Plaza Grande / Luxury
Originally the mansion of a Spanish conquistador, the Plaza Grande Hotel was restored in 2005 to highlight its colonial glory and incorporate modern luxury. The 15 exquisite suites contain opulent colonial pieces, heavy drapes, and fine fabrics. Among the historic refinement, touches such as soundproof windows, Jacuzzi tubs, and large flat screen TVs cater to modern creature comforts. The hotel is located on Quito's main square and contains gourmet restaurants, a wine cellar, and a select spa.
