The hotel is extremely nice and the staff were polite and helpful. They upgraded me to a Penthouse without even asking me and it was a three room suite with a sauna, shower and hot tub bath. It was great, especially after the five day Andes Trek I had just completed in the Sacred Valley. They may have upgraded me since I'm a Hilton Honors Diamond Platinum member but it was a nice surprise when I checked in. It's roughly a two minute walk to the cafe's and restaurants in downtown Miraflores, which is great considering much of Lima's nightlife is centralized there. It's safe and the staff was very professional. I had a red eye from Lima to Miami on the night of my second day there and they allowed me to stay in my room until about 8pm when normal checkout time was 12pm or 2pm...they were very accomodating and the room service was also good. They arranged for a car service to the airport but it was almost $50 as opposed to a "normal" cab, which was about $35. Some people warned me about taking normal cabs in Lima, but I found them to be fine (maybe a little cramped, I'm 6'1). The drivers rarely speak English, but they were more than willing to speak broken Spanish with me and explain a bit about some of the neighborhoods in Lima. It was a great leisure stay and I can imagine it would be a great place for business as well.
