Following a $4.5 million renovation, Radisson Hotel Group has opened the new Park Inn by Radisson Quito, Ecuador.

The hotel is close to the Zona Rosa section of the city at Reina Victoria Avenue and Calama, as well as the city’s fast-growing financial and business districts.

“We are thrilled to reintroduce one of our excellent brands in the great city of Quito, while exemplifying our growth strategy for Latin America,” said Frances Gonzalez, VP of operations for Radisson Hotel Group in Latin America.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The hotel has 55 guestrooms and suites, a fitness center, a business center, a restaurant and two onsite meeting spaces.  

Juan Carlos Galindo, CEO of hotel operator OxoHotel, said that the new property would “positively impact Quito” as a whole. 

The interest from Stockholm-based Radisson Hotel Group makes sense. In 2017, we reported that European operators were eyeing Ecuador's tourism potential as they considered investing up to $850 million in the country's hotel infrastructure. That year, nearly 1.61 million tourists visited Ecuador, up from 1.42 million a year earlier. While the numbers from 2018 have not yet been finalized, the growing demand suggests that cities like Quito will need more branded supply.
