Fodor's Expert Review J.W. Marriott
Av. Francisco de Orellana 1172, at Av. Amazonas, Quito, Pichincha, 170109, Ecuador
This futuristic pyramid is a world unto itself: there's an ATM, heated outdoor pools for adults and children, four restaurants, a well-stocked gift shop, and a gym with fitness classes. It's a solid 20 minutes' drive from centro historico, but it's a big, immaculate hotel with service to match. The building is antiseismic, but rooms still have floor-to-ceiling windows, offering expansive views of Volcán Pichincha or the city from every room. Rooms underwent recent renovation and now have handsome honey-colored hardwood floors rather than carpeting, soundproof windows, and down bedding. A rollaway twin can be added to the spacious standard rooms, making this a good option for families with one or two children. A large, glass-enclosed lobby adds elegance and natural light. 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 solid choice if you're just a tourist.
