JW Marriott Quito’s stone and glass pyramid structure adds a modern edge to the restored New Town of Ecuador’s colonial capital. Inside, mahogany tables, leather loungers and reflecting marble floors fill the sunny atrium lobby, where a waterfall flows into a stone-lined pond. The guestrooms and common areas hold a casual vibe, with colonial-style wallpaper and diamond-patterned carpets.
Bed & Bath
Spacious rooms overlook the city or Andean Mountains and have heavy wood pieces, comfy chairs, fluffy bedspreads and loads of down pillows that are garnished with a single rose at nightly turndown. For rooms on floors seven through nine, private balconies facing Cotopaxi Volcano add an extra perk. No less airy are the marble bathrooms, with soaking tubs, separate showers and soothing Ecuadorian bath salts.
A well-equipped gym hosts fitness classes, the spa offers body scrubs, wraps and massages, and the expansive outdoor heated swimming pool is an urban resort oasis decked out with cascading waterfalls and a central Jacuzzi island. There’s no shortage of places to eat and drink on site. Start the day at Bistro Latino, with a buffet of eggs made to order, fresh fruit juices like tamarillo (tree tomato) and Ecuador’s national dish, ceviche. Mexican flavors and margaritas are on tap at Don Porfirio, while La Hacienda, the new wine cellar, is making a splash on Quito‘s wine scene, with dozens of varieties to pair with Argentine beef dishes.
How to Get There
spacious room but overlooking a parking lot. I didn´t have breakfast but the buffet looked varied. The gym is th best of the hotel. It does not have typical food restaurants, they have steak and Asian restaurants. Transfers are very expensive. In sheraton quito I was received with fruit in the room.
The hotel and customer service at this location was exceptional. The rooms were modern and clean. The executive lounge was amazing - the staff was incredibly accommodating and the food was very good. I had a very late flight and the front desk provided access to the executive lounge as well as other amenities until I was ready to leave for the airport. The area was nice and quiet. I actually walked to Old Town from here, which probably took 45 minutes to an hour. The walk was direct, easy, and safe. Truly one of the best experiences I've recently had when traveling. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others traveling in Quito.
Stayed here for 4 nights, two each before and after a Galapagos cruise, which was quite handy as we were able to leave some of our luggage behind at the hotel while on our cruise.This is a beautiful hotel, the rooms are quite spacious and the bathroom has a lovely soaker tub and large separate shower. The shampoo and conditioner were extremely high quality, would definitely be interested in purchasing on my own! The buffet breakfast had lots of fresh fruit and smoothies made to order. We really enjoyed the sushi bar and ate dinner there on two evenings, the cheesecake was exquisite! The shops were a pleasant surprise, the hotel gift shop had many unique and reasonably priced souvenirs but the highlight was finding (around a corner - not in general traffic area) the Galapagos Jewellery store which had beautiful silver jewellery - earrings, pendants, cufflinks, bracelets, etc at very reasonable prices. And the roses - beautiful displays in the hotel lobby and receiving personal roses at breakfast and on my bed in the evening made the stay a very memorable one.
