JW Marriott El Convento Cusco

A former 16th-century convent packed with pre-Inca, Inca and colonial artefacts, JW Marriott El Convento feels as much like a trendy museum as it does a modern hotel.

A former 16th-century convent packed with pre-Inca, Inca and colonial artefacts, JW Marriott El Convento feels as much like a trendy museum as it does a modern hotel. Elegantly styled and boasting one of Cusco’s only hotel pools, this property impresses across the board. Throughout, the hotel is covered in the work of contemporary Peruvian artists. Rooms are sleek and stylish, with dark hardwood flooring, crisp linen and bespoke furnishings, with the overall feeling one of quality and sophistication. Bathrooms are clad in slabs of sandy travertine marble, sourced from quarries in central Peru. The fine dining restaurant takes pride in using local Peruvian ingredients, and its organic Andean specialities are particularly sumptuous.
