We stayed twice in this Hilton, a total of 4 nights, on each end of our 2-week trip, and couldn't have been more pleased with this stylish, sophisticated property. We found the rates to be competitive, and by North American city standards, a total bargain:$313 for the elegant and spacious one-bedroom suite.
I really recommend that you consider the upgrade to the executive level; it adds a relatively small premium to the regular room rates, and is totally worth it. The 11th floor lounge and outside area where you enjoy those perks is lovely, and the food offered there - breakfast until 11:00, followed by lunch offerings, followed by snacks, drinks, and small tapas at the dinner hour, always both hot and cold choices - is quite good. Some people actually made it work for all their food needs each day, but then you give up the phenomenal experience of Lima's fabulous food scene, and this would be a grave mistake! Many of the best restaurants are within a 5-10 minute walk of this conveniently located hotel. And you MUST EAT in Lima! Panchito, Fiesta, Central, Rafael, to mention a few, all within safe and easy walking distance.
The customer service at the hotel is excellent, everyone speaks adequate to excellent English, and the concierges are top notch. The suite is large and well-laid out, and has a separate dressing area with a built-in rack for stowing suitcases, and a safe large enough for a laptop. I was disappointed that it lacks a separate soaking tub, which you do get in the cheaper corner suite. So if you like that luxury in your hotel room, you have to fore-go it in the more expensive accommodation. The (huge) shower does leak dreadfully, (at least ours did), and the wifi is surprisingly unpredictable, hard to connect and a bit slow, which is a little harder to forgive in such a modern hotel catering to the business executive. But I still give the hotel 5 stars, as those inconveniences were more than balanced by many positive extra features.
Most appreciated among these was the ability to stay in the executive lounge hours after check-out. If you are departing for the states, your flight will most likely be after midnight, and if you don't want to pay for another half-day of room, they will provide you with a key that gains you access to the executive lounge until you need to depart for the airport. So you can store your luggage with the concierge, and relax, eat and drink to your heart's content until the lounge closes at 10. This is perhaps the best incentive to upgrade to the executive level.
We also used their car service (CMV), and although more expensive than regular cabs, we found them to be very professional, reliable, and the cars clean and comfortable, with functioning seatbelts, something you probably will be grateful for after even just 5 minutes in Lima traffic! It took the anxiety out of trying to navigate all the cab touts that will assault you the minute you emerge from customs.
Miraflores is a good safe part of the city to stay in, as it feels like the center of the action with regard to restaurants, shopping, and access to the lovely walkway along the cliff. I was torn between the Hilton and one of the hotels in San Isidro, but am glad we chose the Hilton as San Isidro seemed a bit quieter and less central. Until some hotel goes into the historical colonial Centro, which is really beautiful and a must-see, btw, the Hilton is the best option.
