Welcome to the Hotel Casona Quesada
In the increasingly touristic town of Suesca, the Hotel Casona Quesada has come to the forefront as one of the most refined hotel and dining options with facilities and services that bring history and modern living together.
The hotel adopted the name of the founder of Santafé de Bogotá due to the conqueror spending an extended period of time in this town, which was founded by him in 1537 on an ancient indigenous settlement. The accommodation is today established in the venue in which he possibly lived, at the age of 63 (1572), when he was tired and disappointed after a failed expedition in search of El Dorado.
Don Gonzalo lived on a few occasions in Suesca, where he certainly found the peace and quiet to write at least three books which were lost, one of those being “Los ratos de Suesca.” This tranquility is still offered by this mansion house which adopted his name in homage to his achievements, and at which guests can enjoy this colorfully decorated colonial house and its modern and welcoming services.
Hotel Casona Quesada remains a mainstay of the town. According to the Architect Designer, specializing in the restoration and conservation of monuments, who studied the property, throughout the decades the house has undergone several different modifications and additions which are “typical of the evolution of domestic architecture in this part of the country”. When designing the hotel, we sought to preserve some of the elements on each floor that have been built throughout the years and maintain the spirit of this colonial house in the savannah. This prestigious location has allowed the hotel to become an epicenter for tourists, athletes, congressman and travelers who are interested in discovering the history of Suesca.
The Hotel Casona Quesada has been formed in a large property, which with its two function rooms, collaborates to host business and social events. Within the 20 rooms, you can find an atmosphere reminiscent of the past, where you can enjoy all the comforts of modern-day. As can be seen in the bathrooms, which are comfortable and elegant, with period stone bathroom fittings. This dialogue between past and present creates a warm and welcoming experience. The corridors, decorated with antique elements converge in a central courtyard typical of colonial houses, which has been adapted for the enjoyment and relaxation of visitors.
For this reason, the Casona Quesada positions itself as one of the best options to accommodate tourists coming to Suesca, a town of indigenous origin.
