JW Marriott El Convento

Esquina de la Calle Ruinas 432 y San Agustin, Cusco - Peru

The JW Marriott hotel received a lot of press in Cusco while it was being built – not only being part of a worldwide chain of hotels known for luxury - but it was built atop ancient Incan ruins and situated around a 16th-century convent.

Exceptional attention to detail has meant that the 21st Century meets the 16th Century in a melding of good taste – the lobby, restaurants and guest areas are vibrant, and rich to the point of being decadent. With exceptional customer service there is no doubt you are in a 5 star hotel, with such highly polished atmosphere. Restaurants are world class with the Pirqa Restaurant gaining a reputation as one of Cusco's finest dining experiences.

The 150 rooms at JW Marriott Cusco feature amenities like sumptuous marble bathrooms, breathtaking courtyard views, and plush bedding. We recommend a courtyard or terrace view for extra views.
