Ok, first the positive. The rooms/lobby area are excellent, the staff generally helpful and friendly (particularly the bellmen), the buffet delicious (but a bit costly for Ecuador standards), and beds comfortable.
On a less positive note, the hotel falls directly under the flight path of airplanes landing in the Quito airport. While this may change when the airport moves, during our stay, this was a fatal flaw. It was impossible to have a mid-afternoon rest because every 10 minutes a plan flew overhead (so close, I could hit it with a baseball!!). And let me tell you --- it was LOUD! We tried to change the room, but our requests were ignored for some reason.
Finally, although we were ungraded to a suite (and it was beautiful!), the hotel tried not to honor the rate quoted to us by phone upon making our reservation. Although this was straightened out, it took about 45 minutes out of our vacation to sort this out.
