Holiday Inn Santiago Airport
 
Location: *** Great location, the hotel is linked to the terminal by a walkway
Spotting: ** High level rooms facing away from the terminal building offer limited views of the approaches/climb out and taxiways. SBS would probably be required to help identification.
Photos: *  It is difficult to take decent pictures from anything but wide-bodies, as you are exactly in between the 2 parallel runways, rather distant, shooting above a lot of concrete (heat distortion), and the rooms have heavily tinted windows. A photo spot is in walking distance from the hotel at abeam RW27R, this spot is suitable for departure shots in the morning with a minimum 130mm lens required.
Value: * Expect to pay around £110 a room per night
Book:   The hotel can be booked through  Holiday Inn – Click Here
