I stayed 1 night to catch a flight out. Hotel is very clean. The staff during check in was friendly and professional. I ate next door at TGI Fridays (recommended by hotel staff).The service was very, very poor though the food was OK. The hotel has a great view of the canal and the bridge of the Americas.

Hotel was decent for the money. Breakfast was acceptable but the hotel needs repairs and sprucing up badly. Tiles were broken and all around the pool area, flooring, roof. Paint was need badly in all areas outside. We had a good room but again the tub area needed work on tiles caulking, but clean and might return if I ever go back to Panama City. The big think that bothered me was not at the hotel but the outside pedestrian road along the canal entrance. I was a little appalled at the trash in this area of the marina next door. Shame on the Panamanian people for trashing such a nice place. Many locals hang out there at night and throw everything all over the ground. It kinda of changed my attitude of the place. No police enforcing???

Room Tip: I think you should pay extra for the canal view.

We stayed one week at this hotel. We got a confortable room with a fantastic view of the canal and the bridge Las Americas. Wifi is accessible everywhere at the hotel, free and fast.

This location is perfect to go to the Miraflores locks, to take cruises to the Islands or to the canal. An ideal place also if you like to walk since it is the starting point of the Amador Causeway. You can walk along the canal watching the impressive ships passing by. You have also many alternatives for good restaurants nearby.

Since we booked a long time in advance, we got an excellent room rate.

We spend 4 nights at the hotel and really enjoyed our stay. The breakfast buffet was splendid, as noted by other reviewers and as we had booked a room with bay view, it was amazing to watch the ships entering and leaving the Panama Canal so close. We haven't stayed in a Panama City hotel, but can't think of a better and more quiet hotel than this.

Room Tip: Book a room with Bay view and on the 4th floor preferably for a amazing view to ships entering and l...

The rooms are similar to any american chain (even has a micro wave) - swimming pool is large and over looks the canal entrance.
The service at the reception was pretty poor , no smile, did not make us feel as customers - more like cattle.

The hotel is practical but offers really no charm. I would recommend it as a hotel for a one night on the way in or out of panama city. IF you are looking for a hotel where u feel in panama... then you should choose another one

We checked in around 12:45 AM after driving in a rental car from Tocumen Airport....a great place to stay for the night before traveling on to the beaches/mountains of Panama. The breakfast was amazing & try their Panamanian coffee...outstanding! The gentleman who checked us in (in the wee hours after midnight) spoke English & was as nice & professional as could be. In fact, the entire staff was amazing. Of course the views from the canal side look like a picture postcard & navigating out of there to get to the Pan-American Bridge took less than 5 minutes. I asked a local cab driver to verify my navigational skills & it's a good thing I did because the signs are small, hidden & few & far between. WE got a wonderful rate by going directly to the Hotel web site which was MUCH less $$$ than those hotel web sites !

Room Tip: Ask for a room from at least the 3rd floor (hotel is 5 floors high) facing the canal/bridge.
