If you want good scenery, don't book this hotel. If you want everything else, do. We stayed here for ten nights and this is what we discovered. Its downtown location is great for walks to the Malecon and Parque de las Iguanas, and it's worth mentioning there is a supermarket/grocery store on the same block. The hotel staff are extremely professional, and the majority of them are fluent in English. We booked a double room, and it was very modern. It had two phones in the main room, and one in the bathroom. It also had two usb charging ports between the beds which was very impressive, and uber handy for charging our phones. A few family members had booked king rooms and I did not see the same charging ports in their rooms. There is a small gym on the sixth floor. Its worth mentioning this because they didn't seem to have the list of hotel features (or brochure) you normally find in a hotel room. Drivers in Ecuador seem to take pride in using their horns, and it is often quite noisy because of this, but the room we stayed in shielded the sound well (on the second floor). They have a complimentary breakfast buffet every morning. Everything is fresh at the buffet but what isn't well known is that you can also order things like pancakes and French toast and they will make them to order for you as part of the complimentary breakfast. Their restaurant is as impressive as the rest of the hotel, and the meals there are of high quality. The 24hr room service is also worth a shout, and the prices for both room service and restaurant meals are very reasonable. If I ever return to Guayaquil, this is where I would stay again.
