Casa Foch was built in the 1930s, when residents of the downtown colonial area began moving out into prestigious neighborhoods like La Mariscal. Casa Foch is located on the street Mariscal Foch, which is at the heart of the Mariscal district, Quito’s main tourist area. Casa Foch Boutique Hotel’s recent two-year renovation closely followed the original design of the building, leaving the exterior facade identical to the original and keeping the warmth of the home intact.
