Thanks for the tips! I visited Quito this past April and really enjoyed it. I stayed in the old town area. While not much at night (but nothing a taxi ride could solve) wanted to stay somewhere different. I will check out these places!

There are actually not many nice hotels in the old city. Most people stay mid-town, near the Mariscal District, and travel to the old town in the daytime to see the sights. A lot of the old palaces were converted into poor housing in the mid 20th Century, bringing the quality of the area down and a little dangerous at night. I'm not sure if this counts as mid range - as opposed to high - but the Cafe Cultura is a lovely boutique hotel right in the heart of El Mariscal, and on the side of the tourist district closest to the old city. Its a fantastic spot that merges luxurious comforts with local charm.
