We've stayed at this Hilton several times and never disappointed. An easy 5 minute walk takes you to Mercado Artesanal where you can find interesting arts & crafts souvenirs from Ecuador. Also within walking distance to the 'entertainment hub' of Quito - La Mariscal, about a 15 walk. A $3 taxi ride will take you to the heart of the historic district or the hotel can arrange a private van, with an English guide, for $20 an hour if you're interested to visit other attractions.
The rooms are always clean and nothing sleeps like a Hilton bed... I've never had a any problems with staff, or felt they intrude in any which way. They always do their absolute best to keep their guests happy and it's not a 'put-on' fake friendliness.
There's a great little restaurant Sal & Pimiento outside the Hilton, they also have a bakery inside the hotel. If you want to venture further, turn right outside the hotel and walk a few blocks up the road - there's some really great restaurants and bakeries, also a fantastic juice bar where you get freshly made vegetable and fruit juices or go explore La Mariscal - a few good restaurants in that area.
The Spa and swimming pool lacks atmosphere and I would give this a skip, unless you're totally in need of a muscle rub....
I've stayed at many B&B's, boutique hotels around Quito, but my favorite is the Hilton, due to their staff, great service, wonderful beds, and if you book a suite on the executive floor, the jacuzzi bath and extra space in the bedroom area, is definitely worth the extra dollar, especially if you want to relax after a tiring day in the city.
