The Panama Marriott is centrally located and a convenient location for getting around parts of the city (within reason given Panama City's horrendous traffic). The vast majority of taxi drivers know the hotel, although we found most Panamanians, at least those that drive taxis, drop the 't' in Marriott, so it sounds more like Marrio. It threw us off a few times, until we finally caught on. The hotel is in a safe area that is near the heart of the commercial center and is safe to walk around at all hours.
The room itself was very large, clean and well appointed. The bathroom in our room didn't have a tub but a humongous shower stall that even had a sitting area. The lounge was very nice, spacious and even had a few booths with personal tvs. Breakfast served in the lounge was just ok, but the evening options were much better. The lounge was open till midnight. The gym is very large, spread out over two levels and included a sauna, steam room, outdoor pool and whirlpool. The pool closed at 11pm but access to the gym was 24 hours.
The hotel staff was efficient and generally knew what they were doing. If you don't want to take the hotel transport service (up to triple the price of a regular taxi), ask the bellman to hail a taxi for you off the street. For those driving, the hotel provides free valet parking.
