In Quito: Casa Gangotena Hotel. Situated in a newly-restored historic mansion overlooking Plaza San Francisco, the three-story Casa Gangotena Boutique Hotel in Quito harbors 31 rooms, a showcase of eye-catching style, contemporary design, antiques, fine furnishings, modern technologies and quintessential comforts. The hotel rooms, with both double and king-size beds, are arrayed across all three of its floors. Due to the property’s heritage character, rooms vary in size, although they are all comfortably ample, averaging 35 square meters (377 square. feet) in area. All benefit from the mansion’s elegant tall ceilings which draw the bright Andean sunlight into their interiors.
Rooms have rich carpets, towering window frames, flowing curtains and Art Deco-style furniture such as desks, armoires, tables and armchairs. All the rooms are air-conditioned, non-smoking and sound-proofed, with private bathrooms (nearly all with separate bathtubs and showers), and with telephones, intelligent key-cards, in-room safe boxes, wireless internet and flat-screen TV sets with international cable channels.
On the ground floor, two Luxury rooms have garden access. On the first floor, the Balcony Junior Suite overlooks the garden with views directing south of the city. There are also nine Luxury rooms and four Plaza View rooms. On the second floor, they have eight Luxury rooms and four Plaza View rooms. On both the first and second floors, one suite can be separated to make two connecting or individual Luxury rooms. Finally, two Luxury rooms complete the picture of the third floor.
Beautifully and eclectically appointed, the hotel invites its guests to explore and relax, whether in the dining room, glassed-in patio, garden redolent with the perfume of native flowers, wood-paneled library, or on its panoramic third-floor terrace.
