The JW Marriott El Convento is one of the top luxury hotel in Cuzco, Perú. This property occupies the premises of the old Convent of San Agustín, a XVII century Spanish colonial convent in Cuzco’s historic district. The hotel offers 146 rooms and 7 suites, all of them providing a supplemental oxygen system to prevent undesirable high-altitude sickness effects among its guests. The hotel also features a spa, a Peruvian food restaurant and a museum exhibiting historical pieces found during the building restoriation.
The building is listed as a national historical monument since 1972, and since 1983 it belongs to the city’s central area declared Cultural World Herritage by UNESCO. Restoration works started in 2006 and lasted until 2012, when the hotel was opened to the public.
There is no description of the suite on the hotel’s website, but here are some images of the Luxury Suite:
Here is our video review and commentary on this Luxury Suite:
Cuzco is a great base camp or starting/ending point for those looking to visit the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu, but it’s also a beautiful historical city on its own. This property offers a nice luxury experience for those looking for high-end accommodation in the city
Redemption-wise, there is great value on this property. As a Category 5, it can be booked for as low as 24,000 points per night during off-peak season using the 5th night free benefit, especially considering that their classic rooms sell north of $250++ per night. Also a good place to try to use those suite night upgrades (if they were useful!).
