The Panama Hotel is a heritage hotel that has been lovingly refurbished. It's in Seattle's Chinatown/International District, only a 10-minute walk from the station, stadium, close to historic Pioneer Square and well served by public transit. The neighbourhood once was shabby, but is definitely undergoing a renaissance and the Panama is helping set the trend. The coffee shop at the hotel has a relaxing and very pleasant ambiance. The International District has plenty of good restaurants within a block or two of the hotel.
I was not expecting a luxury hotel, but can understand that someone who does want that sort of place could be disappointed. There is no elevator and bath and toilets are down the hall, but many travellers are content with that sort of situation. If you are one of them, definitely consider staying at the Panama. If you're looking for something else, look elsewhere.
Everything about the hotel was spotlessly clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. I will definitely stay there again and will recommend it to my friends who area looking for an inexpensive, heritage hotel without pretensions or frills, but with plenty of good character.
