From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
A blending of contemporary design and a historic foundation sets this 16-suite mansion in the artsy San Blas district apart from the grand colonial hotels like the Monasterio a few doors down. A grass courtyard, anchored by a glowing sphere, is the heart of the seventeenth-century property built for the Encomendador of Cusco, Don Fernando de Cartagena y Santa Cruz. At points it's flashy and the furniture looks straight out of Milan (the hotel owners are Italian), but original Incan stone walls and Andes-themed photos from brilliant Peruvian photographer Morfi Jiménez Mercado maintain the Peruvian sense of place. As with the best of the increasingly luxe hotels in Cusco, there are posh extras, here in the form of piped-in oxygen (to combat altitude sickness), walk-in showers, and personal laptops. The attentive staff will serve impromptu pisco cocktails or treats from the restaurant, a renovation of La Chola, a simple but legendary Cuzqueña picanteria that now slings out trendy Andean and international plates. After a day touring the ruins, the tri-level Qoya spa, the most complete in the city, will help you catch your breath.—2010 Hot List

Which room to book: The Royal Suite for the private Jacuzzi, dry sauna, and terrace with views of the courtyard and Cusco's glowing Cristo Blanco statue on the hill above.
