The Plaza Grande is located right in the political heart of Quito. It is literally next door to the Presidential Palace, the Archbishop’s home, the public library and several significant churches. The congested traffic in Quito means it might take you awhile to get here, but once you arrive you don’t have to go far to explore the city’s highlights.
From the moment I stepped foot into the lobby I was impressed by two things: the rich, ornate ambiance and the lovely, friendly staff. The entire hotel embraces this old-world, classic style through details such as wood paneling, chandeliers and intricate details. And true to Ecuadorian style, roses and other gorgeous flowers are found at every turn.
The rooms are tastefully decorated with comfortable beds, ensuring a good night’s rest. Modern conveniences, such as lightning quick Internet and flat screen TVs, are also available. The staff carries through their special touch with a luxurious turn down service including roses and chocolates on the pillows. Though my favorite part was the beautiful, spacious bathrooms with a huge bathtub featuring a grand flower arrangement.Of course, one of my favorite parts of the hotel was the restaurant, located just off the lobby. For breakfast I was served exotic fruits, cheese and syrup (yes, syrup – that was a fun discovery!) and delicately poached eggs. I was fortunate enough to also enjoy a lunch of the best empanadas and creative ceviche I tasted during my time in Ecuador. It was fascinating to enjoy this delectable cuisine while watching the daily activities of one of the busiest plazas in Quito. This truly is a special place for all guests and visitors.
