First of all, Quito is a big city; so, no matter where you stay, you'll have to take a taxi to go anywhere, and the whole town is an hour taxi ride from the airport.
Having said that, location wise, we couldn't have picked a better place than Lugano Suites, as it's located in a quieter and more residential neighborhood across from Parque La Carolina. There are plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance, and having a park so close to the hotel was a big bonus for us as we were traveling with a young child.
The hotel and its amenities were nice, new and met all our needs, and the breakfast, although not extensive, was acceptable.
However, what made Lugano Suites exceptional was the excellent service, especially a concierge (door man, porter, and an all-around go to person) named Luizao, who worked tirelessly to make sure our stay in Quito was enjoyable. Every time we called a cab, he took the time to make sure that the driver knew exactly where we were going, and if/when we ran into a problem, he was always helpful and worked to find a solution. We wouldn’t have had such a wonderful stay in Quito without Luizao’s help, and the great staff at Lugano Suites!
