We stayed at the Marriott before and after our Celebrity Cruise round the Galapagos Islands.
The hotel is well presented and spacious. Concierge and reception staff were courteous and efficient.
I have criticized the breakfast as it was a moderate quality buffet but when the party had to leave for the cruise early we were all waiting in the restaurant and no staff turned up for half an hour!
I would not regard Quito as either charming or safe. We were advised only to go out by taxi and although I did go for a wander and experienced no problems I would not recommend this. There are however a couple of beautiful shopping malls within a few minutes drive which are clean, safe and worth a visit but prices are high.
We ate as a cruise party once in the main restaurant and had a fixed meal which was average.
However the bar/restaurant is superb and I strongly recommend the sushi and chicken wings.
You cannot purchase alcohol in the public areas on Sundays! Room minibar or nothing!
Finally Quito decided to build a new airport in the middle of nowhere. Until new roads into Quito are completed the drive is an absolute nightmare. Allow at least 11/2 to 2 hours to get there!
Personally the only reason for going to Quito is en route to the Galapagos. As yet there is no airport hotel which would save the miserable drive and stay in Quito.
