JW Marriott El Convento Cusco: Peru's Luxury Hotel That Moonlights As A Museum
As you enter the amber-hued lobby of the JW Marriott El Convento Cusco, you’re greeted by a friendly, bilingual staff for sure. But it’s the sparkling crystals which dangle behind the reception desk that set the tone. The stunning piece of décor, composed of 6,000 Swarovski crystals, was created in homage to the Incan sun god Inti.
The crystal sun could just as well be a tribute to the Gods of Pampering who have decreed that you shall check-in to live piano music while relaxing in front of the living room fireplace, and warming up further with a cup of coca tea. The tea, of course, helps acclimate you to the nearly 12,000-foot Andean elevation, as will the oxygen pumped into the 153 rooms that keeps you breathing comfy.
