One of Lima's most exclusive and sophisticated properties is this sparkling high-rise hotel. Formerly the Peruvian-owned Oro Verde, it takes its pedigree as part of the international Swissôtel chain very seriously: The hotel is very Continental classy. The lobby is awash in fine carpets, corridors are curiously lined with giant neoclassical columns, restaurants serve Swiss and Italian as well as Peruvian fare, and service is, of course, eminently efficient. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed. Executive rooms include a work desk, two telephone lines, a coffee machine, a private executive lounge/boardroom, and cocktails(!). For business facilities, this property rivals the Marriott and Miraflores Park Hotel, although I find the last the most distinguished of the three. Value rates and packages are often available.
