“Classy operation!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

The last two nights of our Panama stay were in one of the large rooms at the Marriott. It was quiet, the bed was very comfortable and all the staff made us feel welcome. The coffee deli was perfect for for a quick meal. Good restaurants close by....great last minute price.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

This hotel was GREAT!! my boyfriend and i went for new year's eve for 1 night (dec 31rst - jan 1rst)... the hotel is very nice and fancy, but if u're coming to have indoor fun, not recomended. The hotel is fully equipped for a business travel, it has a casino next door but its not that great.

THE ROOMS!! Wow they are really nice and big, even though u take the standard one. The rooms were just PERFECT.

THE SERVICE!! Well they were all nice ladies, the girl that checked us in was super nice and the girl who answered the phone every time we called as well

THE GYM!! Very complete and confortable the only thing is that they should put signs to it because its very hidden. Its right next to the pool, the pool its not that big but its clean and nice.

I didnt rate it "Excellent", because we had to check out at 5am and there was nobody to check us out. We called several times but nobody would answer us, no bell boys or security guards or front desk recepcionist or anything. There was nobody since 3am in the lobby.

EVERYTHING ELSE WAS GREAT!

A great experience from the moment I checked in! The staff is pleasant, warm, and cooperative. The room was large and included a seating area, clean and safe. I ate at the coffee shop which was delicious. I would definitely book here again.

Stayed here for 4 nights with my 84 year old Mother in November, 2013. Very nice hotel in a safe area of downtown Panama City. Service was good and location is great! As a Platinum Elite member, access to the Executive lounge is a real plus with a good breakfast and evening snacks. Was undergoing a renovation to the lobby and restaurant area but was not a problem.

You know you're at a good hotel when you see the major airline pilots and flight attendants stay there. The hotel does a good job of keeping the place safe and clean, they closely monitor who goes in/out. The hotel is connected to a casino on the corner, you can get to it without having to go to the street. There's also an excellent sports bar on the first floor where you can catch the latest games on several large screen TV's. The rooms are very clean, ample and comfortable, no noise, excellent Internet connectivity. Across the street there are a couple of good restaurants (one is middle eastern) and you can safely walk to and from these without problem. Note that there is a lot of construction going on the adjacent streets, it would be wise to take a taxi even if you're going close since there are no sidewalks, and when it rains there's a lot of mud (see picture). If you're going to a meeting in your business suit it will get all wet and dirty. The breakfast is excellent, well staffed and a lot of choices, there's also a coffee shop where you can get drinks and sandwiches.

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.

The Marriott Panama is a good hotel in a very good central location in Panama City, in walking distance to everything. Becareful when choosing a Marriott hotel in Panama as they are several to choose from in the Marriott chain .... and when catching a taxi back to your hotel in Panama make sure you give exact instructions as to which one!!

The hotel is always quite busy with business people and tourists but it copes with the crowds well. The rooms, i had an executive room on the 10th floor for all my 3 stays there, are very comfy and spacious with nice marble bathrooms, a fridge and coffee maker.

The executive lounge serves a good buffet breakfast both hot and cold selections but be warned it gets bust at the weekends with hotel leisure deals. Throughout the day coffee, soft drinks and cookies are available. In the evenings a good hot and cold buffet is served between 6 and 9pm, changing the selection nightly. Wine and beer is available but at a charge.

The hotel is attached to a Casino but the noise does not affect the hotel and their is a separate entrance. There is a very good gym and a nice pool, however the pool being in an inner courtyard doesn't get much sun if you want to sunbathe. But it does have a hot tub which is lovely to sit in and relax in the evenings.

The front desk staff, the room servicing staff, the gym/pool staff and the executive lounge staff were all really helpful and make this a very pleasant hotel to stay in.

Across the road from the hotel is a good Lebanese restaurant and their are a few other places to eat really close by, plus Rey supermarket less than 5 minutes walk away. You can walk to Via España (the main drag) 2 minutes away and the Cinta Costera (the coastal promenade) 5 minutes away.

All in all a good place to stay in Panama City.

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the back of the hotel as rooms at the front can be noisy with street noise , e...
