We stayed at the Mercure several times as we toured Ecuador. The staff were very friendly and the rooms spacious and quiet. The breakfast buffet opened at 4am. That was a nice convenience because we had early flights to the Galapagos and Amazon. I can't really comment on the hotel's location relative to restaurants and attractions because we arrived late and left early each time we stayed. I also can't say much about cost/value because the stays were part of a package tour. However, given the overall reasonable cost of the tour, the hotel could not have been out of line.
Be warned it is a solid 45 minute trip to the Quito airport (UIO) in non-rush hour (an hour or more in rush hour). Quito opened a new airport a few months ago and it is quite far (Dulles to DC?) outside the city. The highway to the airport was not open as of March 2014. And, there are virtually no hotels at the airport. In short, every hotel in Quito has this problem -- it's not the Mercure's fault. You just need to factor it in to your planning until the highway opens.
