Luxury hotel options have just expanded as Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has added Palacio del Inka, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Cusco to its family. On the heels of a $15 million renovation, the hotel is ready to welcome a new generation of luxury travelers to the ancient Peruvian city. The stunning hotel has a rich history in the city as a part of Incan civilization in the 15th century and housing the Spanish in the 16th century. Today, the hotel has a striking Spanish Colonial façade, but has been designed and updated by Caparra Entelman & Asociados who also worked with local craftsmen. The stunning property has 203 guestrooms with 17 suites. The ancient walls remain intact and the hotel reflects the history of the area with new custom furnishings as it reflects Cusco’s diverse culture, architecture and design. Previously a favorite hotel for backpackers, the hotel is now a perfect way for luxury travelers to experience the flavors of the Latin American destination.
