Loved It and We'd Recommend!

Pros: Cleanliness, friendly staff, great food.
Cons: There's construction outside, but that is beyond the hotel's control.
Location: City center of Panama City, many restaurants, churches and other sites very nearby.
We loved our experience at the Double Tree in Panama City. We upgraded for an affordable rate, which included a deluxe room, buffet breakfast for two each day of our stay, and wi-fi/internet access each day. The hotel was clean, safe and had a wonderful staff. There were many restaurants and sites within walking distance. They also have a tour company in the lobby that can help you arrange anything that you want to do. We recommend this hotel.

Location is good-near Metro and many restaurants.

Pros: The location. Sights are a bit remote; requires planning & money! You either hire a driver or take taxis.
Cons: Staff training - maybe a little English!
Location: Metro is new, beautiful-easy access to Old City,Albrook terminal.Bus to Panama Canal.Panama Railroad ride is worth it. Hiring a driver $$$$, taxis $$$
Communications are lost in this hotel. The staff does not make much of an effort to understand English or to help. The simplest question, where can we find a food store, is met with complicated answers -- futile. Ask for towels -- futile; went down to café to order a salad & glass of wine; they insisted on delivering to room. After 45 minutes, went back down -- they had the room number completely wrong! The front desk/restaurant could not break down a $50.00 bill - yet they use U.S. dollars! For a Hilton affiliate, we thought a more informed, friendly, English-understanding person would be at the hotel.

Breakfast not included this time

Pros: Clean. Nice bed. Ok location
Cons: Fan for AC seemed unadjustable.Wanted white noise to kill the sound of slamming doors. Better response to our concerns from desk staff regarding breky
Location: This is just a pit stop for us. Really haven't spent much time looking around. Most things seem to be a taxi ride although it is close to transit
We have stayed at this hotel 3 times and have been happy with it overall. Bathrooms a bit tired looking. This time, booking through Tavelocity, we found that breakfast was not included. The price was similar to other stays we have had here, but this time, breakfast cost us another $32.00 USD plus tip. That and there was some kind of renos going on next door to our room??? I guess their bacon and eggs meant more to them than us being loyal customers. It's OK, there are plenty of hotels in Panama City

Panama Business Trip

Pros: The bed was comfortable
Cons: Service. Employment knowledge. Competency of staff
Location: The Marriott
They run this hotel like a hostel. We had 7 rooms booked based on a business trip. The hotel staff is the most incompetent I have ever experienced. I requested water and towels on 3 separate occasions and did not receive them until I had to go downstairs and yell at one of the managers. The breakfast was terrible. So terrible that my colleague and I had to walk down to The Marriott to eat a decent meal. Do yourself a favor, there is a Marriott one block down, stay there.

Small hotel

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet, staff was vert friendly, the luxury mall is very close
Cons: no shuttles to anywhere
The hotel is small and there are no free shuttles. If you don't rent a car you have to deal with the taxi and get a price before you get in.
