Co-developed by Houston-based Intergroup Development, the Grand Hyatt was one of the first two Hyatt hotels introduced into South America by Intergroup which later advised the ownership group in the sale of the hotel as part of a three-hotel portfolio transaction.
Acknowledged as one of Santiago's finest hotels, Grand Hyatt Santiago, formerly the Hyatt Regency Santiago, is located in an exclusive residential neighborhood, 20 minutes away from Santiago city center and within easy access of Santiago's international and domestic airports.

Grand Hyatt Santiago's accommodations comprises 310 guest rooms and suites all of which offer stunning views of Santiago and the Andes Mountains. The hotel facilities include Hyatt's Club Olympus, a fully equipped gymnasium with aerobics room, sauna, tennis courts, lagoon-style swimming pool and the hotel's exclusive Beauty Centre for a variety of relaxation and beauty treatments. Grand Hyatt Santiago's dining options include three international restaurants and two bars, which are very popular with hotel guests and the local community, all with outside terraces overlooking the hotel's lush resort-like gardens.
