The Plaza Grande Hotel in Quito
The Plaza Grande Hotel sits on the famous corner of García Moreno and Chile in the Historic Old Town District of Quito. Overlooking the square, the hotel offers modern-day luxury with colonial nostalgia to presidents, diplomats, millionaires and celebrities visiting this bustling capital city.

Successfully combining the colonial with the contemporary, this luxurious hotel is the place for elite to gather. Its quaint balconies, arched windows and colorful façade (reminiscent of many colonial structures in the district) lend old-world charm to this neoclassical and eclectic structure.

The five-star hotel boasts fifteen suites, three restaurants, a spa, a banquet hall, carriages for night tours, a wine cellar and wedding packages. Every detail in this hotel is meticulous and intentional, from the heated marble floors in the bathrooms to the scent of Ecuadorian roses piped into the rooms, from the selection of international newspapers to antiallergenic linens on the beds and noise reducing windows. All suites contain a Jacuzzi, wireless internet, and Cable TV.

On the first floor, guests can eat in the Restaurant Belle Epoque, which features international gourmet cuisine. The champagne and Cigar-Cognac bar graces the fourth floor, and on the main floor visitors wishing to sample traditional Ecuadorian cuisine can have over 100 dishes prepared by top chefs in the Café Plaza Grande, an English-style café nostalgic of the original Majestic Hotel. The Claustro Cava de Vinos, an underground wine cellar, not only has the best vintages of wine, but also live music and dances, such as flamenco and salsa.
