Lima: 5 Places to Stay
JW Marriott Hotel
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.
