Chile wines in the Santiago Bristol

There isn't a Hotel Bristol in Santiago, Chile, but there is a Bristol Restaurant in the Hotel Plaza San Francisco in downtown Santiago, and here, once again, the annual wine fair has just taken place. Fifty wineries were represented, and chef Axel Manriquez provided appetizers to add to to the Aroma Tables.

Babymoon at the Kempinski Bristol

The word 'babymoon' to describe a period when a couple expecting a baby takes a break for the last time in quite a while has only come into circulation in the past few years. It's an ideal tag for hotels to hang a package on. The Kempinski Hotel Bristol in Berlin is offering a Deluxe Babymoon Package that includes two nights and days of pampering - breakfast in bed, candelit dinners, steam baths, limousine tours - plus a present of Baby Bathrobe and Slippers to take home for later. It costs from 319 euros per person for the 2-night stay.
