We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in June 2018. We received an upgrade to a suite at check in (SPG Platinum) and the hotel had great service and SPG recognition. The location is pretty good with a short walk to the main square,...More
We could not rate this place more highly. It was welcome comfort to arrive to after suffering slightly with the altitude. The beds are comfortable and large (my mum and I shared a room and had a double bed each!) and the welcome cocktail was...More
Overall, this is a spectacular hotel. Service is top notch throughout the hotel from the moment the doors are open for you in the entrance. We need to call out Matias at the concierge desk who helped us with a tour in Lima (yes Lima)...More

I have never used the oxygen but seen staff provide tanks to individual guests in the lobby. Pumping oxygen into rooms - this has never come up in my stays there. This option would likely not allow you to acclimate to the altitude.
My advice for acclimating to altitude: First day you arrive, drink coca tea provided in the lobby, go straight to your room to lie down and rest (staying horizontal helps). That day/night, eat a light meal (nothing heavy or oily) and do NOT drink alcohol. Second day you can eat as you please. Just know that in high altitudes, you will feel fuller faster.
Note on Marriott: Although Marriott owns SPG hotels (such as Palacio del Inka), SPG and Marriott are still different "brands" and thus provide different amenities. Marriott has several levels and I would say SPG is high up there and Palacio del Inka is a Luxury Collection Hotel, so a step even higher. I highly recommend this hotel - it's an excellent hotel with exceptional staff and service.
Although we received very good service at the hotel, I would be doubtful if they had rooms like this. Everyone we met in Cusco was well aware of the altitude issues for tourists and did everything to assist us like having... More
Although we received very good service at the hotel, I would be doubtful if they had rooms like this. Everyone we met in Cusco was well aware of the altitude issues for tourists and did everything to assist us like having coco tea and/or leaves available at all times. We found the tea and the coco candies to be enough.
