We spent one night here, arriving from Cusco early afternoon & leaving mid-morning for the Galapagos Islands. The Hampton Inn is well situated to enjoy the revitalized riverfront, the 3 km Malecon.
Per request, we were met at the airport & driven downtown. While we were waiting for our room to be ready, we used the free internet in the business center. The staff was very helpful & pleasant. Our room was spacious with a TV & minibar. The view was tired, old Guayaquil, but the room was quiet.
In 5-10 minutes we were at the riverfront where there are towers to climb for views, a modern water tower, monuments, a few vendors, etc. People were obviously enjoying the park that includes a lovely extensive botanical garden as well as quite a large play area for children.
Security is obviously an issue in downtown. The hotel has a security guard 24/7 in the lobby who makes his presence known. We felt safe, including during our free shuttle to the airport. No one bothered us on the street or in the park (lots of security folks all over downtown).
We ate dinner & breakfast at the hotel. Both were tasty & nicely presented. The buffet breakfast has a nice assortment of items.
We probably won't ever go back to Guayaquil, but we enjoyed walking the riverfront.
