BCP money transfer

Does anyone know which bank BCP uses as an intermediary bank in the US? I am trying to make a hotel reservation which requires a 50% deposit by transfer to BCP. My bank says they must know BCP's intermediary bank. The hotel has not responded to my request for this info. They may be confused by my request since they apparently use a translation program. The translation is poor. A recent reply stated "NOTE:YOU MUST BRING PETS" when the original stated "NOTA: PROHIBIDO TRAER MASCOTAS"
Any help is appreciated.

Have you asked your bank if they can use BCP's SWIFT code?

SWIFT del Banco de Crédito: BCPLPEPL

Yes, I took that information to them. They say they do not use SWIFT codes, only ABA codes to domestic banks. It is a local credit union.

That's strange. I also bank with my local credit union, and somehow they do take SWIFT codes.
Will the hotel accept credit cards for deposits?

It should! Most good hotels do work with credit cards. If I were you I'd look for a hotel that does accept credit card info as a deposit.

Anyway, BCP webpage mentions its branch at Miami, and it indicates this info, hope it helps:

Thanks Villavic. I made the transfer with the info given. At least I say, the money went somewhere. It was not a large amount. The hotel is the Villasol Hotel in Lunahuana. They did not offer a cc option. I found no other way to book other than directly with the hotel. They appear legitimate showing both local and Lima phone numbers on their website. They also have favorable reviews on Trip Advisor. I have arranged transportation and am determined to visit Lunahuana even if I have to show up and look for a hotel.
