Official star rating:
With wonderful views from rooms and public areas, a first-class modern Peruvian restaurant run by famous chef Rafael Piqueras and a great location in the gastronomic hub of San Isidro, the Westin is the best contemporary high-rise hotel in Lima.
Bedrooms are bright, with huge wall-high windows, framing the best views of Lima’s skyline from any hotel. There’s a huge, sumptuous blue-mosaic indoor pool fed by indoor waterfalls, and a Buddha-filled spa, offering an array of massages and hydrotherapy.
Run by star chef Rafael Piqueras, the Maras restaurant is a destination in its own right. Be sure to try the Causa Trio – uniquely Peruvian pureed vegetables with ceviche, ciringuito and dill-infused salmon.
The hotel sits in fashionable San Isidro district, close to the best restaurants in Lima’s burgeoning gastronomic scene – including award-winning Astrid y Garcon and and Osso. One of Lima’s fast urban highways is close to the lobby, affording easy access to the city centre, airport and beyond.
