You might be under the impression that this hotel is out of the way with respect to Machu Picchu, but I think it's a better choice than the other high-end hotel that sits up at MP. The other hotel is basically in the parking lot (where buses line up, tourists buy souvenirs, etc.), whereas the Inkaterra is a shuttle bus ride away. The shuttle bus is not inconvenient, and your reward for staying at the Inkaterra is that you are surrounded by a natural setting that serves as a buffer from the Aguas Calientes street market, pedestrian traffic, and construction. The hotel is close to the train station (walking distance). There are lovely grounds to wander. The staff were extraordinarily friendly and helpful. The restaurant servers were very attentive (maybe a little too attentive). Our room was slightly cramped but if you are visiting here, you shouldn't be spending too much time in your room anyway. I did not use the spa but I heard great things about it from other guests who did. The breakfast offerings were varied and tasty.
Note that it is quite humid here. If you travel light and plan to wash clothes along the way, do not count on being able to air dry anything here. I had some quick-dry fabrics that barely dried at all while being hung up for almost 2 days. I am not sure whether the hotel's laundry service uses dryer appliances.
