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
Visited a few times for breakfast while staying in Quito. On each occasion the breakfast was excellent with a huge selection of fruit meats, cheese, omlette pastries and local delicacies to choose from. Staff were always friendly and helpfull. I would definitely recommend
Everything is modern and squeeky clean. The staff goes out of their way to be helpful, especially Andrea, one of the managers. Camilla in the Club restaurant was also excellent.
Bottled water is provided in whatever quantity you need and the in room coffee makes the best cup of ANY hotel we've visited anywhere.
Be advised the the best dining option is purchasing the $65 "club option" upgrade. You get breakfast, a grab and go lunch bag and a HEAVY appetizers evening meal with wine and beer. Otherwise the restaurants are pricey. $25 breakfast buffet.
Hotel is centrally located so a walk to several of the local parks and botanic garden is doable.
I was staying there, no problems, However my colleague was to arrive so i in good faith paid his extra nights stay at the hotel in advance, My colleague didn't show up and they would not reverse the payment i had made even tho 3 nights cost were already guranteed.
Horrible Internal politics and policy
