My husband and I stayed 5 days, 4 nights at the Waldorf Astoria Panama City and we were treated like ROYALTY from the moment we entered the building. We were pleasantly greated by Eduardo and Tony (valet) outside with a handshake and a warm smile. We had to wait a little bit for our room, but it was well worth it! Candy (concierge) personally escorted us to our upgraded condo on the 27th floor and we were amazed. The room was huge and had a full kitchen and living/dining room and large open shower. On the first night we received a plate of desserts, the next night an unexpected bottle of Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, and on our anniversary another bottle of champs and strawberries + after dinner we came home to rose petals all over the bedroom! This was by far the best experience service-wise that I have ever received in a hotel and I travel WEEKLY for work and a few times a year personally. Lille A. (concierge) was amazing. We corresonded a few weeks prior to the trip and when I arrived she was like an old friend. I attribute all of the sweet unexpected surprised to her and am so thankful that she went above and beyond to make sure our anniversary celebration was top notch. She offered many suggestions on restaurants and activities and we were well taken care of every time she was on duty. The Waldorf has a house car which we didn't find out about until the 2nd or 3rd day of our trip but this was very nice touch. Niko and Roberto were our drivers during the stay and they both took good care of us. The offered their personal cell numbers for us to call when we were ready to be picked up. Niko offered a lot of recommendations for food as he is a trained culinary expert and we took his personal recommendation of Tre Scalina (Italian) for our anniversary dinner. Maria (housekeeping) was also a little gem as she greeted us each night for our turndown service in the room. There were countless others with smiling faces and an eager willingness to helps us over the course of our vacation and I am so grateful! The only negatives (and negative is too strong of a word) of trip were that we didn't always get washcloths for our baths, the lounges/restuarants & pool were relatively empty during the stay so there wasn't an active vibe even though the hotel is beautifully designed, and we had a washer/dryer in our room but the staff wasn't sure how to operate (we eventually figured out it with Tony's help) and we wasted some time waiting on them. The hotel's location is steps away from nightlife, restuarants, and the bay. I would definitely stay here if I'm in Panama again. Thanks Lille and team! We had a blast and will never forget your hospitality.
