Lima's only Marriott hotel is a gleaming, green-glass 25-story tower on the Malecón in Miraflores. All the rooms — from the standard double to the presidential suite (the preferred choice of rock stars and other celebrities visiting Lima) — have spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. Making its location even better, the JW Marriott is just steps away from one of Lima's main tourist attractions, Larcomar, a huge complex of shops, restaurants, a movie theater, pool hall and bowling alley. If that isn't enough entertainment for you, the hotel also has a casino.

Room to Book: It's all about the view here, so if you want a great one ask for an Ocean Front suite.

Insider Tip: The JW Marriott has one of best gyms in the city, with weight and aerobics machines, complimentary trainer services and exercise classes — not to mention the six-mile Malecón just out the front door, which is perfect for jogging. There's also a swimming pool and tennis courts, and a menu of spa services. If you're a fitness freak, this is the right place for you.
