I was ohh so pleasantly surprised when we checked into this hotel. It’s SO MUCH nicer than the Sheraton in Guayaquil. It’s definitely a higher end hotel for a Sheraton.
Room: We had a king room with a view on the SPG floor. The room was modern and clean and they adorned us with extras: free WiFI, a complementary plate of cakes/chocolates (too bad I am vegan and didn’t get to enjoy) and a comfy oversized bath robe. The bed was heaven after the last week on a rocky ship in the Galapagos. I could have spent the entire weekend in the bed.
Location: The location was perfect for us- walking distance to so many restaurants and shops. It was a very lively area which we like. The cabs were cheap- a $3-$5 ride took us anywhere we wanted to go.
Service: Impeccable. The staff here was wonderful and the concierge especially was very helpful as I called her constantly for restaurant reservations and general questions.
Tips: get a driver for the day and take a day outside the city. We had an 8:30 pickup on the Saturday we were there and a very scenic drive took us outside the city to Otavalo. The highlights were the market, the Peguche Waterfall and the lake. The ride was a breathtaking journey filled with lots of greenery and mountains. Please email me if you are interested in information on the driver we used. I found him here on a tripadvisor forum and he was excellent; really made our day.
Traffic: the traffic in Quito is worse 10x worse than the traffic in NYC. If you think it will take you an hour to get to the airport, budget for two. Same can be said around town at any given time of day- cars, cars and oh yes, more cars! Be prepared for this.
Overall: a lovely city filled with really nice people. We enjoyed our weekend here.
