Rising above Independence Square in an historic district of Quito, Hotel Plaza Grande was formerly the home of the Spanish conquistador Juan Diaz de Hidalgo before been conscientiously remodelled. Its restaurant serves French and traditional Ecuadorian specialties, and a wine bar offers live music at weekends.
Offering 15 spacious suites, each handsomely appointed with colonial-style furnishings and tapestries, Hotel Plaza Grande is decorated with heavy drapes and original artworks that set off the traditional ambiance. In addition, a stately presidential option with noise-reducing windows ensures total peace.
Why we like Hotel Plaza Grande
Boasting a sought-after location and a vintage Spanish feel, Hotel Plaza Grande has an old-world feel and traditional spirit that is bolstered by little touches of detail, including local chocolates and fresh roses.
The colonial centre of Quito is a treasure trove of baroque art and architecture, including spectacular churches and monasteries and networks of narrow streets that reflect the nation’s unique blend of Spanish and indigenous cultures.
