Hotel Plaza Grande has an ideal location on Quito’s central square, surrounded by iconic buildings including the Metropolitan Cathedral, Government Palace, the Archbishop’s Palace and the modern City Hall. It was one of the first hotels to be opened in the city, back in the 16th century and has been lovingly restored to become one of Quito’s finest boutique hotels, preserving all the original colonial charm.

The main dining room is La Belle Belle, which overlooks the Plaza and specializes in high gourmet French cuisine. The café Plaza Grande serves traditional local cuisine and at The Cloister Wine Bar, open every evening, you can enjoy live music in a medieval ambiance. A Cognac and Cigar Bar and a Champagne Bar are located on the upper floor and a gym, small spa, sauna and massage room is located on the first floor.

The first ever city to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Inca ruins may be scarce but the city is awash with ancient culture and traditions. See the baroque churches of the Old Town or head for the hills of Panecillo on the cable cars. The markets are great for finding Inca handicrafts.
