Plaza Grand Hotel, Quito

An integral part of the very first UNESCO World Heritage Site, Plaza Grand marks the very heart of Quito. Across from the palace and cathedral, it was formerly the grandest mansion in the Americas, then the grandest hotel in the Americas. 

After a period of neglect, the Plaza Grand was refurbished and reopened in 2005. You can smell the history here, such elegance and opulence on every floor. It’s boutique, but not pretentious, just glorious in its ode to heritage. 

This is comfortably Quito’s finest hotel and the location is unbeatable for exploring the city’s main highlights. You will literally be staying inside the history.
