“Accidental Tourist... ended in a great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

I arrived at Quito late at night and my original hotel was booked. They made arrangements for me at this hotel and my first impression was NO WAY. This is not your typical American Howard Johnson. The Quality of this hotel is more like a Sheraton. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful all around. The rooms are nothing extraordinary but they are comfortable. The hotel provides you with great toiletries shampoo, conditioner, soaps, and even slippers. I had a good night sleep and a great breakfast. The hotel is in a quiet area which I did not get to explore. I would have stayed here if I had the option.

Nice hotel located near major roads with easy access to a number of points and a large shopping mall. Good restaurant with variety of local and international food. Good internet connection. Room decor was a bit outdated and rooms were on the small side, but pretty normal for this market. Overall good value for the money.

Room Tip: rooms on the eastern side of the hotel heat up a lot with the morning sun

My responsibility, I booked a room the first day of trip instead of the last. We called and explained to booking manager and asked to change reservation, they weren't sold out. They refused to help us. Obviously short term and not looking for repeat business. Go elsewhere.

Nice service, very friendly staff. Big rooms, nice beds. Seems like they have no air conditioning, but with quito's weather who needs it. the only thing I didn't like was wifi service, it was a fair signal. but if you need to send a big document wireless sometimes is not good, and there was no wired option. Room service food was good and simple, pretty tasty

Room Tip: rooms facing to republica avenue have better view to the city

Located in a convenient spot near Carolina park and one shopping mall, it's near the business district, not the historic part of town. My room was huge, service was very attentive and helpful. Excellent value. Breakfast was typical fare, also very good value. As it is in the northern end of town, it is closer to the airport and the planes noise can be a bit loud at night, but this is true for most hotels in that part of town and would not keep me from staying there again.

The Howard Johnson in Quito is a good hotel. Especially for Americans who may not be familiar with Ecuador. The rooms are ok. I did have a strong cleaning solution smell in my room that affected my sinuses. But I adapted. TV and Internet are reasonably good. THe restaurant has reasonably good food as well. However, there are many other eateries near the hotel that are really good. There is a huge shopping mall close to the hotel: maybe 20 minute walk. Of course, if you are not used to the altitude, that walk can be a little tough. Overall, a good, safe place to stay in Quito.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the highway if possible

I spent four days at this Hotel and the service and amenities were just what I needed. The Ecuadorean hospitality is one of their best treasures and this hotel did not lack any bit of it. Breakfast was served buffet style with nice decorations and food quality. I highly recommnend this hotel if you're looking for a medium-size hotel with good comfort, cleanliness and great customer service.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms that have a view towards the Volcán Pichincha!
