Fodor's Review

On the southwest corner of Plaza de San Francisco, this historic mansion opened its renovated doors in late 2011 as Quito's newest boutique hotel. Guests are greeted at check-in with a restorative herbal drink, the perfect remedy for the combination of travel and the Andean location, and the top-notch service continues throughout your stay. Common areas such as the terrace and glass-covered courtyard combine plush seating with touches of whimsical; Art Nouveau and Neo-classical design touches are throughtout the property. The decorative molding of the 15-foot-high ceilings is enough to take your breath away, if the altitude hasn't already. Rooms are done in light blues and neutrals with marble-clad bathrooms and convenient additions like iPod adapters and free wi-fi. Dinners in the ground-floor restaurant are especially relaxing after a long day of exploring, the quiet space is only open to hotel guests in the evening.
