Set on the western bank of the Guayas River, which flows into the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Guayaquil, Swissotel Guayaquil, a new 300-room hotel, will offer guests enjoyable river views and access to the nation's main port. The hotel will be located at Malecón Simón Bolívar, between Roca, Panama and Luzarraga. The city is the capital of the Ecuadorian province of Guayas and the seat of the namesake canton.
Expected to open in 2017, Swissotel Guayaquil will join one other Swissotel property already successfully operating in Ecuador, Swissotel Quito, further expanding Swissotel’s presence in this burgeoning travel market. Establishing itself as an important part of the city, the current design for the complex features 180 high-end residences, a parking facility with 650 spaces and ground floor retail space for seven outlets.
