My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here for one (too brief) night in January. We were tired and worn out from a long day of travel and stayed here one night, arriving at midnight. They had rose petals scattered around our room, a bottle of wine and fruit plate and chocolate waiting for us. The huge tub... More

After a wonderful, sometimes arduous and always adventurous week scaling the Andean heights and Golapagan depths of Ecuador it was heavenly to fall into the arms of the Plaza Grande's staff, yummy beds and food for three nights. I struggled with the pricing. I've stayed at some pretty great places for less money but decided that this level of service/property... More

The location is excellent and the hotel is gorgeous. The staff is very accommodating and the restaurant is very good as well. The bed was super comfy, room was plenty cool, and we slept like babies! Ecuador is known for it's long stemmed roses and the hotel displays them beautifully. The only complaint I have is we didn't get to... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in Oct 2014, split by a couple of nights in the cloud forest. Very traditional style & décor, located in the old part of town - certainly a better location that the main competitor. Our first room was along the side road which whilst being a good room, was a bit... More

I have a problem rating this hotel. In reading the other reviews, they are mostly correct. Yes, the location is excellent if you wish to stay in the Old Town; yes, the staff is very solicitous; yes, the restaurants are both very good; and yes, the rooms are spacious, very clean and have wonderful bathrooms. Incidentally, the sheets, comforters and... More

We stayed three nights here on our South American trip. It is a beautiful old hotel with large rooms. Some face onto the square itself. The restaurant serves excellent food. They even arranged breakfast for us at 4.30am when we had an early start.

Perfect location if your main interest in Quito is the Old Town. We had a late dinner on a Sunday in the hotel restaurant. Order the steak "friar style" and they turn down the lights and guys dressed in friars' robes holding candles bring out your plates as smoke pours out of your plates. Extremely solicitous desk and lobby staff... More

Stayed here two nights and the room was great. Very spacious and a view across the plaza. The staff were exceptional and tried to please with every interaction. The rooms have large windows and you need to make sure they are closed properly to block out any noise. The bathrooms are spacious and have great shower and amenities. The hotel... More

We spent a total of 4 nights at Plaza Grande over a period of 3 weeks traveling around Ecuador. As much as we enjoyed the rest of this beautiful country (and we really did!), we always looked forward to getting back to the comfort and class of this great hotel. All the staff were so very helpful and kind, they... More
