As well as occupying the site of a 16th century convent, the Cusco’s JW Marriott hotel was also originally constructed atop ancient Inca foundations. These ruins have been remarkably well-preserved and can still be viewed within the hotel itself, adding a fascinating dimension to a stay here. The sensitive restoration of the building has ensured that these striking historic features blend sensitively with modern comforts in a luxurious, understated style. All rooms and suites feature marble bathrooms, high quality linens and all the other amenities you would expect from a hotel in this group (though it is worth bearing in mind that the standard ‘Inca wall’ view rooms do just that – facing directly onto one the historical walls!) The hotel enjoys a prime location a short walk from Cusco’s central Plaza de Armas, meaning you can enjoy a variety of restaurants, bars, markets and other attractions within easy reach.
