Lodging in Quito - Sheraton

Last year we took a trip to Ecuador and our base was Quito. we flew from there to Galapagos Cruise (1 week) then back to Quito for a night or two, then out to the rain forest (5days) and back to Quito and then Bellavista cloud forest.

The Sheraton has a separate tower with 'extended stay suites', to which they upgraded us for free because of my husband's Starwood platinum status, even though we were only there for a night or two each stay. This turned out to be awesome because the extended stay suites have a washer and dryer. we were able to wash all our filthy clothes after the Galapagos Cruise and again after the rain forest trip.

The extended stay suite also has a kitchen, and two bathrooms rather than one. Perfect for families. Though a little less luxurious than their regular rooms.

I don't know what they normally charge for the extended stay suites, but it was awesome to be able to wash all our dirty, sweaty and damp (the rain forest was extremely humid) clothes several times during the trip. And of course we were able to leave excess luggage at the Sheraton between all of our excursions.

The Sheraton was very close to a large shopping mall with lots of restaurant options, but unfortunately was not very convenient to the tourist sites in quito.
