Booking a Sold-out Hotel in Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu is, hands down, one of the most amazing places in the world. The sacred Inca city is remote and mystical and was also the place a client chose to celebrate a milestone birthday. The catch: Only one hotel sits atop the mountain, and with just 31 rooms, it is nearly impossible to book. As suspected, it was completely sold out when we started planning the trip six weeks in advance. But we weren’t about to let it go. We knew our client had to witness the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, when the grounds were completely untouched. For weeks, we worked closely with the property’s management. And four weeks before our client was set to leave, we gave the client an early birthday gift: a confirmed room. Our client had the trip of a lifetime—and we were happy to do our part to make that dream come true.
