Following years of careful renovation and rebuilding, Palazio Nazarenas is one of Cusco's most glamorous hotels. A former palace and convent dating to the 18th century, the hotel is just off the Plaza de Armas, close to the cathedral and major museums. Fifty-five spacious, locally inspired suites surround seven cloistered terraces. Each room is enriched with oxygen (upon request, no fee) to assist with altitude acclimatization and features a satellite TV, complimentary Wi-Fi, and an iPad preloaded with a city guide and hotel information. Deluxe suites, known as the Z Collection, include original Inca and colonial features, special views, and/or beautiful balconies. Additional luxuries on the property include Cusco's first heated outdoor pool and a sensational restaurant and bar specializing in fine regional cuisine. The authentic Andean- and Incan-inspired spa uses therapeutic, organic local ingredients like pink Andean salt, purple corn, honey, coffee, and coca leaves.
