Friends referred us to the Panama Hotel at the edge of a residential neighborhood in San Rafael. It is more like a bed and breakfast. Each room has a different theme and size. We stayed in the Safari Room. Totally charming and well appointed. Breakfast was included and was very good for a continental breakfast. The restaurant which is part of the hotel is excellent. It appears to a local hangout for dinner and lunch.Highly recommend the Panama Hotel which dates back to the 1920's. Look for an excuse to stay in San Rafael so that you can experience the Panama Hotel, which is about three blocks from the downtown area.
