Exploring the Area

Parque El Ejido

Cathedral de Quito (Catedral Voto Nacional)


It was my first time to visit Quito and while there are two Hilton properties in the city (the other one is the new Hampton by Hilton Carolina Park), this is actually my favorite. First the location is great as it is close El Ejido Park and there are lots of restaurant and shops nearby. The Old Town is about 20 minutes walk. The rooms are a bit dated but was spacious, the upgrade to the Executive Room with views of the Old Town including the tower of the Basilica del Voto Nacional was perfect. The breakfast offering was very good with several hot dishes (it was my first time to see ceviche offered in a breakfast buffet and it was very good). The offering in the Executive Lounge during the all-day refreshments and evening canapes was very good. Overall, for the price I paid, it was very worth it and would gladly stay here again when I am back to Quito 👍
