Actually, the other route that can allow you to stay later.... But not pay 
$800 a night...    is to walk down from Machu Picchu to Aguas Calientes....  
 It really isn't that bad of a walk...   there are kids/Chasquis  who race 
the buses down... and of course the kids win...

I wouldn't recommend walking up...  save your legs for Huyana Picchu    : )

I like the idea of spending two days at the site...    It increases your odd 
of getting good light...

But if it was me...   I would spend the extra day or two elsewhere....   
There isn't much history in Aguas Calientes it's a relatively new town...   
and it's only real existence is off of tourists...  and I didn't find it all 
that photogenic or memorable...   But some people enjoy it : )
