Plaza Grande Hotel


A Timeless Stay

Rising high above Quito's central square, Plaza de la Independencia, Plaza Grande is one of the first hotels ever built in the capital. It is ideally located to explore the wonders of this timeless city.

The hotel has been extensively renovated and is now one of the finest boutique hotels in the city. Each of its 15 suites are comfortable and spacious beautifully decorated with gold and bronze colors.

When you're not exploring the beautiful city around you can find comfort in the hotel. Enjoy the delicious Ecuadorian cuisine in the hotel's restaurants paired with some fine wine from the hotels own cellar. In the evenings you can enjoy the sweeping views across the beautiful old town from the fourth floor's balcony.
