Went on a little trip a while back to Santiago, Chile and did a little summer skiing. What a wonderful city! And what a fabulous hotel the Ritz-Carlton there turned out to be. All of the staff literally bent over backwards to make sure pretty little me had a great trip. If you ever want to feel like an absolute Princess I highly recommend it. Cinderella’s fairy godmother’s got nothing on the people working at the Ritz Santiago. They waved their magic wands to satisfy my every whim more times than I can count.
The concierge at the Ritz was absolutely infallible in his recommendations for restaurants in the city. One of my favs was a smashingly fun place with super Chilean cuisine called Liguria. It seems I should have checked my favourite travel site, World’s Best Bars, before I left. I will hold a place in my heart for the concierge forever just for that one recommendation alone.
Something else about the Santiago Ritz is that it has the most amazing roof top hot tub/pool/bar . Check out this review on another WordPress.com blog. The first night I was there I put on my bikini with these super-sexy red patent leather Jessica Simpson heels, wrapped up in my Ritz-Carlton robe and headed up to check out the serious luxury of the hot tub. I grabbed myself a glass of champagne at the bar located conveniently by the pool, traipsed through the red rose petals that a staff member so thoughtfully scattered to match my high heels and settled in for a good soak amongst the candle light. When I got back to my room I was so sleepy I crawled into bed still wearing my shoes to have a nap…but not before I managed to snap this cute picture.
One more thing about Santiago that I have to tell you. Every woman on the street was wearing a pair of sexy boots. Sure it was winter there so boots were in season, but I’ve never seen so many women in one place wearing consistently stylish boots. Wow would all you boot lovin’ men out there be in heaven!
