CUSCO, Peru – Uniting centuries-old legacies with its urban aesthetic, Motto by Hilton makes its much-anticipated South American debut with the opening of Motto by Hilton Cusco. A more than $5 million investment in the center of the Imperial City, the 58-room architectural gem pays homage to Cusco’s intricate past, from the mysteries of the ancient Killke era to the opulence of the Inca dynasty. The hotel is ideally situated for guests to immerse themselves in the local culture and is steps away from Cusco’s most visited attractions and landmarks, such as Plaza de Armas and Temple of the Koricancha.
“We are delighted to welcome guests to experience all that Motto by Hilton Cusco has to offer," said Raúl Galdo Marín, general manager and owner, Compañía Hotelera Las Ruinas. "The Killke and Inca cultures have been the inspiration for the design and decoration of the rooms, through the texture and colors of their walls; replicas of terraces and waterfalls in one of its courtyards, as well as the lobby, café and resto bar."
Like all Motto by Hilton properties, Motto by Hilton Cusco showcases a design that uniquely cherishes its roots. From the intricate terraces, cascading water features or the culturally inspired communal areas, every nook and corner of the hotel highlights Peruvian culture and is the ideal homebase for guests looking to explore Cusco's storied past.
“As Motto by Hilton continues to expand globally, we're proud to be the launchpad to Cusco – a city steeped in history and culture,” said Theodora De Souza, brand leader, Motto by Hilton. “Motto by Hilton Cusco seamlessly blends ancient heritage with modern-day hospitality through locally inspired design, flexible stay options and lively communal spaces. We look forward to welcoming guests with dynamic experiences and inviting them to experience Cusco like a local.”
Guests of the new hotel will find cleverly compact guest rooms that deliver a flexible stay and feature modern design that reflects the local destination. Each room is equipped with everything guests need for a restful night’s sleep, including top-notch mattresses, sound-absorbing surroundings and smart technology for maximum comfort.
Across the brand, guests can fully customize each stay with flexible sleeping setups, including standard, Flex beds that stow into the wall, The Bunkie (bunk bed), and more. As the pioneer of Confirmed Connecting Rooms by Hilton technology, Motto by Hilton also simplifies coordinating travel for larger friend and family groups by offering a number of varying connecting room configurations to accommodate groups of all sizes.
Offering a neighborhood hub for relaxation, connection, and enjoyment of locally inspired food and beverage, Motto Commons is an additional welcoming space featuring distinct design elements that reflect the spirit of the community and capture the essence of Cusco.
The Dig restobar will invite guests on a culinary odyssey, where ancient Inca flavors are combined with contemporary culinary techniques. Guests can savor dishes inspired by Cusquenian culture in a lively setting that embraces the region’s history. At night, the space welcomes live entertainment and music.
