In the upmarket Miraflores area
The Doubletree El Pardo is on a calm street in the popular Miraflores district of Lima. It's a clean, safe area with nearby shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, and cafes.
Most visitors to Lima flock straight to Miraflores, which is widely known for its shopping, gardens, well-maintained parks, and beaches. It's one of Lima's more upscale areas, and is a cultural center with theaters, galleries, and cinemas. Calle de Las Pizzas ("Pizza Street") is lined with pubs and bars that are filled with teenagers and young adults (especially on the weekends).
The beaches here are popular with surfers and sunbathers alike (especially during the hot summer months), and are a great alternative to walking around in unbearably warm weather. In general, the area is safe and is popular with Peruvians and international tourists.
The Doubletree El Pardo is a solid mid-range option in a city where hotel room quality varies widely. Rooms at this chain property are fairly generic, but pops of bright green or orange furniture and artwork add some style. Bathrooms are clean and offer modern fixtures along with plenty of space. The stand-out features here are the rooftop indoor pool and the free parking, both of which are relatively rare in Lima. For a reliable hotel with free Wi-Fi, an on-site bar, and business center, this Hilton-owned property is a solid pick.
