We checked in on Sept 15th, the opening day for the hotel. This is not your traditional Marriott. The hotel is absolutely stunning! The common areas are exquisitely decorated with antiques, period artwork and artifacts. The entire hotel is very tastefully decorated and classy.
Located in the historical center, the hotel is close to the major historical Cusco sites and many of the popular restaurants.
The hotel took eight years to build and the original Inca walls are visible in the basement.
The rooms are decent size, nicely furnished with a very comfortable bed, a marble bathroom and hardwood floors. Most importantly, the rooms are quiet. Previously, we stayed in a 5 star Cusco hotel and heard road traffic all night.
The hotel staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. The breakfast buffet is exceptional and a great value at $19.
Having seen or stayed at their competition, my guess is this is probably the best hotel in Cusco.
