Quito has a serious reputation. Generally I tend not to heed all of what I hear about a place before I go and make my own judgements, but... There's a lot on Quito. I'll be staying in the Hilton in the Mariscal and I'm still nervous. A lot of the posts on danger are a couple years old however and I'm wondering what people who have been more recently have to say about the state of the city.
