The Four Points by Sheraton has by far the best location of all Starwood properties in Lima. It catches 50% higher rates than the Sheraton and I guess this will only increase. It opened just 3 months ago. It's housed in a renovated building in a quiet street just off Park Kennedy. This is the center of Miraflores – arguably Lima's best neighborhood. It's just about 15 walk to the cliffs and the beach. Some of Lima's best restaurants and coffee shops are just a couple of blocks away. You can't really go wrong in terms of location.

The check-in was friendly and the agent spoke fluent English. However it took him a long time to find a suite upgrade (he did!) and issue my room keys. Four Points only offers 250 points as platinum amenity. Breakfast is included for all guests.

The suite was two rooms and felt more like a modern apartment – than a hotel room. I liked the modern furniture. The bathroom was brand new as well. While much smaller than my suite in the Sheraton Lima – this was like a home away from home.

The Wifi was VERY fast once I connected my travel router to the cable. The hotel walls are of solid concrete and the signal just would not travel far slowing the hotel Wifi down too much.

The breakfast was just ok – with just a number of cold items. The bakery items were the best. However a espresso drink was charged extra. After day 2 I did not bother going anymore and just walked 2 minutes to the next supermarket which had loads of pastries for under 50 cents and great coffee from he coffee shop next door – all in all under $3.

The restaurants around in Miraflores are all a bit on the expensive side. It's more or less US level – some below – some above.

Overall this was certainly more of a no-frills experience than the other hotels I tried in Peru. However the hotel is brand new, very motivated staff and one of the best locations in Lima. Room rates sometimes dipped under $100 – it's a great deal than. I'd happily come back!
