The colonial-style building, built in 1943, is chic, swanky, and completely out of place in simple Huánuco, which explains the business travelers wandering its wide halls. Rooms, with private baths and hot water, are modern and eclectic. Some rooms overlook the plaza, but beware of noise on mornings and weekends. Public areas are opulent yet intimate, with corners to relax in and have a quiet conversation. The courtyard pool, sauna, and gym provide respite for those returning from long day tours of the surrounding pampas.The kitchen of the Majestuoso restaurant ($) is by far the best in town and serves everything from regional to international dishes.
