

We stayed 2 nights in a terrace room. The reception staff was very kind to get our room ready early as we arrived after 24 hours of travel at 7:30 am. The concierge was also lovely and very helpful; recommended a really great restaurant which was exactly what we wanted. The room itself is beautifully appointed and the bathroom was wonderful. Nice shower and bathtub with excellent lighting. The bed was very comfortable with nice pillows

Having said this, the sofa was so filthy I would have needed to change rooms had I not had the terrace. The patio furniture was nice but really beat up. The sliding glass door was so dirty it was barely transparent from years of condensation trapped between the panes. And who knows what the other myriad of stains dripping down it were.

There were a lot of little things that don’t happen in a five star hotel and there were no nice little touches that always happen.

If not for the terrace I would stay elsewhere next time.
