This hotel is built almost entirely in solid sheets of marble. We had a room on the 7th floor that was HUGE! The corridors are enormous with a lovely breeze like a wind tunnel on your way to the rooms. There are sitting areas with leather furniture at each elevator station and in the giant open air area just before the lobby. Marble floors, shower and walls. A mini-fridge, 2 double beds that were fairly comfy, desk and table with chairs. It was clean but this is an older hotel and is beginning to show it's age however it is really quite stunning. Great location with the largest mola store in Panama right across the drive (super selection and prices). An easy walk to the huge shopping district. Nice city views. There was a little noise from the World Congress Salsa dancing party but hey, it's Salsa and we were in Panama! And the return of the Casino players at 4am was lively but hey! It's Panama!
Service was Panamanian i.e. a little surly. This is typical so don't take it personally. Nice buffet breakfast with ample selections and good coffee. We had dinner outdoors by the pool; sea bass that was quite good and a fruit plate with breads we enjoyed. Our first several wine choices were not available but there were alternates.
We liked the hotel and would stay here again.
