I'm in Panama for 2 weeks out of the month for work and the company I work with has a contracted rate with Le Meridien, just around the corner from the Waldorf, so that's where I usually stay. My spouse wanted to visit Panama, so he came in and we stayed 3 nights in Casco Viejo, 2 nights on Contadora Island and the last night before his flight home at the Waldorf. Given the choice, I would pick the Waldorf over Le Meridien any day.
Location is nearly identical but the rooms are massive and the decor and staff just seem to have that little something extra. Everything, from check-in to breakfast, was just a little more special than you find in other places. Granted, I have not stayed at any other Waldorf Astoria, but if this property is any indication of the brand standard, I will seek it out in the future. The beds are heavenly as well. If you need a 4 or 5 star hotel, skip Trump and Starwood and stay here. You'll be glad you did.
