Panama Marriott Hotel
Ranked #15 of 115 Hotels in Panama City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The Marriott Hotel in Panama City, Panama, is beautiful. Our stay was good but I was surprised at the extra charges on my bill. I made reservations for 3 in a double room with a AAA discount. I was pleased with the cost. However, after I registered, I was informed that the third person in the room would cost $20 per night. I thought is was unfair but didn't complain. Another charge that surprised me was $12.95 per day for WiFi. Most places offer this free. Also be careful about getting a taxi through the hotel. It will cost you more than if you hale one yourself. One nice feature was that the hotel held our luggage after check out because our flight was late in the evening. They even allowed us to use the spa for shower and freshening up that afternoon after check out.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask if there are any extra charges for the room. The hotel is 20 stories, the higher...

We stayed for 3 nights in December and one in January before catching our plane. At first we were concerned with the location but we became accustomed to the area and were quite pleased.

The hotel and rooms were very clean. The staff were very friendly, dedicated and caring. Service was excellent and the rooms (Executive room) were extremely large and well kept. Prices were quite reasonable.

There is a casino attached to the hotel but we didn't gamble. There was also exercise facilities as well as a quaint pool.

We would definitely return.

The room was huge and well decorated. We only stayed one night after an adventure cruise on a small ship which made it seem all that more luxurious. The price was reasonable and the room quite lovely. We appreciated the refrigerator with room for our own things, not just stuffed with items you don't dare move or you have bought them. As mentioned elsewhere, we flagged down our own yellow cab as it costs less that way. You just ask at the beginning how much they will be charging. It's around $5 to the old town.

This is a well located hotel for visiting Panama City.
Clean, large rooms and good breakfast buffet.
Good area to walk around with great local restaurants.
If you are going on tours of the Cannal, old town and casco viejo this makes a great base.
Close to Multiplaza, a newly built mall with a good variety of shops. For $12 in a local taxi you can go to Metro Mall, a massive mall close to the airport.

One of our favorite Marriott hotels.

Room Tip: high rooms are quieter when there are functions on in the hotel's ball rooms.

We stayed 3 nights here after a trip up the Panama Canel. It was very nice and clean,The rooms were large and the aircon worked properly. The restaurant and snack bars were excellent. There was al;so some very nice restaurants quite close and quite cheap compared to Australia. It was well located for day walking trips and thelocal tourist bus stopped just up the road. It had good internet and reasonably priced. There was several casinos and clubs in the area but no noise problems from them.

Great Marriott but in the center of Financial district! Booked 2 Executive rooms as we were travelling with our teenage kids! Had great adjoining/ connecting rooms.The executive room type allows you to use the club lounge...great continental breakfast & evening snacks. Unlimited soft drinks but have to pay for alcohol. Free internent use only if you have the excutive type room.
Great airport pick up and drop off arranged by the concierge of the hotel resonably priced (private mini van with driver for our family of 5...$65.00.) Extremely helpful with trips & tours!
Rooms spacious & clean!
Champions restaurant in hotel served average "American Sports Bar" Food!
We ate at the Marriott Cafe twice...that too was ok!
Ate at a Lebanese restaurant right opposite called Beruit..great food.
Not much to do around the hotel...located in financial area.Area is not the best around the hotel except for a few bars to walk at night!
Casino is attached to the hotel.
Great Gym!
No Beauty Salon.
Small sized pool on Mezzanine level.
Great courteous staff!
If on Business great hotel.
Not so if you are travelling with kids..Other Hotels very similiar but better located like Intercontinental, Hard Rock!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor room..Less traffic noise!

Very nice hotel, well kept, with very friendly staff, good service, nice bar, the rooms are very good, clean and big.
The price is OK, not the cheapest but not outrageous either.
The good and bad I found are related to location and surroundings.
It´s located in the financial district which is good if you are on business, but the traffic is terrible almost all day long, and empty cabs are scarce.
It´s close (like 5 blocks) to an area with lots of bars and nightclubs, which is good if you are planning to party all night with your buddies, but this also means the area is not the best; ugly as hell, dirty and completely deserted at night.
You can walk to the bars but those 5 blocks are completely empty at night, we walked the distance but if something would have happened there was no one around to get help or whatever.
I've been to this this hotel a couple of times on business and decided to take the family on vacations, not the best decisions; as I mentioned the hotel is very nice, but not really in the nicest neighborhood, so walking around, can be done but is not really nice and I wouldn't do it at night; so you'll have to use a car an get stuck in traffic. There are a lot of bars an strip clubs on the surroundings; there is a bar right across the main entrance of the hotel; at night it gets crowded with lots of girls of dubious reputation, that seems to be in a very good mood all the time, that can bring a lot of question from little kids, and several looks that could kill from your spouse.
So, if on business, very nice hotel, deal with the traffic; if with family and kids there are other hotels very similar but better located.
