I would look for hotels with better views & better location on my next trip to Panama City. The consierge put everything together for our canal tour & flights/resort in Bocas. She gets five star rating. The hotel is on a street that is difficult to access. Some taxi drivers did not know where the hotel was (tell then it... More

My experience overall was 4 star while my expectation was for 5star+. Great location, Beautiful inviting lobby, excellent front of house staff, concierge, doorstaff. My room was nicely appointed. The restaurant décor did not appeal to my personal taste and service at breakfast was acceptable but not fantastic (food was ok but the staff were not overly cheerful). My main... More

My family and I recently stayed at The Waldorf Astoria Panama for four nights in mid-December (2014). Having experienced the original Waldorf=Astoria in NYC and having traveled the world as a HHonors Diamond member, I did have certain expectations when it came to staying at a Waldorf property. While the staff was very warm, gracious and helpful, the hotel unfortunately... More

To premise this review by saying I am a diamond member with HILTON who stays over 150 nights and more than 40 different hotel properties a year around the world. If you are a HHonors member do not stay here. The Hilton is a much better buy. There is no executive lounge, they are not allowed to provide breakfast vouchers... More

I stayed at 5 different hotels on my recent trip to Panama and I would put the Waldorf as #3 on the list. It has a beautiful lobby, fast elevators and nice rooms but some of the things that one looks forward to using at a 5 star hotel could use improvement. My largest complaint is the Pool/Spa Area. The... More

Recently visited Panama for business and looked forward to staying at the Waldorf. I had read reviews of the hotel and though not as favorable as I expected to see I decided to give it a try of my own. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. The room was quite small, nothing special or that stood out to me... More

Even though my stay in this nitro is usually a overnight, it is always a pleasure arriving to de hotel room, cozy, beautiful the mattress and the linings are wonderful, service is good, and this is quite hard to ask in panama. The restaurant is not the best, and always I choose dining out.

Good location with almost waterfront. Grand foyer, good size rooms, decent service - but everything cost extra (on your final invoice, bell boys, room cleaning...) - and a tad of Faulty Towers, with little things going wrong on a regular basis. Overall a good stay and a decent 4 star, but nothing much more.

We had business to take care of on this trip, so we needed to be close to downtown and the location was perfect. We have been to Panama prior to this trip for vacation purposes and stayed at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort. I was worried the hotel wouldn't be kid friendly enough for my children but they had a fantastic... More
