When this charming boutique hotel moved from its original location in late 2009, it transformed from pretty nice to spectacular. The larger property, a few blocks away from the old one, is set in a completely restored turn-of-the-century mansion that was formerly the home of an Ecuadorian tobacco magnate. Guests were entertained on the lavish ground floor, while the first floor was used as a private residence. Today, each accommodation varies in size and shape, although the regal, castle-like décor is consistent. An impressive collection of oil paintings, silver platters, Persian rugs, and four-poster bed frames were brought over from the old space. There is no regular dining service outside of breakfast and afternoon teatime, but meals from the kitchen can be ordered with advance notice.
