Fabulous 8.6 From 266 reviews

Good 6.0
Nice hotel, mediocre service.
Hotel is a nice venue in the heart of the Casco. It is comfortable and up to date; however, there are several lingering issues with this hotel. The soft product, that is to say-service, is somewhat lacking. As one of the most expensive hotels in the city, I would have expected more. My room did not have a shower curtain/glass and water would get everywhere. I asked the hotel to correct it, that was never fixed. The best part was when a wedding was held in the lobby with music blasting until 1am-that two stories up you could clearly hear in the rooms. Hotel management claimed they sent a letter, but nobody in my group received the letter. I had to switch rooms which eventually fixed the noise issue (and the shower). However, I am shocked a hotel would allow for such a loud event on a night. Overall, the hotel was nice but service was somewhat lacking. I did not use the gym/pool but it did look nice.

Great location but few things to be aware of: 1) the bathroom showers do not have a curtain which means water gets all over the bathroom floor and 2) because of the location, it can get loud depending on where your room is located. I would not stay here again for the price. Better options are available.

Very spacious junior suite, coffee or sent always restocked and had to call multiple times. Blackout curtains on two windows negated by east-facing window with broken curtain that didn't close all the way. Great bathroom amenities, very strong wifi in room, great rooftop pool, full breakfast buffet. Centrally located on main square & easy walk to all museums

I delightful night stay
Although we arrived before check in the staff accommodated us so that we could walk around town while waiting for our rooms or wait in the lobby. Comfortable and clean for a very good nights sleep. Don’t expect views, but, being close to shopping and restaurants as wells as museums by foot makes this a great location. Enjoyed the included breakfast buffet before our flight out in the morning. Loved the stair case, too! Elevators were also appreciated at times, though:)

Great place to stay, but
Wonderful place to stay. Right in the middle of Old Town Panama City. Lots to do in the area. I wish I could rate it perfect but the bathroom had a horrible smell. We requested another room which was better, but we had to leave the bathroom drains closed to avoid the sewer gas smell. Too bad, otherwise a perfect stay
