Hotels Gold Class Tren Crucero
Hotel Plaza Grande
Dominating Independence Square Quito is the Hotel Plaza Grande with over five centuries of history. When the Spanish founded Quito, the site was given to the conqueror Francisco Pizarro, the first house to be built in the 16th century. It was later inhabited by the wealthiest city families. In the early 20th century it was the city's first luxury hotel.
Today, the hotel is set apart due to its unique location in the historic heart of Quito’s main square – The Plaza Grande – boasting impressive views of the Government Palace, the Cathedral Church, and City Hall, as well as the Panecillo Hill in the distance.

As early as 1555, Hacienda Chuquipoguio (a former name) was owned by Don Hernando de La Parra. It was later owned by important figures in the history of this Spanish colony. The 'Revolution of the three pesos' or Marcista Revolution was planned here in March 1843.
