We have just returned from Quito having stayed at the excellent Plaza Grande Hotel which is right in the middle of old Quito right by the President's Palace. We were additionally lucky because the President was being visited by Prince Phillipe of Spain which was very interesting as it happened right outside our window.
The food is great with many Ecuadorian choices including Cuy [Guinea Pig] for those who like lots of bones with not much meat!
Our room [23 and 29] were spacious and nicely decorated in the old style. We ate in both the coffee shop and the restaurant proper and we were treated to an "opera evening" from two singers who serenaded the tables.
This is a traditional old hotel and is decorated accordingly but with all the usual moodern touches including wifi. The other good hotels in Quito are mostly situated out of the old town and are therefore out of touch with the interesting part of the town. Most of the best attractions are nearlby and you might also be lucky enough to see an important visitor to the President! this hotel was a great choice.

Room Tip: Go for a room/suite facing the President's Palace or Square as the view is better.

The Hotel Plaza Grande was my most favourite hotel of the tour ... it is a luxurious 5-star hotel in a fabulous location on central square

Enjoyed an evening of fine wine and gourmet fusion food whilst listening to live opera music in the La Belle Epoque restaurant. The service and atmosphere were second to none and the food exquisite...

Hello,

We were lucky to be treated as VIP guests from our travel agency before taking our Galapagos cruise. I had booked with columbusecuador.com and got the room for 250 usd a night. This is a lot of money for equador but the room quality, bed sheets, jacuzzi bath, hotel special attentions, hotels location just made up for one of the best nights before our Galapagos cruise. I can heartly recommend it.

Recently used the Plaza Grande for a group of approximately 24 passengers; 12 rooms plus suites. The hotel is beautiful, the staff kind and generous, and extremely service oriented. Plaza Grande is owned by Suiss Hotels and is excellently located next to the Presidential Palace in Quito. The building is historical and recently refurbished to the highest standards. The price is reasonable for a luxury hotel. I recommend this hotel highly for any traveller looking for an upscale, intimate boutique hotel in Quito.

Thsi Hotel offers First Class Service from all Staff on the Property. Very friendly staff allows your stay to be very inviting. One employee in particular by the name of Wilmer Bravo went out of his way to buy a local package of food for us to take back to the States. We were just simply talking about it and the next thing we new, he was at our door with the package. The Property is located right in the square with easy access to several attractions to see. The rooms are very nice and spacious. We would surely stay here on our next trip to Quito.

Excellent service from top to bottom, and the staff went out of their way to help with travel issues and early morning and later departures. Very large rooms that had great amenities and had the extra touch of roses, welcome desserts, and large areas for sitting and/or happy hours with friends. The bed was extremely comfortable and I wish I had one more night of sleep here. The rooms were also very quiet. Although some people would consider it pricey and I would agree that this is considered a splurge place by me I would still highly recommend it if you can afford it. Location is good for old town quito but as mentioned in other reviews make sure you know that old town is very quiet at night when most shops and restaurants are closed.
