I have trouble finding anything to complain about with this hotel. If I did mention something, I would just be nitpicking. From its location on the main plaza of the historic center, to the large, richly appointed rooms, this hotel is a winner in every way. The staff is friendly and the fresh flowers in the room are a wonderful touch.
We stayed 7 nights and can't believe there is a better place to stay in the old center. We were able to walk to all of the sites. The room was large with a seating area and dining table with chairs. The bathroom was large and richly appointed with a whirlpool tub. We had a small balcony overlooking the street, presidential palace and the mountains beyond. There were even some English channels on the satellite TV. The staff was excellent and helpful. I can't give enough kudos to this place.
One additional note, we did not experience any noise on the Saturday evening we were there unlike another review which mentions it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Plaza Grande rises above Quito's central square, known as the Plaza de la Independencia. It was one of the first hotels ever constructed in the capital, and has been extensively renovated and remodeled to become the finest boutique hotel in the city. It is the ideal place from which to explore the wonders of this timeless city. Quito was declared a UNESCO "World Heritage Site" in 1978, thanks to its historic center, which is the largest and best preserved in Latin America. The colonial center of the Franciscan city of Quito is a treasure trove of baroque art and architecture, including buildings, churches, monasteries and narrow streets that reflect Ecuador's unique blend of indigenous and Spanish cultures. ... more less
