Hyatt Centric Las Condes Santiago offers 166 guest rooms featuring a high-style, eclectic design and modern furnishings with local Chilean craftsmanship. Floor-to-ceiling windows invite guests to take in skyline views of the hotel’s unbeatable location right in the center of Santiago’s financial district, locally known as “Sanhattan.” Its signature restaurant, Talbó Brasserie, presents upscale, authentic Chilean cuisine with a French influence, impressing both guests and local community alike. For moments of relaxation, guests are invited to take in panoramic skyline views of the Andes Mountains from the striking rooftop bar and outdoor pool. For meetings and events, Hyatt Centric Las Condes Santiago offers up to 7,100 square feet of flexible, technology-equipped space and the support of a dedicated meetings and events staff.

The hotel’s signature restaurant, Isidro Bistro Limeño, is a Peruvian-French bistro concept created uniquely for the hotel by Corporate Executive Chef Carlos Testino in collaboration with Grupo Aramburu. At sunset, guests can find themselves enjoying tapas and craft cocktails at Celeste Solar Bar, the perfect rooftop bar to admire spectacular city views and lounge at the rooftop pool.
