“Quality everywhere”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Stayed 3 nights at the Marriott Panama and everything was exceptional. The staff are bilingual, which makes it easy to practice your Spanish. Front desk personnel, concierge, bell station, restaurant, housekeeping - we received excellent service everywhere. The hotel has a good location, within easy walking distance to restaurants and stores. Would absolutely stay there again.

The service was very good. I arrived from the airport at 7:00 am and I have asked for an early check-in. It was great to get into the room early in the morning after a 7 hours trip. The reservation using their website was also very easy and efficient.

I came to this hotel on a business trip in November 2011. It was a very good experience. Clean, comfortable room, great staff, clean common areas, local beers only $3 at the sports bar... . I would not hesitate to stay here again.

My room on a high floor was spotless, with a great bed and a nice city view. All the staff I encountered were very pleasant and helpful. The breakfasts were great. Not the continental junk. This was a nice high quality buffet, they even had the egg and omelet guy.

Room Tip: High rooms let you see the amazing Panama City skyline, and you dont hear the street noise.

The Panama Marriott Hotel nicely appointed, rooms are what you expect from a first class hotel, service excellent; we were there while their pool area is being rennovated and the rates are great for this quality hotel...Superb value; excellent restaurants within easy walk or an inexpensive cab ride. Executive lounge for frequent travellers is excellent, and OPEN 7 days a week, unlike many Marriott hotels in the states where they shut down the lounge for the weekend. Staff is friendly and excellent.

Upon my arrival I was greeted by Roberto (bell staff)... I was attended by Grethel from front desk... the service in the guest area here is flawless. Check-in was fast, I didn't even have to show any papers or print-outs... If I was there longer than 5 minutes it's probably because I had more questions about the surrounding area. I was in RM 1718... It was very nice! The room was spacious and comfortable and I had a very nice view of the Panama City skyline (almost like King of New York) Housekeeping staff was on point as well. Bathrooms are beautiful and spacious as well. Closet space galore!! The pool was CLOSED!!! (Bad job Panama Marriot). The Health Centre is top-of-the-line!! They have treadmills, benches, dumbbells--everything you would find in a fully equipped gym. Casino area is cool... they have a lot of big screens on the second level to watch any sport you want.

Okay... now the downside

The hotel menu (as usual) is way too pricey for what you get. $17 for cornflakes and fruit?! Puh-leeeeze! Go to Costa Azul right across the street, you can get hot sandwiches, chopped fruit, juice, coffee etc. I had a pretty big breakfast and spent like $10. Hotel staff will recommend hotel product, as they are trained to, but I wasn't having it-- I know better. DO NOT use the Nissan Altima cabs outside of the hotel!!! You will get ripped off!! Just walk a half a block in any direction and go YELLOW CAB always!!! Waaaaaaay cheaper!!! Average fare is $2 to $5. If you can befriend a cab driver (as I did)... he can take you to see Panama Canal, Casco Viejo and more!! Hotel tour rates are ridiculous (Cheapest is $100) There are great restaurants nearby (Tre Scallini, Beirut). BE CAREFUL WALKING!!! SIDE WALKS ARE IN BAD SHAPE!!! There was an open sewer on the corner near the hotel. I told the police/soldier in front of the hotel, he could've cared less... typical. At night time, there is a bar in from of the hotel (Habana's Cigars) This is a spot for escort girls... so if you get a lot of smiles, don't be fooled-- they are working girls. That said, it's nice to hang out for a minute before going on to the next spot.

In summary, this is a very nice hotel, I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

As with all things foreign travel, do your research FIRST and try not to get conned :)

Panama is a great place and so is this hotel.

Room Tip: The higher the room, the better.

We wanted a place to relax after our 10 day trip all over Panama and this hotel was perfect.
The rooms were spacious, the bed was comfortable, it was very quiet, it was very clean, the staff spoke English, breakfast was included and was a delicious buffet, the concierge steered us to two great local restaurants, the elevators were fast and coordinated with no wait time, a nice sports bar for a quick lunch and it was a great location in a safe area either to walk to restaurants or take a short cab ride.

Other than the wifi ripoff, this place was perfect.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor with a view

I stayed here 3 nights on business. This is a large clean and well run hotel but is let down by a lack of character. Further, the neighborhood in which it is located features casinos and nightclubs and is probably not somewhere those new to town should stroll around in. The executive lounge is OK, breakfast selection is decent and it is well run. The gym is large, well equipped and is above average. My room was clean and spacious with an interesting view of the Panama city skyline but otherwise unremarkable. If I were to entertain colleagues or professional contacts here, I think I would wish for a more original lobby experience -it feels like a faded 70's queen. The staff were friendly, courteous and efficient and my check in and out experiences were flawless.
