I enjoyed two nights at The Holiday Inn on the Panama Canal. From beginning to end, and without exception, the staff were approachable, helpful and friendly. As an IHG member, I was given a Canal view room on the 5th floor, which afforded spectacular views of the Panama Canal directly in front and of the Miraflores Locks just a shot... More

I had a great time at this hotel. A friend had recommended we stay in a canal-facing room for a night to watch the ships come through, and I am very glad I listened. We stayed in a 5th floor room with a great view of the canal, and saw ships coming through all night. The hotel itself was perfectly... More

Whilst on a cycling holiday I stayed at the holiday inn, I asked if they could wash my cycling kit, yes was the reply but the cost would be $4.50 for my cycling shorts - absolute disgrace. They also wanted the same price for washing a pair of shorts.
