The eleven-story building boasts 207 rooms, including 44 executive rooms, 17 suites and a presidential suite. The hotel’s décor is an eclectic combination of Peruvian motifs with modern twists. The Lobby, public areas, and guest rooms all feature artisan lattice woodwork that complements the earth toned colored furniture creating a welcoming ambiance.

Favorite Item to Take Home

The eye-catching unusually shaped crystal chandeliers in the lobby entrance would be the item to pack and take home!

Fellow Travelers

The hotel seems to be a favorite with business travelers though we encountered several families with kids the week we stayed there.

Before We Arrived

I did call the hotel before our arrival to let them know of our feather allergy and ask for a quiet room for my son with autism. On both our stays when we first arrived from L.A as well as when we returned from Cusco for an additional night our rooms were ready, feather- free and on a top floor facing a nonbusy street just like we requested.

Our Welcome

Check-in was a breeze. We were warmly welcomed by hotel staff and even treated to a morning cappuccino while the front desk staff was filling the necessary paperwork.

Our Guest Room

The Peruvian woodcarvings that ornate the modern hotel lobby and public areas are continued into the room creating an elegant focal point. The well-lit room we stayed at on the executive floor was sparkly clean and had two queen sized (perfect for a family of four). It also boasted a nice sized desk with chair, a mini sitting area and a stylish small side table. The glass encased 37’’ HDTV in the wall provided the wow factor and gave the room a futuristic look. The closet with built in drawers, though on the smaller side was sufficient for our clothes and suitcases.  The room safe supplied was large enough to fit our I- pads and a mini laptop and was placed at a convenient height. For additional comfort, there was a single-serve coffee maker, free water bottles replenished daily, a snack tray and mini bar fridge stocked with drinks.

The fast Wi-Fi throughout the hotel with no device limitation made our life comfortable and helped avoid unnecessary bickering about who gets to register their device to the room. The room also came with multiple places to recharge electronics including a quad charging station at the desk.

The Bathroom

The marble tiled bathroom was nicely sized and functional with large countertops to spread our cosmetics and sundries.The dual showerhead system made showering easy and comfortable for all us including my son with autism. The bathrobes and towels were fluffy and smelled fresh; Housekeeping promptly brought up extra ones every time we requested any.We also enjoyed the supplied toiletries and plush slippers that were restocked on a daily basis. Our personal favorite was the massaging soap (my son took two home) and the mini scissors that are useful and can pass even the TSA inspection.


We observed multiple safety features throughout the property that were useful for traveling families including much-needed child proof locks on the balcony doors and the requirement of a room key to take the elevators to the different floors.

The Executive Lounge

The bright, spacious room on the top floor offering light snacks and beverages throughout the day was my kids’ favorite. Decorated in neutral colors, it boasted several eating spots, workstations and even an area with board games. Though breakfast was offered in the downstairs dining area, we preferred using the lounge since it was more quiet and intimate environment. The ultra-accommodating staff brought additional omelets, pancakes and French toast daily at my kids’ request from the downstairs kitchen. Special thanks to Ms. Giannuzzi for was incredibly patient and took the time to answer all my son’s questions. What we especially liked about this lounge was the plethora of food choices served throughout the day along with the fact that they were regularly replenished. The lounge offers continuous service from 6:30 to 11 pm every day with an honor bar between 5 -10 pm.

Other Amenities

The hotel has a specialty restaurant featuring Peruvian American fusion fare and one of the most mentionable rooftops terraces I seen in the last decade offering hotel patrons stunning views of Lima.


We loved the personalized attention the staff showered upon us and the super-friendly manager who took the time to get to chat and get to know us. We were also grateful for the concierge  Mr. Rivas, who helped in procuring last-minute restaurant reservations as well as recommending sites to see.

Autism Travel Tips

The staff was incredibly patient with our son and even prepared his ‘special’ omelet every morning. We found the saucer shaped lighted mirror helpful not only for bathroom purposes but as a night-light. [[mappress mapid=”38″]  ]]>
