Set directly on Plaza de la Independencia in the historic district of Quito, Hotel Plaza Grande is arguably one of the city's finest boutique hotels. This former home of the Spanish conquistador Juan Diaz de Hidalgo has been painstakingly restored and offers 15 spacious suites including a stately presidential option with noise-reducing windows to ensure total peace.
All suites are beautifully appointed with heavy drapes, colonial style furnishings and original art and tapestries, but with all the modern amenities such as large flat screen televsions and wi-fi access.
Dining options at Hotel Plaza Grande include gourmet French cuisine and traditional Ecuadorian specialties, while the wine bar features live music at weekends. Spa treatments are available on request.
