The JW Marriott El Convento Cuzco is a former 16th-century convent full of pre-Inca, Inca and colonial artefacts. Elegantly styled, it is one of Cuzco’s few hotels that has a pool. Its impressive interiors feature exposed brick, vaulted ceilings and sleek furniture. Less than 5 minutes’ walk from the Plaza de Armas, it is within walking distance of Cuzco’s many restaurants, shops and places of interest. Despite its central location El Convento retains a tranquil atmosphere tucked away within its Inca walls. Walls within the public areas are adorned with art work of contemporary Peruvian artists in a rotating exhibition. Rooms are stylish with dark hardwood flooring, all with TV’s, iPod docking stations, soundproofed windows and spacious marble bathrooms. There is a fine dining restaurant serving local Andean dishes and a bar serving drinks and snacks.
