Marriott recently sold the Sheraton BA, it was one of the last owned properties they inherited from Starwood:

I wouldn't be shocked if there are some changes at that property with the new owners.

Starwood sold the Santiago property in 2015. The new owners are now building a big residential tower on an undeveloped portion of the land:

Is the wine in the Sheraton club lounge only served from the waiter? or is it self-serve, too? I find club lounges in South America to not be very generous in this regard.

I am current PL but will move down to gold effective 2/1/19.

I am part of a large group staying at the Santiago Sheraton Hotel & Convention Center toward the end of February.

Prior to the merger, even some Marriott properties gave lounge access to golds outside the USA. My impression of this Sheraton is that golds would not be given lounge access, but I would like to know for sure before trying to determine the best way forward.

Are San Cristobal Tower rooms still sold as a separate brand? While I know the hotel itself is integrated into Sheraton, the tower is still completely separate with a private entrance and check-in area. As a Platinum Premier, I was put in the main tower with access to the lounge, but I can't figure out what makes that separate tower so premium?

Just completed a points stay as a Titanium Member.
Took airport bus to city center($3), purchased some items, then uber to hotel ($5). (uber is abundant and inexpensive)
9 am check in (I emailed in advance) and 4pm checkout (did not need, but was given anyways).
Upgraded to the Tower, high floor, city view.
Room decor is classic luxury (gold trim, dark carved wood, marble,etc), I personally prefer modern minimalist, but overall very comfortable.
Staff is very professional.
Complimentary access to lounge in tower, full buffet breakfast, including cooked to order eggs.
Welcome amenity is choice of 1,000 points or bottle of wine in room or fruit.
The basement gym is large, indoor heated pool, steam room. All good, a bit dated, but clean and functional.
Free wifi which fast in room, poor in lounge
Lounge located in 21st floor.
All day coffee machine, fruit, water and cookies.
Afternoon snacks from 6-8pm with very attentive wait staff. +6 Hot dishes, plus another +6 cold choices, very good, was enough for dinner.
Had complimentary wine and pisco sour which we had plenty (full cash bar for anything else, even beer).
Nice panoramic views at dusk.
Again, staff was very attentive and generous with refills;
Full buffet breakfast was also very generous.
Location in Providencia provided panoramic views, we were able to walk to Cerro San Cristobal where you can take cable car to top of hill where Statue is located.
20 minute walk to Metro
Overall nice stay, comfortable room, professional staff, good lounge.

Sounds like the Sheraton is a solid hotel. Any opinions vs the Renaissance? Looking at a 2-night stay for tourist purposes.
