Anyone stayed at Tambo del Inca, luxury collection by Marriott? If so what’s your experience and how far is it to Machu Piccu? TIA

Peruvian here. The hotel is a 15 minute drive to Ollantaytambo where you catch the train to Aguas Calientes (1h50m). From Aguas Calientes there is a 20min bus/taxi to Machu Picchu. You can get an English speaking guide at the entrance of Machu Picchu. Your hotel should be able to offer you an excursion but you’ll probably save money doing it yourself as they’d just book you a taxi to the station, train ticket, and bus or driver at aguas calientes. You can do it cheaper and safe by booking your own train ticket, having them call you a taxi to the station, and then taking the bus up to macchu picchu and getting an English speaking guide at the entrance.

Didn’t stay there but it’s outrageously expensive for the area. I had a good experience staying at non-Marriotts in Sacred Valley

In my experience some travelers are just experienced to traveling to Europe and staying at nice properties there and they get culture shock in Peru

Got a great deal on points pre-spg merger. Absolutely worth it, great facilities, amenities, and breakfast. Not the most convenient place to get to so expect to arrange a taxi anywhere you want to go but definitely an awesome experience.

I stayed at Sol y Luna. It’s also a little pricey for the area but not as bad as Tambo and I thought it was lovely.

Loved the hotel, one of my favorites. Cute little local restaurant nearby that was amazing! The train to Aguas Calientes picks up there (or at least it did 2 years ago) so you have no problem getting to Macchu Pichu!

What is the best credit card right now? I have mostly used my Marriott and Southwest for the points, but looking at other cards. Chase Freedom is not that great. Heard good things about Chase Saffire Reserve. Also thinking about non travel cards. And Amex. TIA!!!

Back in Jan I booked two Marriott rooms for one night with points - 17.5K each and 35K in total. Now that they told me for one of the room the 40K free night award was used. How’s that even possible!?

Some of these posts are ridiculous. They’re like just exited consulting to FAANG/Niche Startup with $150k base and $400k TC with 6 months of experience,you can do it too! Then they ghost or explain that they are a former SWE 😬 coming from MBB. Going to some super Niche role that people with crazy backgrounds are recruited for. Congrats, but not everyone has that background

Not meant to be a controversial post. Received an offer from KPMG. Cool group. Makes sense to move but, is the KPMG brand name going to hurt branding/exit opps. Firm does seem to get ripped a lot.
