We stayed here as a splurge week to celebrate the end of seven and a half month trip. Booked via Hotels.com and got a great rate.
The hotel itself is located in the financial district of Quito. Most taxi drivers know where it is, which is always helpful, although on our arrival we found the only taxi driver who didn't know where it was.
Check-in process was very smooth and dealt with extremely professionally. The room was fantastic, although a little dated - i.e. a flat screen and some redecoration to fix pealing paint would be good for a hotel of this standard.
Wifi worked well, but not well enough for a Skype Video call. Shower was hot with great pressure and the Gym and pool area was better equipped than most in the UK!
Around the hotel there are a multitude of places to eat from the extremely cheep to the incredibly expensive.
The only things that seem to let this place down were the exorbitant prices for drinks (something that the hotel could look at) and the fact that there is a lot of noise from outside that at time made it difficult to sleep, which I suppose you can't expect them to do to much about.
All in all, if I was coming to Quito again, I'd stay there...
