2 nights in Panama City

I'll be staying for 2 nights in Panama City and I would like to stay in a central location hotel. I will not have a car and Im looking for a hotel in a good neighborhood within walking distance to different attractions. What you recommend?

Do you have a budget? Either way any hotel in the El Congrejo section should fit the bill. I like the Hotel Panama as opposed to man of the others but that's because the pool is the best ever and I like sitting around relaxing during the day.

Second Borracho's recommendation of El Cangrejo area,

Also his suggestion of providing a litle more info on what you are looking for.

Not sure what you consder attractions, Cangrejo has shopping, entertainment and lots of restaurants within walking distance, not much in the way of historical or cultural sites, however Casco Viejo and the canal are only a short taxi ride.

Also are you traveling by yourself or with your wife/girlfriend?(I am assuming you are a guy)

But for what it is worth here are my suggestions:

Veneto - great party hotel, part of the Wyndham chain, not like any Wyndham in the States.

(do not stay here with wife/girlfriend)

El Panama - next to Veneto, as Borracho states best pool in PC

Both hotels about $180/night

Torres De Alba - $85 night- across the street from Veneto, like an apartment, no bar but does have breakfast.

Las Vegas - across street from Torres De Alba, another great location, rooms are pretty basic, rooms can also be noisy but it is about $50/night

Last suggestion- my favorite - Marriott, great service about 3 blocks from the others, rooms are quiet. There is a casino attached but not nearly as fun as the Veneto, usually between $179-$259/night

If traveling by yourself and your budget allows it stay at El Panama or the Veneto.

If traveling with wife/girlfriend stay at Torres de Alba or the Marriott.

See you are from Puerto Rico, I really like the island especially Old San Juan and El Yunque, look forward to getting back.
