Departing later today via United Airlines from Newark to Houston, then connecting again to United non stop to the beautiful city of Santiago, Chile. A vibrant and sophisticated city; Santiago Chile is located in the country’s central valley. It is the capital and largest city in Chile. Santiago offers a wonderful blend of modern architecture together with 19th century neoclassic, gothic and art-deco styles as well. I am looking forward to returning to Santiago again after many years. Also this visit to Santiago is a brief stopover on my way to Mendoza, Argentina which is only a very short flight; about 45 minutes. Mendoza, Argentina is the location of our 62nd UICH Les Clefs d’Or International Congress. Hundreds of our hotel concierge colleagues, friends, partners and sponsors will gather in Mendoza next week for our annual business meetings, educational forum, and networking with our friends, sponsors, partners and colleague worldwide in the true spirit of our profound motto: “In Service Through Friendship.”
During my brief visit to Santiago, Chile I will stay at the beautiful W Santiago Hotel offering spectacular urban views surrounded by the snow-capped Andes Mountains. Thank you to my dear friend and colleague, Andres Vergara, Chef Concierge of the W Santiago Hotel and President of The Concierge Society of Chile. I am looking forward to seeing all of our concierge colleagues worldwide who are also stopping over in Santiago on the way to Mendoza.
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon and Vive Les Clefs d’Or!!!
