The hotel houses the largest events facility in Peru, complete with 17 meeting rooms featuring high-end technologies and services, and a dedicated meeting staff. The on-site convention center can accommodate meetings and events of all sizes, from small business meetings to 2,000-guest corporate events.

The 244-room Swissotel is one of the best four-pearl hotels in San Isidro neighborhood, and one of the most business-friendly, with nine meeting rooms, a ballroom for large events, and a dedicated meeting staff. Other than the standard rooms, all rooms grant access to the Executive Lounge, which includes Internet access and free breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and an open bar during cocktail hour. Rooms have massive flat-screen TVs and spacious marble bathrooms, and the hotel maintains a luxurious vibe throughout, from the rooms to the restaurants to the gorgeous fitness center.
The 134-room Sonesta El Olivar is a high-end choice in the upscale residential neighborhood of San Isidro. Aside from its safe, walkable location, the hotel stands out for its long list of business-oriented amenities: 12 meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 350 people, a fitness center, a salon, a business center with free coffee and cookies, a spacious rooftop pool, two tasty restaurants, and 24-hour room service. Rooms , while not as luxurious as one may expect from a four-pearl hotel, are large, with massive flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, minibars, and fresh flowers.
This is an upscale property in San Isidro that caters primarily to business travelers. Attractive, spacious rooms feature flat-screen TVs, large desks, dark wood headboards, and marble bathrooms. Although this hotel has just 75 rooms, it has the features of a larger property, including a fitness center and a rooftop pool. Additional amenities include 24-hour room service, free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, and a large business center. Business travelers might also appreciate the meeting rooms with audio-visual equipment and prime business district location.
This upscale, business-oriented hotel is located in safe and quiet San Isidro, a couple of blocks from the business district. Spacious, clean rooms offer up-to-date touches, such as flat-screen TVs, stocked mini-fridges, and large work desks; decor is contemporary, albeit generic. Highlights include an outdoor pool that is small, but lovely, and a chic restaurant serving local cuisine in minimalist surroundings. There are also five stylish, well-equipped meeting rooms, and an airy lobby great for unwinding after a long day of work.
The Casa Andina Private Collection could be considered one of the top hotels in Lima, if it weren't for the lackluster decor. Rooms feel somewhat bland (despite the Peruvian artwork throughout), but they are huge across the board and have flat-screen TVs, plentiful natural light, comfortable beds, and spacious work desks with comfy chairs. Solid amenities, such as the indoor rooftop pool, Joop Salon, and fitness center with modern equipment, help the property stand out from its competitors. Business travelers can expect free Wi-Fi, 24-hour room service, five meeting rooms with multimedia capabilities, and a big 24-hour business center.
The 64-room Thunderbird Hotels Pardo is a good value in Miraflores for business travelers, featuring rooms with separate living areas and wet bars complete with mini-fridges and microwaves. Rooms also come equipped with large flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, and marble bathrooms have shower/tub combos with Jacuzzi jets, or enormous Jacuzzi tubs and separate showers. Those in town for work might appreciate the convenience of having on-site a fitness center, a street-side restaurant, and rooftop Jacuzzis with sweeping views of the city and the ocean. There are also a few meeting rooms that can accommodate small groups, and a 24-hour business center.
Rooms at this chain property are fairly generic, but they all come equipped with decent work desks with comfy seating, and big flat-screen TVs. The stand-out features here are the rooftop indoor pool and the free parking, both of which are relatively rare in Lima, plus a number of convenient business services that include several well-equipped meeting rooms, and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies at check-in. For a reliable hotel with free Wi-Fi, an on-site bar, and a business center, this Hilton-owned property is a solid pick.
