Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Libertador Palacio del Inka
Plazoleta Santo Domingo 259, Cusco, Cusco, Peru
Close enough, but still removed from the hubbub of the Plaza de Armas, this hotel has made the most of its gorgeous colonial past while upgrading its room design. Located on the tiny Plazoleta Santo Domingo, it was the last home of Francisco Pizarro, the first governor of Peru. The place is huge without seeming so, and has both colonial and modern wings. The colonial rooms are lush as befits the era, many with original furniture; the rooms in the modern wing all have colonial touches, and every room features central heating to keep out the chill. Stop at the plush bar for a mean pisco sour, and browse through the lobby's original art and paintings from the Cusqueña school.
