Hotel Plaza Grande

Blending in with the old city of Quito, the Plaza Grande Hotel fits right into this historically charmed area of town, with a first class view of the central square, Plaza de la Independencia. Considered one of the finest hotels in the capital, the suites have received exceptional care and individual fine-tuning to ensure a plush, old world experience accented by rich fabrics and incomparable ambiance. The Hotel Plaza Grande rises above Quito's central square, known as the Plaza de la Independencia. It was one of the first hotels ever constructed in the capital, and has been extensively renovated and remodeled to become the finest boutique hotel in the city. It is the ideal place from which to explore the wonders of this timeless city. Quito was declared a UNESCO "World Heritage Site" in 1978, thanks to its historic center, which is the largest and best preserved in Latin America. The colonial center of the Franciscan city of Quito is a treasure trove of baroque art and architecture, including buildings, churches, monasteries and narrow streets that reflect Ecuador's unique blend of indigenous and Spanish cultures.
