Sonesta Announces 7th Hotel In Peru - Sonesta Hotel Cusco
BOSTON (January 4, 2010) -- Sonesta International Hotels Corporation announced its seventh hotel in Peru, the 127-room Sonesta Hotel Cusco. This full-service hotel is located in the midst of business, shopping, restaurants and historic attractions in downtown Cusco. The hotel is located across the street from the handcraft market on the Avenue Sol, just a few blocks from the main square. This hotel (and its sister properties in Peru, Colombia and Chile) are the result of a strong relationship between GHL Hoteles and Sonesta.
“We at Sonesta are excited to bring another full-service business class hotel to our collection in South America,” said Stephanie Sonnabend, president and chief executive office for Sonesta. “We have not been able to accommodate all of our business or leisure guests interested in staying with us in Cusco, and have been eager to add more rooms in this great destination for a number of years.”
The Sonesta Hotel Cusco features contemporary guest rooms with first class amenities, a full service business center, three meal a day restaurant, room service, 24-hour concierge service, WiFi throughout the hotel, a banquet room for receptions for up to 100 guests, and several meeting rooms for 30 guests theater-style. The hotel joins the 23-room Sonesta Posadas del Inca Cusco located just a few blocks away.
Located in the ancient Inca and Spanish Colonial capital of Cusco, the hotel is near historic points of interest including Machu Picchu, Koricancha Temple, Sacsayhuamán, Kenko, Puca Pucará, Ollantaytambo, the Inca Trail, Tambomachay. Cusco was declared a World Heritage Site and offers both colonial cathedrals and ancient temples that celebrate its storied past. The hotel is just minutes from Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport.
