Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge is the only hotel located adjacent to this ancient Inca citadel. It has an exclusive atmosphere and is operated by Orient Express. The ruins open at 6 am and staying here means you can be among the first few people in the site when it opens. Some rooms are more spacious than others. The standard rooms are comfortable and well-appointed, but often have interior views or views of the parking lot (no views of the mountains), while the suites have mountain views, terraces, and more space.
