The W hotel's path to total world domination continues with the opening of the W Santiago. This stunning property is a "modern take on the varied Chilean landscape by New York designer Tony Chi and native Chilean designer Sergio Echeverria," according to the press release.
The room in the photo above reminds us of the Standard New York, with its wall-sized windows and prominent bath tub.
One enters the property through a 90 foot wide private, gated entrance with 50-foot trees cultivated from southern Chile with music and sound effects to evoke the feeling of home through the sounds of Chile.
The highlight of the Living Room is a massive “Drum Wall” made of sheepskin for guests to “play.”
On the rooftop, you'll find Red2 One, a Gerber Group bar with breathtaking views of the Andes along with a heated rooftop pool.
The W in Barcelona also recently opened (check back next week for photos). Vieques is next on the W's list--the hotel on the Puerto Rican island is slated to open on November 19.
