“Excellent Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2011

This is the first time staying at the Panama Marriott Hotel, and I must say that the staff is amazing! They are very friendly, professional and will help you in any way they can.
The rooms are very nice, having all the needs you are looking for.
The restaurant has the best dessert ever! The chocolate wall is superb!
The staff from the bar are very slow, and like to hide a lot behind a wall between the bar and their kitchen, chatting and laughing with each other.
I will definitely stay again at the Marriott!

Room Tip: When you order room service, order from the Restaurant menu as the food from their bar Champions isn...

I checked in at 6am but wasn't told until I checked out that they would charge me an additional full day for checking in so early. I just took a shower and then went out again so if they had told me I wouldn't have checked in so early. Usually hotels if they charge will only charge half a day and always they tell you in advance you're going to have to pay extra. One of the days when I wanted to take my shower, there was no hot water and when I mentioned it to reception they were unconcerned saying only that sometimes those things happen in Panama. However, when one is paying 200 usd/night there should be hot water 24/7.

This is a very nice hotel. The rooms were large, well-appointed and very comfortable. We were travelling with young children and the staff were accommodating about our requests (e.g., adjoining rooms, portable crib). The children's meals on the take-out menu were good and reasonably priced. Room service was very fast and courteous. Hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. The only negative was that service in the sports bar was surprisingly slow, though the food was fine and the ceviche particularly good.

I have stayed numerous times at this property! This property is everything you would expect from a full service Marriott Hotel. The staff has always been professional, the food excellent, rooms large and clean and the location is close to the heart of Panama. The pool is closed until next April 2012 due to construction on an adjacent building, free transportation is offered to another hotel with pool services.

Marriott's are, almost by definition these days very good hotels. The Marriott Panama stands out for its great staff and an excellent kitchen. The rooms are HUGE, well lit (especially the bathroom -that you for the make up mirror!) and very clean. The staff is very good and every detail is taken care of. The only possible bad comment is that the traffic is so dense all day that getting in and out of the hotel by taxi takes some time. This is the case just about everywhere in the city, it certainy is not unique to this hotel.
Some recent maintanence in the bathroom could have been done a little better, but if bad caulking in a few areas is the only possible negative you can count on this as a great place to stay in Panama.

Room Tip: Due to the traffic you may want a room on a higher floor.

This was a good central hotel in Panama. I was here for a wedding so I got to see a lot of the hotel. There was a good pool and some good places to eat. I was in two rooms, one of which was the presedential suite and it was pretty crip. The room was big and very corporate/presidentialesque....etc... I like resort type hotels. This place is all business but it got the job done. If you are here on business, i would suggest it...

We arrived to Panama on a unplanned vacation and decided to stay in a familiar hotel. We have stay in Marriots around the world and the one in Panama is perfect. Located in the banking district of the city close to many restaurants and shoping centers.
The hotel staff has been magnificent, we cant wait to go and explore.
Right now doing research in things to do around the city...
