This central Guayaquil hotel has a great range of dining options and facilities.

This large, modern hotel is close to Guayaquil’s downtown area, and within easy reach of attractions including the Parque Histórico Guayaquil, the Botanical Garden and the Las Peñas neighbourhood — the birthplace of the city and famous for its colonial architecture. Just a 15-minute drive away is the Malecón 2000, Guayaquil's 1½-mile-long regenerated version of the old Simón Bolívar boardwalk overlooking the Guayas River — here you can visit museums, go shopping, eat out at a range of restaurants and take a day or night tour along the river.

There's a great range of places to eat here. Head to Cafe Colon for buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as afternoon tea time buffet. Tuck into delicious Japanese dishes at Kioto Sushi Bar at the shopping arcade, or the succulent meat and seafood grill at Vereda Tropical Restaurant. The refurbished Sal y Pimienta serves pizzas, fast food and pastries, while Portofino Restaurant does great Italian food with a selection of wines.

If you fancy relaxing after a day of exploring, try out the sauna and steam baths in the hotel spa, kick back by the pool and enjoy a cocktail from Coco Bar, or grab some snacks and drinks at the Atrium Bar. Upgrade from a standard Guest Room to an Executive Room or Suite — Suites are spacious and elegant, and some come with a whirlpool bath.
