After enjoying several different hotels throughout Peru, we arrived in Aguas Calientes to top off our vacation with a visit to Machu Picchu. Despite a last-minute itinerary change due to inclement weather, we arrived at the train station to find a Sumac representative waiting with a name card for us, to guide us to the hotel. What an unexpected and pleasant surprise! The fact that both breakfast AND a gourmet, three-course dinner were included with our room price was another added bonus. The staff is terrific, the accommodations are the finest we enjoyed in Peru (and that is saying something!), and the location (overlooking the Urubamba River) is perfect. This is a terrific complement to one of the world's seven wonders, with every thoughtful detail imaginable in place. I can't imagine staying anywhere else while visiting this famed city of the Inca Empire!
