Best way to get to Machu Picchu from JW Marriott/Cusco Hotel

We are heading to Cusco in 2 weeks and are trying to book a single day trip up to Machu Picchu. However, we are having a hard time understanding exactly how we need to get to the train/bus stations from Cusco, etc. We are staying at the JW Marriott in Cusco. I have read a lot about Cusco City for booking/buying tickets but seems to have gotten bad reviews lately and with only 2 weeks left, I am afraid we won't have enough time to get tickets, as I have read it takes a while for processing payment with Ed. We are just trying to find the best bang for our buck with the entry ticket, transportation and tour guide(if we decide to get one) and what the best way to go is for the single day. Any specific suggestions/advice and help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!

If you are too busy to spare time for travel research, just contact to JW Marriot. The concierges will take care of every request, with some commissions.

If you have time to book by yourself, just book directly at the following sites.

Machu Picchu Ticket official site

http://www.machupicchu.gob.pe/

Train

If your trip is before July 21, there is no train between Cusco and Machu Picchu. You have to go to Ollaytaytambo by taxi/colectivo from Cusco to get a train. Though it looks like your trip is after July 21.

If you depart from Cusco, you have to take a bus (30 min) or taxi (20 min) from Cusco to Peru Rail Station, Poroy station(=Cusco).
