Directions to JW Marriott Cusco
It has not always been the case, but these days a good luxury hotel is, almost by definition, a hotel with a history, or at least, a hotel with a bit of character. Ergonomic mattresses, large high-tech screens and shoe cleaning service are a certainty in the hotel, but for sure, what makes the difference The JW Marriott Cusco is the environment and location it offers. Located about 3,400 meters above the sea, in the heart of the historic center of Cusco, a few blocks from the Plaza de Armas, the JW occupies the site of an old convent of the 16th century that was built on ruins Of the Incas. It took the Marriott team almost six years to renovate - and largely rebuild - the original building. The result after all has been really impressive, combining a strong legacy of history with the modern and bright interiors of a luxury boutique hotel.
Jw marriott cusco
In case it is not clear, JW is the luxury boutique line of the Marriott hotel chain. And if a hotel brand of high prestige like this is installed in a place that not long ago was an archeological site, there is something to be said about its boldness and project execution. All of which is a fairly abstract way of saying that the rooms are well designed, the service is professional and the most necessary luxuries are included. There is a full-service spa with Inca-inspired treatments, a couple of quite casual but ambitious Peruvian food restaurants and a bar that serves phenomenal pisco cocktails. The hotel also also has business and meeting facilities for the lucky business traveler whose obligations bring him to Cusco — a truly picturesque city full of history and adventure.
It is quite clear, then, that the sense of atmosphere that the hotel radiates is quite strong. Well, the hotel itself has been built around one of the largest and most traditional cobbled patios in the city and keeps within itself a strong feeling of a timeless Cusco. Some of the rooms incorporate ancient Inca masonry and colonial walls kept in touch with the original structures, while others have terraces overlooking the old cloisters of the convent. But the timeless sensation does not fade when you leave the hotel, because, just outside the door of the hotel is one of the cities with the greatest historical wealth in the Americas and with Machu Picchu at a close distance to the beyond.
