We have traveled extensively and experienced a wide range of lodgings. The Casa San Marcos, in Quit, Ecuador stands out as perhaps our most delightful and extraordinary hotel experience. The location, the artistic tastefulness of it (the owner was an antique dealer), the maintenance and attention, the fine, fine personalized dining patio, and most of all the thorough congeniality and...

Dear Clients: Thank you very much for your kind opinion on our Colonial hotel, we feel very lucky to have attended such a wonderful couple full of grace and knowledge, especially being a film critic and art lover.

We spent one very memorable night at Casa San Marcos, the 73rd lodging of our round-the-world trip. We had previously spent a night in Quito at the clean but fairly standard Swissotel, and I would choose Casa San Marcos in a heartbeat. We particularly loved our romantic dinner in the art gallery: candlelit, private room, excellent wine and service. The...

If slick, corporate, and soulless with cavernous meeting rooms is what you seek in a hotel, this one's not for you. If a world-class meal served on a coffee table in front of a crackling fire, in a grand exquisitely-appointed living room appeals to you, book it now! From breakfast on the gorgeous terrace to the eclectically antique-furnished guest rooms,...

Casa San Marcos was among our favorite accommodations. Mayra and her staff are absolutely lovely and attentive. The home is in a beautiful setting in old town Quito and is teaming with treasures. Casa San Marcos is truly a magic place, with the best food we had in Quito. Thank you for such a lovely stay!!!!

We stayed at Casa San Marcos the night before our Galapagos Cruise, and we were so charmed that we changed our hotel (from the J.W.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa San Marcos, a house of treasures Publicado el 10/Noviembre/2011 | 14:51By LANCE BRASHEAR on the Miami HeraldCasa San Marcos - a boutique hotel along what is slowly becoming a cultural corridor in central Quito - was, until recently, a house obscured by time. But the passage of time has a way of not just hiding treasures, but also revealing them when the right person comes along. The name Jose Jaime Ortiz was all but lost as the architect of Casa San Marcos until archives discovered in recent years revealed the hand behind the craftsmanship. Ortiz is now recognized as one of Quito's most formidable architects from the turn of the 18th century and is credited with a dozen structures in Quito including the El Sagrario Church, the reconstruction of La Merced Church, and the tower of Santo Domingo Church. ... more   less
