“Great and confortable place”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

It is an excellent hotel, service is really high and personalized quality, views from rooms to the ocean are FAB. People takes care of you nicely. The bar provides a range of drinks you choose. Restaurant has great food, it is a hotel worth to be at.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view to the ocean.

I stayed at the Le Meridien for a two day business trip to Panama City. The hotel almost feels more like a W with the trendy lounge downstairs and stunning light features in the lobby. The location is right in the center of the city with easy access to pretty much everything. The view from my 4th floor suite was really fabulous - it overlooked the ocean and most of the surrounding city. Same goes for the view from the workout facility.
If you get upgraded to a suite, you won't be disappointed. The rooms are HUGE. Even the bathroom is enormous with a separate soaking tub and rain shower.
If I were to give one downfall, it would be the city noise - which really can't be helped. I turned on my white noise app on my iphone and easily drowned it out.
I definitely recommend this hotel for your next trip to Panama City!

Room Tip: Ask to be upgraded to a Gold Suite.

We were given a base room and after asking, were moved to a nicer room with an upgraded view (definitely worth asking for a better view!)
Pool was small.
Bar downstairs had great drinks and food.
Biggest complaint is that we booked club level and the club was closed as it was a weekend night... they need to not offer it as a booking option if it is closed!
Staff was not overly friendly except for the bartender (I forget her name, but she made us a great Panamian Rum & coke!)

It is not a huge Hotel. All the rooms have a beautiful view to the bay. Rates include very good breakfast. Staff is very kindly. Perfect for business traveler. Internet in the rooms is included in the rate. Close to Banks and Malls.

Outstanding Platinum recognition, upgraded room.
We stayed at this hotel 5 months ago and the bell boy (Ronaldo) remembered us and happily welcomed us back.
Good buffet breakfast.
You can walk to a shopping with Cinemas.

This hotel is perfectly located for the business traveler. The hotel facilities are top notch and as a Starwood Platinum I was upgraded to a beautiful one bedroom suite. The bathroom was huge with separate rain forest shower and large jet tub with marble floor throughout. The internet was fast and the room was well appointed and designed for work. I had a great view of the bay. I highly recommend this fine hotel.

I loved this hotel. So much that when we added an extra day on the end of our travels we immediately booked another room here instead of trying anything different. From the second you walk through the doors you are transported into a modern luxiourous setting. The lobby is gorgeous and pristine. The front desk staff were so kind and friendly and happy to have us there. The concierge was super helpful in planning out ways to get around safely and cheaply. They were honest which was very much appreciated. Now the room. OMG. One of the best rooms I have ever stayed in and I am a platinum starwood preferred guest. We were upgraded to a 2 room suite with massive floor to ceiling windows looking out to the coastline and skyline. AMAZING. And the decor of the rooms were just stunning. Marble and dramatic lighting. Really a paradise. And right in the middle of the old city and newer things such as the Hard Rock. We loved our stay and cannot wait to go back.

Oh - my fiance hurt himself (minor cut) walking back to the hotel the last night and the front desk staff couldnt do enough to make sure he was ok. It was amazing.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the water (street facing). It is a bit louder but worth it.
