Hotel Portillo - Chile - Ski Resort

Rooms & Suites: 123

Portillo is the oldest ski area in South America, and its history holds an important place in the legend of skiing.

It is a history of adventurers and the Andes, and of dreams and accomplishments in the wonderful world of skiing. Portillo is unique because there is no town and only one hotel: the grand Hotel Portillo, which has 123 rooms. In this regard, the Portillo skiing and resort experience is unlike that of any other commercial ski resort. Hotel Portillo's rooms are cozy and warm. There are a variety of room types, including: doubles, family apartments and suites. Some of the rooms have a mountain view from the valley side while the rest have a view of the lake. The lake view is especially spectacular. Our rooms do not have TV. Instead, we encourage our guests to take part in our many activities, to utilize the facilities, and to disconnect from the day-to-day routine. Rooms come with telephones, safes, hairdryers, mini-bars, and Internet access (Portillo has Wi-Fi connection throughout the hotel as well as a modern Internet Room). Chile uses 220 volts, so be sure to bring a transformer if you bring your own electronics. The housekeeping staff acts as your personal valets, and they will help you with whatever you need, whether it is a band-aid, laundry or a mending job. Housekeepers live on each floor.
