An FOHC--that'd be a friend of HotelChatter--just got back from an 11-day trip through in Peru. While he didn't enjoy being trapped on a boat with retirees, cruising up the Amazon, he did have a time and a half in Lima.

He dropped this report in our tip jar after spending a couple nights in the Peruvian capital:

In a huge city like Lima, a ride from the airport is a valuable commodity. The Best Western Embajadores will send a driver to the airport for you. Nothing like coming out of customs and seeing a sign with your name on it, held by a friendly driver. Embajadores is only 5 blocks from the best shopping center in town, built into the cliffs above the beach.

Hotel E is compact, very clean and well-maintained, and features an excellent breakfast buffet, with eggs, boiled yucca, a variety of breads, and Peruvian fruit. The hotel staff were eager to practice their English on us, and did very well. Miraflores is a well-to-do section of Lima, with plenty of shops and  restaurants.

From the hotel it is an easy walk to the long park built along the top of the cliff above the beach. Lots of joggers, strolling couples, and ice cream vendors on 3 wheeled bikes. For 58 dollars a night, this is a great bargain!

Just don't get your hopes up about the rooftop pool--our tipster's been in hot tubs that were bigger.
