My husband and I were looking for a reasonable priced hotel in downtown Seattle and we found it at the Panama Hotel. We were very interested in the history of the hotel and it felt like we were sleeping over at our grandparents with the way the rooms were furnished. The fact that there was no air conditioning and no... More

I wanted a reasonably priced hotel close by both Safeco Field and the waterfront and this place fit the bill. My main criteria for a hotel is that it lets me sleep and this place fit the bill. Some really important caveats - it's a historic hotel and did have a good "authentic" feel. Important caveats to keep in mind:... More

We found the Panama online and I checked out the pictures. Having been in Seattle in the past I had an "idea" where I was going to be staying, but was happy to learn I was incorrect. The location was better, and safer than I expected for a downtown location. The website, though lacking explanation, conveys the "what to expect"... More

If you are traveling in a group of two, better buy 2 separate rooms because the double bed is pretty small for two. Hotel is old, but with this nice old atmosphere. It is clean, toilets and shower are clean as well. Breakfast is usualy included what is a really good deal. Location is close to the downtown and you... More

You'll enjoy your stay at the Panama Hotel a lot more if you go into the experience with appropriate expectations. This is not the Hyatt or even a Motel 6. This is a 1910's hotel geared toward the Japanese working man in America that somehow exists in the 2010's. It has almost none of the modern conveniences you might expect... More

Lots of drug crime and noise. Other guests can see into your room. No locks on the windows. Your room key and creditcard information are kept in an unlocked desk in public common room that is largely unstaffed. Each floor of the building shares a toilet with no lock. I've stayed at historic hotels before and know what to expect,... More

If you require pomp and circumstance and are a high maintenance individual this might not be for you. But if you are looking for an amazing historical experience The Panama Hotel is the place. The owner is on site and works hard in making sure that The Panama is kept alive. A true treasure. The best deal in Seattle.

We stayed in this historic charmer for one night, it was a great price and close to the King Street station. My teenage girls were a little taken a back at first, with shared bathrooms and shower, but they quickly warmed to the charm of it all. The staff was so helpful and welcoming, the rooms are very clean, the... More

Though it doesn't look like much from outside and you have to climb one darn impressive staircase to get to the lobby, this hotel is awesome! We really stayed in May 2015, but the time thingy wouldn't go back that far. Here's what I gave it on a different 'site at the time: This hotel is ADORABLE, affordable, clean, and... More
