DANN CARLTON QUITO HOTEL * Visit Dann Carlton Hotel´s website by clicking on the logo IN THE HEART OF A MODERN TOWN Whether the trip is for business or pleasure, in summer or winter, for one day or many, the key consideration in the mind of a traveler is the hotel´s location, which must be perfect in every way. The Dann Carlton Quito Hotel is near the business and financial districts, a short distance from the three most important shopping malls and an array of quality restaurants with varied cuisine. Also, just a few steps away from La Carolina park and the Atahualpa Olympic stadium. It´s right in the heart of a modern town. The hotel offers everything a guest requires when traveling: specialized customer service, security and comfort. But, above and beyond that, is the hotel´s privileged location. Transportation to business meetings will not take more than fifteen minutes. Shopping malls are but five minutes away. Quito´s colonial downtown, only twenty minutes. Many renowned restaurants are located within a three-mile radius and, if this were not enough, lovers of outdoor sports will be delighted to know that they need only walk three hundred feet to reach La Carolina park. The experience begins upon arrival. The lobby is lively. Guests of various nationalities come and go. Executives in suits and ties as well as those dressing casually, traditional tourists as well as those seeking adventure, fans coming to watch a soccer game as well as those arriving to attend a concert… All of them different, but all sharing a similar expectation: luxury lodgings with quality service, at competitive rates, at the best location in Quito. No other lodging option can beat these added values. Rooms, restaurants, gyms and meeting rooms are available in all hotels. But, undoubtedly, these facilities are special. Maybe it´s due to the sober décor or the ample space or the marvelous views or the conveniences which, blended with excellent customer service, make this a special hotel. Add also the fact that the pool, spa, sauna, steam room and fully equipped gym are located on the top floor. This ensures a decidedly peaceful and private space dedicated to the physical pampering of our guests. The interior decor is modern, quite appropriate for a hotel of this category. Each area has a specific assignment to deliver customer satisfaction. All tastes are catered and nothing is happenstance. Every detail has been analyzed to obtain the best outcome. The sum of these wise choices produces an unforgettable experience for our visitors. A buffet breakfast, served in the ample and modern facilities of the Luxembourg Café, surprises all patrons with its marvelous display and infinite number of choices. To start a hectic business or tourist day, a serving of fruits, cereals, pancakes, eggs, hams, empanadas (stuffed bread or pastry, baked or fried) ceviches (fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices), etc., exceeds expectations. The Café also serves lunch daily as well as a buffet dinner. Sundays, however, are very special days. An enthralling display of typical Ecuadorean cuisine attracts citizens and foreigners to live a surprising culinary experience. Another choice is the Europa Café that dazzles with its refined décor and outstanding menu, starting 7:30 in the morning. In this charming ambiance, the key is the uniqueness of the offerings which, although already well known, are prepared in an innovative fashion, from light appetizers to sandwiches in a variety of breads to forceful salads delicately dressed. Natural fruit juices, herbal teas and diverse coffees are the perfect complement. A few steps away, across the lobby, is the Liverpool Bar, an elegant atmosphere decorated in the best English pub style. An ample selection of cocktails, liquors and wines are accompanied by a broad menu of snacks. It´s the ideal place to relax in the evening, to meet friends for drinks or to enjoy the sports events shown on its big screen TVs. The London Tea Room, another magical space in the hotel lobby, welcomes a limited number of guests in an atmosphere of privacy and personal attention. The English style decoration is perfectly combined with fine crockery and cutlery of the same origin, in which delicious snacks are served from a menu planned to surprise those who enjoy it.
