High-end hotel planned for Quito airport

Dec 9, 2013

The investment group Pronobis will begin construction in January on a $17 million, 160,000-meter, 140-room hotel adjacent to the new Quito airport.

To be called the Wyndham Grand Hotel Condor, the hotel will include conference space, classrooms, offices and small meeting rooms and hopes to attract corporate and government business that is currently conducted in Quito.

Pronobis says there is need for both lodging and business meeting facilities close to the airport because of the drive-time to Quito, which varies from one to two hours, depending on traffic.
