The location of Le Meridien appealed to us as it is an upscale property adjacent to Panama City's Restaurant Row Uruguay Street. Our experience with this hotel began on arrival in the airport. The concierge desk neglected to send a car to meet our arrival, after being given all pertinent information a few hours before. Requisite apologies were forthcoming as well as a room upgrade. Nonetheless, problems with the concierge desk persisted throughout our four night stay. While pleasant and well meaning, this young and clearly untrained concierge staff could not follow through with the simplest service requests. In fact, a car was not ordered per our request for our canal transit tour, which is why we came to Panama in the first place. This is a shame as the hotel itself is quite nice. The room was spacious with a minimalist modern decor. The dining room and bar were fine with an accommodating wait staff. I even found someone who could make a dry Cosmopolitan. The hotel's concierge service lapses, however, are sufficient reason to consider other alternatives should we return to Panama.
