Trained to seek out soaring skyscraper hotels in boomtown Santiago, we almost missed this 31-room charmer in the leafy Providencia neighborhood. Behind Le Rêve’s scaled-back sensibility is Chilean-born designer Sergio Echeverria, who used classic furnishings (claw-foot velvet settees; gold-framed historical French maps) to create a residential feel. What sold us were the boutique hotel’s thoughtful touches: delicate local lavender Ôrigen soaps and a help-yourself pantry for late-night cravings.
Room to Book:
Room 210 for the pair of floor-to-ceiling French doors (one opens onto a patio, the other offers views of the 90-year-old avocado tree from the bathroom).
Providencia’s Museo de la Moda—just a 10-minute taxi ride from the hotel—is one of the city’s most notable new attractions.
