We spent 4 nights in the Quito Marriott in January prior to a Galapagos cruise. The hotel is immaculately clean and very luxurious. The lobby and public areas were wonderful, and filled with gorgeous arrangements of roses, which are grown in abundance outside Quito.
Our room was huge and very comfortable, just like a 5 star American hotel room. The service was excellent, and the staff at the reception desk already knew us by name the morning after we checked in. The only thing that might discourage one from staying there is that it is a very American hotel, and does not really reflect much Ecuadoran culture. It also is a bit far from the old town of Quito, so you have to take a taxi to see most of the sights. They will arrange tours for you through the concierge at the hotel, but we found that their price was much higher than we paid hiring a driver on our own to take us out of Quito to go touring.
The hotel restaurants had very good food--surprisingly good for hotel restaurants, in our opinion.
In terms of value, we were booked into the hotel as part of a package put together for us by Galapagosislands.com, so I don't really know what it would cost booked alone, but we felt that we got a very good deal for the package, even though we added extra nights in Quito.
