“Good Stay Would Stay Again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2007

The Marriott Hotel gave me a wonderful stay. The staff at the front desk and other members of the hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Some marriott hotel US staff could take a few lessons from this hotel. The beds have been upgraded and are very comfortable. My room was roomy and had a sofa. I think this would be a good Business hotel also.. The hotel is in a safe area with resturants within walking distant. There is even one across the street.
To get to the hotel requires a taxi from the hotel. There are no hotel shuttles buses. The taxi is about $25.00 per ride although I learned that you can "share" a ride up to 3 people and the the cost is $10.00 per person. (if you are traveling alone). The taxi driver will ask if you want to take the toll or go through the neighborhood, if you take the toll you pay or atleast that is it what my rider said. Taking the toll is a better drive on the highway. I took the hotel car back to the airport and that was $34.50 toll included. There are many taxis waiting out front. You can arrange a tour from the hotel and if you fly Continental Airlines there is an Airline Desk in the hotel.There is a good hotel resturant and a little sweet shop. Spa and gym although I did not try either. Would stay here again

Stayed April 2007

Spent a few nights at the Marriott and had a great experience. The hotel is in a good safe location with good local restaurants within walking distance. Like others have said, taxis available in the front of the hotel, but walk down a side street and the fee will be alot cheaper, we spoke with a taxi driver that took us to the canal and toured us around the city for over 3 hours and it cost us 20US. It did help that my husband can speak Spanish. We arranged for the same driver to take us to the airport the morning we left. The hotel itself is great, nice quiet pool, great gym and friendly, bi-lingual staff. There is a Champions (sports bar) in the lobby where we watched some European soccer and had some good local beer. Rooms are nicely done and have the new Marriott bedding, would also recommend asking for a high floor due to street noise. Look forward to coming back to Panama City and once again staying at this hotel.....almost forgot the cafe/pastry shop in the lobby....decadent desserts and great strong coffee.............!

  • Liked — Location and friendly efficient staff
  • Disliked — Occasional street noise
  • Stayed March 2007, traveled as a couple
