With a  late arrival into Santiago, I was mildly concerned that I’d get a shonky room in the hotel.  I needn’t have worried, I’d been upgraded to a corner suite – frankly, because I think the hotel was fairly empty in the run up to the Easter holidays.

The room was nicely appointed – a super comfortable bed and good quality linens.

Crowne Plaza had provided a small gift bag with some snacks and a bottle of water.

Good wardrobe space with all the facilities you might need… except no ice machine ANYWHERE in the hotel.  Room service could bring ice, meaning a tip every time.

There was a coffee machine and no coffee (I did manage to score some decaf coffee – although I’d have preferred full strength – by heavily tipping the housekeeper).

Excellent, a safe for all my electronic what nots!

I love having a fridge in the room, even if it means I can only fit in some water and a yogurt, it makes a place feel more like home!

Ice bucket! No ice machine 😦

The freebie shampoos and conditioners were fair quality – better than the previous hotel I’d been to in Argentina, and the shower was spotlessly clean.  Good work, Crowne Plaza!
