Thunderbird Hotels info

Postby Followthesun » Fri Mar 20, 2015 7:52 am

Asking for a friend.
He is coming to Lima in the near future and was looking at the Thunderbird Hotels.
On their website, I noticed there are 4 hotels - interspersed within Lima.
Does anyone have any experience with the Thunderbird Hotels or prefer one over the other?
Do the Thunderbird Hotels have long term or monthly rates?
Also, he needs a good internet connection preferably in the room vs. the lobby.
Do the Thunderbird Hotels offer Wi-Fi?

Thanks

To be honest, some of your questions could reliably be answered by contacting the hotel, no?

I have found that in Peru, some businesses change policy/service rather quickly.
Possibly due to new ownership or management, any number of reasons.
Also, my friend would prefer first hand experiences vs. what is portrayed on the web site.
Peruvian businesses are no different from other countries where they list as a 4 star establishment and they are really maybe a 1 or 2.
Honesty is always the best policy - but some refuse to abide by this...

Thanks

Thunderbird is a good, modern chain. Your friend will find wifi and professional service overall. Regarding weekly and monthly rates, the best thing to do is call them. Since it is a chain, they may have a building dedicated for long-stays.

Alan,

Thanks for the info.
Coming from you is a great referral for Thunderbird.
My friend is still in the US and calls to Peru are expensive.
I will have my Peruvian gf call.

Thanks again

Well honestly, you seem to be aware that hotels change policies etc. quickly. That's why honestly I suggested you would get reliable information by calling them today for up-to-date honest info (rather than info from someone who stayed there a while back before a policy was changed). Tell me honestly, calling them really is a good idea, no?

If you friend wants to stay in a first class hotel then I recommend the Hilton, the Marriot or the Westin. I have friends who work as flight attendants and when they fly to Lima, the airline books a room for them in those hotels.

They have excellent security, clean rooms and good internet connection.

Thanks again, Alan
I am thrilled such a busy person as yourself finds time to help.
This is how expatperu should function - without all the off-topic nonsense and trolls who defame posters.

Have an enjoyable weekend
Thanks

I stayed at the Thunderbird in San Isidro 2 years ago. A lot can change, but it was a very nice room and hotel. comparable to many of the top quality rooms in Lima hotels.
