Quito is the capital of Peru. It’s set at a high elevation and is surrounded by a range of impressive volcanoes. Travelers have a good chance of spending some time here, and it’s well worth it to do so. The historic district (aka Old Town) offers up some interesting architecture and historic churches, making it a fascinating place to stroll around and take in the culture. Make your way to El Panecillo to enjoy panoramic views of the city, and if you have time, head to the Museo Nacional del Banco Central, which houses an impressive collection of pre-Columbian artifacts and colonial art.
The Hilton Colon Quito is an upscale and impressive hotel. Just like other Hilton hotels, this one is top-notch and offers a range of services and facilities. As a guest, you’ll be treated to comfy accommodations, tasty food, and plentiful amenities.
The rooms are contemporary and decorated in calming tones. If you’re traveling on business, you won’t have any trouble getting things done here—all guest rooms feature Wi-Fi and a work desk. Look out your window and enjoy panoramic views of the city and mountains. The rooms have large marble bathrooms with hot water showers and Peter Thomas Roth bathroom amenities. When you want to relax and kick back, flip on the 42-inch LCD TV and watch a show or a movie. Each room also has climate control, so you can get the room to your ideal temperature. You might also choose to upgrade to a more spacious and luxurious suite in the La Pinta Executive Tower.
After a long flight, it can be nice to move your body a little and work up a sweat. Guests of the Hilton Colon Quito can head to the fitness room to do so, where they’ll find treadmills, stationary bikes, free weights, and more. There’s also an outdoor swimming pool where you can relax or sunbathe, as well as a hot tub to soak in during cooler evenings. Travelers with children will appreciate the playground and babysitting service offered by the hotel (there’s also children’s video rentals, should you need to keep your tyke entertained).
When it’s time to eat, you can sample Ecuadorian and international fusion cuisine at the hotel’s buffet or enjoy fine dining at the El Dorado Gourmet. If you want fresh seafood, then head to the Kioto Sushi Bar. There are many ways to satisfy your hunger here.
The Hilton Colon Quito is also a great place to hold business meetings or international conventions. The hotel offers audio/visual equipment rental, cell phone rental, complimentary printing service, express mail, meeting rooms, and secretarial services.
