I assume that those reading this review have not visited Quito before. The city is somewhat similar to LA in that it doesn't have one downtown, but three commercial hubs: Old Town, New Town (aka Mariscal) and La Carolina. The Howard Johnson (HoJo) is on the outskirts of La Carolina. Minor inconvenience for those who prefer to walk, but cabs... More

Very nice staff, arrived late almost midnight. They were expecting us, fast check in and comfortable room. Breakfast available, thought it was included, my bad. On the expensive side, spend $182.00 for a short overnight stay including breakfast, taxes and 10% gratuity. Found more reasonable accommodations the following day.

Great hotel. I travel a lot for work and this is probably the best chain I have been to. Great service, wonderful little extra touches (e.g., bath robe in room, little chocolates, etc.) and beautiful modern design to the rooms. Room service was very fast and affordable. Would definitely return.

Hard to find a more helpful and friendly staff. Good restaurant. Ask for a room that does not face the main street as there is no noise abatement. Airport is 45 Km away, so early morning flights require arising very early. This is not unique to HOJO as there are not many hotels near the new airport.

I stayed one night at this hotel after arriving from Miami. It is in the heart of the city, so it took 45 minutes to get there from the new airport, late at night with very little traffic. Because I was not doing any touring in the city, I would stay next time at a hotel near the airport. (Please... More

I spent a few days in this hotel on my way to the north border and back. It was especially relaxing on the way back, when I really appreciated the comfort offered by the extremely kind staff of the hotel. Great choice of food at breakfast.

Pretty standard hotel. Pretty good when taking the price into consideration. The rooms are a little worn including the bathroom. I spent 8 nights there with a group of people on business. Be ware of seafood in the restaurant - one in our group was very sick after eating squid. Service was good and the staff very friendly and helpfull.
