The guestrooms and common spaces of the Divani Caravel reflect a deep respect for historic Athens while providing all the comforts of a 21st-century hotel. Fashionistas love the location, close to the boutiques of Kolonaki, the city's uncontested neighborhood for high style and nightlife, while art aficionados are walking distance from the Museum of Cycladic Arts and the National Gallery. All guests will admire the views of Constitution Square and the Acropolis from the hotel’s rooftop, which boasts a gorgeous pool. For business travelers, there are many options for meetings and events, including sixteen fully-equipped function rooms, the Olympia ballroom and the Athens View banqueting hall overlooking Lycabettus Hill and the Acropolis.
Set in Cusco, the colonial heart of Peru and gateway to the ancient Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu, the Hotel Monasterio is one of the most luxurious and historic hotels in South America. From the flower-filled entrance courtyard, the colonial-era aesthetic unfolds in the tranquil cloisters, where authentic Cusquenian paintings dating from the 16th and 17th centuries hang on the walls, and wood beam ceilings, ancient stone floors and religious artifacts dominate the bedrooms and suites. Rooms on the second floor look out to the 300-year-old cedar tree at the center of the old courtyard, where many guests sit with soothing coca tea—the traditional treatment for altitude sickness—although they can also select a room with special oxygen ventilation.
