On vacation, to see the sites, first timer. Across from Panama Canal, get a canal side room. Very friendly staff, assured safety and security. Staff even called once to say the door had not latched. Very clean, tile floors, small pool and gym area. Restaraunt and bar on site, small shopping store, similar to a 7/11, in walking distance, with... More

Good mattress - always important for me. View from the sixth floor of the ships coming into the Miraflores Lock was super! Loved having passion fruit at the breakfast buffet, and the seafood dinners in the restaurant were delicious (we were there for "marisco night"). The hotel is clean and comfortable, and reception staff always friendly and helpful. Special accolades... More

Great location, helpful staff and great swimming pool. Paid $90 for the night which seemed high at the time but after traveling Panama, this hotel was better than the average but below the average price I paid. As for location, its right across the street from the canal, maybe 20 minute drive from Panama City which is out of the... More

Had an absolutely amazing stay at the Holiday Inn, overlooking the Panama Canal! Woke up every morning to see the huge ships passing through the canal, and was within walking distance of a beautiful park nearby to exercise everyday! Rooms were very clean, but what impressed me most were the unbelievably helpful and genuinely friendly staff from the front desk,... More

HI as you know varies in quality around the world. This is a nice one. We stayed here New Years Eve and it was a party. $50 got us a nice buffet, all we could drink, DJ with a good sound system, party favors and bubbly at midnight. They lost money on our table.

It had been a while since I stayed at this HI. Location and view of the canal is what makes this a good place to stay although not central as far as downtown Panama. Property is on the newer side. Front desk service was good and priority club recognition great. Nice gesture to have a fresh plate of snacks and... More

While the rooms were clean and the restaurant quite good, the Internet was horrible. Furthermore, the IT rep was unable to keep anything beyond a weak wireless signal or a reliable cable connection. We could send some text-based e-mail but could not bring up a web page. As a businessman, I need to stay connected. If that means driving an... More
