To start, if you're driving, they do not offer valet, but the parking garage is underneath, is free for guests, and is accessible on Avenida 18 de Septiembre. All the roads around there are 1 way, so you have to drive a block past the hotel on Avenida Patria (going west), make a right onto 9 de Octubre, then a right on 18 de Septiembre. It's tricky, there's ALWAYS traffic. Good luck!
I stay at Hilton properties during travels probably about 15 times/year or so. This is one of the best "bang for my bucks" I've ever experienced at a Hilton. First of all, I got 2 free drinks upon arrival. Granted, it's a set menu of 4 drinks, but who cares. It's free.
Internet was free, which is something I haven't always found in Hiltons, particularly in the United States where Hilton tries to snatch as much money from you as possible.
And the view from my side was breathtaking (I've attached it). If you go, ask for a Park View room. Absolutely worth it.
Finally, the location of the Hilton is right smack in the middle of town. If you walk to the northeast, up Avenida Amazonas, you find yourself in the heart of the Mariscal area which is loaded with bars, hostels, restaurants, cafes, and fellow travelers. Great place to meet some other people.
If you walk across the park, down the PanAm Hwy, toward the Basillica, you'll rapidly find yourself in Old Town, which is one of the best things about Quito.
I didn't try the food because I wanted to see what small mom & pop shops had to offer, but I did see the spread and it certainly looked good.
As for everything else, the place was standard Hilton. High quality, comfortable, clean. Oh, and it was really cheap for a Hilton. About $100 USD/night.
