JW Marriott Hotel Lima
Travel Blogs from Lima
Hello Again, All,
We got up at 2:45 a.m. to have breakfast and get to the airport for our 6:00 a.m. flight to Lima. Yikes! Early, early…… But the good part is that we had a whole day in Lima, arriving at the J. W. Marriott Hotel before 9:00 a.m. We were sent to the club floor lounge to await our room which was to be ready …
We arrived by plane in Lima from Cusco and got a taxi to our hotel - the JW Marriott in Miraflores, one of the nicest neighborhoods of Lima, right on the Pacific coast. Using Marriott points, we´d stayed at Marriotts for eight of the first 14 nights of the trip, and it was awesome. The Marriotts were all really nice - JW or Renaissance, which are …
So after a week of planing this trip with one of my buddys, a month of getting the necessary shots in the ass and arm, we are packed up and ready to go. Our flight is at 2am in the morning. We land in Costa Rica for a connecting flight and hang out in the termainal for a couple of hours. This is around the time the swine flu was at a feverd pitch, …
This week has been full of new experiences but yesterday was awesome and overwhelming at the same time. I'm sitting here looking out at the pacific ocean drinking peruvian coffee. Yesterday morning I was looking out over the ocean from a shanty town. Uncle Oliver drove us to a church that has a children's ministry. We picked up the local pastor and …
Our first stop is Lima Peru. We flew from LAX to Miami and caught a red eye to Lima arriving on Thursday at 5am...Got to our hotel and went looking for desayuno...Rita took out way too much money from the ATM (1 Soles = 3 USD...but i think i had it backwards) and left her card in the machine...luckily, it was still there when she went back for it …

Historical Traveler Reviews JW Marriott Hotel Lima
Loved the hotel. The beds were some of the hardest I have ever slept on. I felt very safe staying here. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Love the JW Marriott
I stayed at the JW Marriott Dec 3-4, 2005 - Great Hotel, Great Location, Loved the room-great bathroom w/a hairdryer. Ask for a water view rooms. No coffee pot in room. Restaurant-has a good Sunday brunch. Lobby bar is nice. Staff speaks English very well. Good security around hotel.
The hotel is across the street from a shopping center and lots of restaurants. Take a cab to the Indian Market if you want to shop cheap and don't forget your USD's. Lots of small bills. There is an ATM close by in case you need it....
Home away from home in a complicated city
Loved the hotel. First thing you'll notice is it's location in front of a park/mall perched on a cliff with expansive views of the Pacific Coast.
Although your typical business-oriented hotel, it was a welcome respite coming/going to other parts of the country. Really felt like home.
Loved the rooms - especially the massive bathrooms. They also have a very extensive gym in their premises. One of the best ones I've seen in any hotel.
The restaurants look good but lacked any ambiance nor life. You'll do better by trying out restaurants across Lima (the city is famous for its food) or just cross the street and check out the places in the mall overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
I experienced a very disturbing incident that took place at the JW Marriott property in Lima, Peru on Tuesday, November 15, 2005 (my 37th birthday).
Relaxing place to stay
We stayed here at the end of our trip and found it to be a very relaxing, safe, well appointed, luxurious hotel. Enjoyed the food served in the club. Service was fine. Pricey but worth the comfort after a long trip. Clean.
Americana galore. You have the security, the amenities, and the English. But there's no way you can sleep in the hardest beds I've ever encountered. When I complained at the Front Desk, they explained that the hotel was furnished with these beds in June, and yes, they had received complaints. But basicly, "tough luck." I was also surprised by the number of tour buses making this hotel a frequent stop.
I had a wonderful time in this hotel from the food to the activites.
The location is breathtaking, overall Peru was a wonderful country with very pleasent people. We toured all of Peru from the Andes, to the Amazon, Coast it was absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel and country..
Like Being in San Diego
If you're going to Peru on vacation, you'll want to spend as little time as possible in Lima. The hotel itself is a calm American bubble, which is either good or bad, depending on your intention. Yes, you're safe--except from American hotel price gouging.
We'd heard Mira Flores derisively called a kind of the yuppie enclave. But, it wasn't even that nice. Order was kept by having lots of soldiers. Lots of signs telling people to muzzle their dogs. The glitz of the waterfront faded quickly, after just a block or two inland.
Perfect after a long hard tour.
We stayed here after a 2 week tour of Peru, and after doing all the hard stuff, and suffering for it we thought we disserved a treat, Well worth the money and if nothing else I would recommend the Marriott for the location alone, which is in the nicest part of Lima and there are not many nice parts. Food and service are a barging compared to what you would pay in other countries, I highly recommend the Sunday lunch which is a huge buffet and unlimited champagne for £20 which is very expensive by Peru standards but a barging compared to the UK. If eating out just cross the road and go down the steps to Larco Mar for a great view of the Ocean in a safe atmosphere.
