Fodor's Review

This futuristic pyramid has floor-to-ceiling windows offering expansive views of Volcán Pichincha or the city from every room. A large, glass-enclosed lobby adds elegance. Within walking distance are a business district and several shopping malls. The business crowd comes here for the executive floors and the largest meeting space in Quito, but it's also a good choice if you're just a tourist.

J.W. Marriott Review

My spouse and I stayed at the JW Marriott Quito for two nights in mid-February 2011 prior to a Celebrity Xpedition cruise to the Galapagos and again for one night in late-February 2011 after our cruise. So much has been written about this hotel that I'm not sure that I have much new information to share, so I’ll just focus on some of the things that I haven’t read before. Windows in the rooms open (or a small part of the large window opens), so

you can get fresh air in your room. No beer is served on Sundays in either the bars or the restaurants; however, you can have alcohol delivered to your room via room service to “skirt the issue”. Smoking is permitted in the lobby bar and outside the main entrance. The breakfast buffet is rather extensive, as others have said, and if you want a Diet Coke or something that you don’t see on the buffet, just order it - we didn’t have to pay extra for a few carbonated beverages at breakfast. Although we reserved a suite on the cruise, we weren’t placed on the executive/concierge level in this hotel; however, all the suite passengers seemed to be located together in the hotel on a high floor with views of the swimming pool.The rooms were spacious, as were the bathrooms, with separate standing shower and soaking tub. This is a nice Western-style hotel, and foreigners need not worry about feeling comfortable.

5 star review

This is a lovely upscale hotel; very pretty public spaces. The staff are attentive and pleasant. The rooms are attractive  but a little too typical developed world to give you a sense of the exotic location. The bathrooms were spacious, clean and very nice. The restaurants were all very-good. The buffet included local and inter-national food and proved both visually appealing and tasty. The spa and pool are amazing and spotlessly clean. This

is what a five-star hotel is supposed to be.
