Hotel San Francisco de Quito. Great location in the heart of colonial Quito, 2 blocks from Plaza Grande and Plaza San Francisco. $38-42 per night. Best room is near the observation deck, about $52 a night. Worth it but you have to climb several sets of stairs. Do ask for room on the upper patio floors, away from the desk. Helpful staff, stored belongings during our comings and goings to the Galapagos and Amazonia, no charge. Very clean, beds very comfortable, very safe, some street noise, bring ear plugs. Spanish language only on the TV, no CNN. Restaurant on premises not so good but lots of options in the area. Or take a $2-3 cab ride to Mariscal section for more choices. We enjoyed Fruiterria Monserrat for fresh fruit and cream, and the pizza place next door to it, both about a 1 1/2 blocks from the hotel. Also El Maple in the Mariscal for vegetarian food. Hotel San Francisco de Quito is a more typical Ecuadoran establishment. If you'd like a US style hotel, try the Radisson, for $58 a night, clean, comfortable, CNN, generic.
