The Westin in Costa del Este is recently built, modern, and western style hotel in a suburb of Panama City. Its got everything you love about Starwood hotels like the Heavenly bed.
Wifi in the rooms was extra at about $15 per day or you could pay for 3 or 5 days. Wifi in the hotel public spaces was free.
Parking was strictly valet.
Food-- There are restaurants walking distance from the hotel. The hotel restaurant is very pricy. If you have an hour for lunch, they have a buffet lunch for about $20. If you've got time to spare, you can also order a la carte.
They have a cafe/deli. The sandwiches, soup, and coffee were delicious with friendly service. The owner/manager spoke English.
Room service was only satisfactory. They brought my order at the time that they promised which was usually about 30 minutes. However, even though we ordered the same items repeatedly, what we actually received was different. For example, we ordered mini-hot dogs. Sometimes, they were not available. One time, we received actual mini hot-dogs, but a second time, they were full sized hot dogs with lettuce, too. In the end, the food arrived, it was hot, and we ate it.
Morning coffee: you could brew your own coffee in room. They provided coffee and water everyday. You could also go to their cafe which is street side.
We did not use the pool.
We did use the business center. It was nicely done as expected. However, their computers were not hooked into their printer. If a guest wanted to print, they would have to send the file by e-mail to the attendant who would then print the file.

There are only pros for this hotel. Everything one would want in a hotel can be found I the Westin hotel, Panama City. The only slight minus is the location - far from the icily cente and one has to catch taxis all the time. But apart from this little detail the hotel, staff, room, service was immaculate!

Room Tip: High floor with a good view of the skyline.

Westin Panama is a fashionable hotel in costa del Este Panama near to business offices what allow you avoid traffic jam in the morning and in the afternoon. Rooms are really confortables and with a beautiful decoration.
Room service all night and excellent facilities to take conferences and work late night from there.
Internet access is charged separately what is not nice, but good signal in the room to connect into system and into heavy webpages.
People working there are amazing.

Room Tip: I have tried different rooms and the experiences is always good.

The Westin at Costa del Este was excellent. We checked into a beautiful room and the service was terrific. Almost all the hotel staff are bilingual and very helpful. The hotel arranged for a car to take us to the Panama Canal - they got us a very informative, bilingual driver who stayed with us throughout the entire visit to the canal - perfect. I was assisted in the business center by their very accommodating staff as well. On the day we left, we had arranged through the hotel for a taxi to the airport on an early departure in the morning - all went without a hitch. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I will definitely return if the need ever arises.

The hotels is excellent and it is located in a very nice place. Food was unbelievable. Despite of how rude and unpleasant most Panamanians are, all employees in the hotel were very attentive and nice. Thanks to Copa airlines for paying for the hotel. An excellent airline.
