“Excellent hotel and location”
Reviewed 19 December 2013 via mobile

We stayed here two nights and had a wonderful stay and experience. I wish we had a better view but spent very little time in the hotel. The food was good and nice to see the variety of food on the menu.

Just returned from a 5 day stay in Panama City. This Marriott Hotel was excellent! The rooms were recently all remodeled, with top notch accommodations. The staff was so warm and friendly, always acting professional and ready to assist with any of our needs. This location is great - right in the middle of town, close to the coastal highway, shopping, sightseeing, great restaurants. We had access to the Executive Lounge on the 14th Floor, and this was a great way to start our mornings, with delicious breakfast choices, have coffee mid-day, and a snack during the late afternoon. The Sports Bar was also a great place to stop in for a drink and a nice appetizer, with awesome staff.

Whatever you do, we would advise renting a taxi from the hotel to go places. Driving is so crazy and hectic, even though we had rented a car, we never used it. The hotel has special taxis assigned to them, and I took a tour to the old town with a knowledgeable guide, Richard/Ricardo, who was so informative and patient with me. The hotel porters, especially Carlos Alberto, went out of their way to give us helpful hints when we had questions. The ladies at the Concierge desk also provided outstanding customer service. Thanks to all for making this such a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Try to choose a room on one of the higher floors since the traffic is so noisy. Also, take advantag...

We ended our wonderful Lindblad cruise from Costa Rica-Panama here. The room was luxurious, the hotel decor very pleasant - despite the rather gruesome holiday decorations - and the breakfast in the Sports Bar was absolutely sumptuous. Loved it!

I love Marriott's hotel. I had been to two different Marriott hotel in Panama and they were very good but this one was the best.. Excellent customer service. Very helpful and kind.. Excellent location you are able to walk to Ave. Espana and calle 50 in less than 5 minutes avoiding the hectic Panama traffice.. Breakfast is excellently served at Champion's bar.. Rooms are elegant and very confortable.. Excellent stay.

Room Tip: rooms on the north side are quieter

I am a Marriott fan. Panama City Marriott is everything you expect of a Marriott and more. The staff is professional and Central American personable. The staff is quick to smile and make you feel at home. The hotel is ideally situated for downtown business, but be forewarned-- traffic in Panama City is best described as a parking lot, and it gets worse when raining. There is very reasonably priced same day service laundry service half a block away. Within walking distance are restaurants and several nightclubs. The hotel's coffee shop is very nice. Breakfast is varied, plentiful, and includes cooked to order eggs and excellent omelets. I've written a separate review for the Champion's Bar.

Room Tip: Unless you are a night owl avoid the rooms above the Casino. Saturday nights can get loud. The hig...

A great place if you're down on business. Ample room size, a decent exec. lounge and super-friendly staff.
I hate that "Champion's Bar" franchise they've got going on: tacky Americana, but they made a mean Mojito.
Coffee bar on the ground floor has all you'll need, a decent business/meeting area and, should you feel like losing a few bucks, an in-hotel passageway to the Casino.
Looking for a nightcap and a giggle outside, look no further than Beirut Restaurant with a sheesha up the street or Habaneros Bar opposite.
Two thumbs up.

i stayed at the Marriott Panama November 18-19. hotel, bedding, water pressure in the shower were all first rate. i was fortunate to have access to the concierge lounge and it too was terrific. The 5-10 pm service was continually refreshed and the breakfast was ok as well with plenty of fresh fruit. by accident i torn a hole in my pants and the front desk handled it within a few hours and all for $5.00 that was a wow moment.

absolutely will return when back in Panama.

PS having the casino right next door is an added bonus even if you only want to dabble for 30 minutes
