One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in! The first thing I want to point out is the mattress. Even though many international hotels, even expensive ones in Quito, have much firmer mattresses, this Marriott has the signature nice American type hotel mattresses. After two weeks on hard mattresses, my back and muscles were super thankful for this place. Upon arrival, you see bellmen with top hats and long tail coats. The entrance is covered and on a corner, setting the building apart. As you enter, everyone says "Bienvenidos." Efrain at the front desk was absolutely wonderful during our check in and check out process. Every worker is well dressed and very friendly, going out of their way to tend to you desires. Four restaurants onsite including their own where breakfast is served. Breakfast is worth every dime! If they have it available at check in, they may try to upsell your room. For $60 per night we received breakfast for two, a 10th floor larger room (versus 3rd floor, view is AMAZING), and access to the executive lounge. If you can do it, just say YES!
