The first hotel we stayed at during our trip to Peru was the Sheraton Lima Historic Center. It was centrally located for everything we wanted to see and about one-third of the price of the JW Marriott Hotel Lima in Miraflores. We stayed two nights, but I booked the night before we arrived since our flight was landing at 5:00 AM and I wanted the room to be ready.

Anthony’s Take: The Sheraton Lima Historic Center offers comfortable rooms and great service in a hotel that’s in need of some renovations but well maintained, overall. The staff were exceedingly friendly and we found our suite spacious. The hotel treats elite members well and all benefits were graciously provided without question.

Sheraton Lima Booking


The room was booked through I booked a 1 King Bed, Capital View, Concierge Lounge Access, Junior Suite on a Member Flexible Rate with Breakfast for $180 plus taxes per night. If you’re looking to redeem Marriott Bonvoy® points here, redemptions cost between 30,000 and 45,000 points per night for a standard room.

Transportation to/from the Hotel

We took an Uber from Jorge Chavez International Airport (LIM). I cannot get over how inexpensive Ubers are in Peru. The approximately 12-kilometer ride took 30 minutes and cost $16. We returned to the airport the same way and at a similar cost.

The hotel is located near the historic center and right next door to a mall. There is a supermarket and multiple outlets for snacks and quick meals inside. We found the location worked well for inexpensive Uber rides to take us everywhere we wanted to go pretty quickly.

Sheraton Lima Check In


We arrived around 7:00 AM and the suite was ready (since I booked it for the night before). The hotel did not offer an upgrade and I was too tired to see if there was a larger suite as a possibility. The 1 King Bed, Capital View, Concierge Lounge Access, Junior Suite suited us fine. The agent offered me a late checkout and took me through all of the benefits that the hotel offers, including breakfast and access to the lounge on the 18th floor. I had my keys a moment later and was on my way to bed as I was tired after flying overnight.

Overall Impression: The Sheraton Lima Historic Center provided us with a good base for our first two nights in Lima. It’s a functional hotel for business or leisure and the staff was friendly throughout our stay. The breakfast is decent and the suite was comfortable. This is not a luxury hotel, but it worked on this trip.

Nice review. Out of curiosity, why book a room with breakfast and lounge access when your status should have provided those for free?

It was the cheapest rate that was not prepaid. I viewed it as not paying anything additional.
