Would be helpful if there were a complementary airport shuttle.

Breakfast buffet was excellent.

Room Tip: We were initially put in a room accross from MetroMall. We freshened up and left for dinner. When we returned, the mall was hosting a celebration in the parking lot with live DJ, live band and lots of noise. Even though we had used the room, the staff moved us to a new room on the back side of the hotel without any hesitation. No noise at all. We were most appreciative.

Dear CH
We appreciate your comment, and we are glad that you enjoy our breakfast buffet, unfortunately due to some airport restrictions we can’t have shuttle to the airport. Hope I can help you on your next visit

The Courtyard is a new hotel that's quite nicely appointed. We stayed there one night before an early-morning flight from Tocumen, and the location of the Courtyard is good in terms of its proximity to the airport. However, it was a bit of a challenge to get to the hotel in our rental car coming in from the western part of the city. Once we did find our way, we had no desire to leave the room, since the only thing within walking distance is an enormous crowded shopping mall (not our preferred way to spend vacation time in a foreign country, walking around a mall).

The hotel was clean, the room was comfy, the bathroom fine, the business center useful (we printed our boarding passes the night before our flight), and the hotel restaurant wasn't bad at all -- not cheap, but certainly more interesting than eating at Subway or Bennigan's at MetroMall. Would we stay there again? Only if we needed to spend a night close to the airport. Otherwise you're too far from anything of interest to tourists for this hotel to be convenient.

Hello Dyova

Thank you for your comment, it is nice to hear that you were comfy on your room, and enjoy all our facilities, unfortunately local signalizations are not the best, but it is a good suggestion to see what we can do to improve our local authorities
Hope I can help you on your next visit

I wish I stayed longer. The service at this hotel is amazing. My bf and I stayed at this hotel for 2 days and I wish we stayed longer. The hotel is located right next to Metromall and this for me is enough to love any hotel. However the receptionists were extremely helpful, the room was big and modern-we travel alot so a comfortable clean room is at the top of our list of must haves. The gym was open at 6am and equipped with flat screen tvs and a decent supply of equipment. I was grateful for the disinfectant and cloths for wiping off machines- an oversight by some other hotel gyms. Breakfast was included in the rate- not spectacular but very sufficient. If I ever come back to Panama (hopefully soon) I will stay here. Btw- the airport is about 15 minutes away and offers a free shuttle to Metromall. I tried to skimp on taxi fare but the shuttle service closed off by the time I arrived, lol

A few months ago and when the hotel had just opened, I had the opportunity of staying there for 1 nite after a long business trip to Panama, I had not used my CC at all during my trip and had used all of my cash. When I was driving back from David and I needed gas I discovered that all of my CC inc my ATM had been blocked as the banks suspected fraudulent the charges I was attempting to make were fraudulent , I could not believe this was happening to me as I had notified my banks of my trip. I inmediately tried contact my banks but It was a weekend so the banks were not being very helpful.
I finally arrived at the Marriot and explained my problem to Mr Carlos Diago the manager, he stated , no problem "lets get you registered" .
I had called my fiance and asked her for her CC # so that I could pay for the room. Mr Diago was very helpful and understanding. After traveling for 2 weeks and walking all over Panama I needed a good rest as I was catching a flight back next morning.

The hotel was a breath of fresh air!! It felt like home..!!!! CLEAN, quiet, nice furnishings, nice linens and my bed was awesome ....

So convinient to the airport and last minute shopping.

My stay was brief and yet refreshing... I am very thankful to Mr Diago and his staff for making my short stay pleasurable. I will definetely stay there every time I go to Panama.

After much research I chose this hotel because it was a 15 minute drive to the airport. We got in late and did not want to drive far. The hotel is newer the rooms are a nice size and modern. The breakfast is nothing over the top, but they have plenty of choices. Front desk was very helpful in helping me contact Avis about out rental car. Continued to call until problem was resolved. Overall it was the perfect choice if you need to stay near the airport and stay away from the city and it's traffic.
