“American Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Visited this hotel over the memorial day weekend. This is a gem in the middle of the "Casco Viejo" in Panama. The room was big and looked right onto the square, it was very comfortable especially the dual shower that gushed water out of the showerhead as if you were taking a shower in a waterfall. We just had to step out of our room and the pool was right there, which made it very convenient, the pool is small but very nice. The service was excellent, from the reception desk to the room service staff we received excellent service. It is in the middle of "Casco Viejo" in Panama so you can walk to great restaurants, nightclubs and stores. The place on a weekend is very lively, we had a great time at the Habana/Panama nightclub and then headed to the center of "Casco Viejo" where it seemed like it was day time with so many people out on the street, this was at 3 AM on Saturday. The hotel has a jazz club on a side building that is outstanding with a lot of different shows on different days, we caught the jazz/bolero show and it was outstanding. We highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: next to the top rooms are the best I believe

The location in Casco Viejo was perfect. Our room looked right onto the square and although it was a bit small it was perfectly clean. The details in the room, the bed and small amenities were great. We were greeted kindly by staff and manager upon arrival and offered umbrellas due to some mild rain. We had drinks and an appetizer in the library which felt like a throw back to the 30s-40s with the attendant taking great care of us. Even delivering drinks to the roof top pool.

We love small hotels in historic buildings and this is one of the best. We had breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the restaurant and all were excellent. There is a very nice small club to the side of the hotel where we had drinks and listened to an excellent jazz group. The entire Casco Viejo area of Panama City is exciting because of all the restoration. Don't attempt to drive around though. The streets are narrow and parking is very limited. It is the old section of town and when it was built there weren't so many cars. It is much better to get out and walk around anyway. For now it is vibrant because of the mixture of old unrestored, newly restored, people living in apartments that have been there for a long time, young, and old. As restoration continues I fear the people that have been living there for a long time will be crowded out because the rents will increase dramatically. There are also clubs in buildings that may not have a roof or any interior walls. They are in the early stages of restoration I suspect.

I loved everything about this place. So much beauty. The service was excellent. The rooftop pool is not a full pool so you can't really swim in it but it's a great place to relax. I practiced yoga up there every morning. I would come back here in a heart beat. The location is excellent right in the heart of Casco Viejo. Very stylish place. Beds are extremely comfortable. I just loved it! Our room had a balcony facing the square. Heaven. Breakfast was not included but I still enjoyed eating in the hotel dining room. The staff really go out of their way to make you feel at home. We received little treats when they turned our bed over in the evenings. Sometimes a cookie, sometimes a pastry -these were delicious. So many details were taken care of. You will not be disappointed if you book here. Love love love!

We didn't actually stay here but took a tour with Alex and based on everything we saw and the staff that we met, this is the place to stay.
Beautifully redone building in the old part of Panama City, and the sensibility in the entire place is fantastic. Beautiful public areas, rooms and as I said, all the staff we met were friendly, helpful and lovely.
On my next trip, this is where we'll stay. Avoid the sterile hotels like the Waldorf at all costs.

This hotel fills a void that was sorely missing in pty: cool world-class luxury. I stayed in the panorama room and the view was breathtaking. Every detail of the lobby and room was impeccably curated. From the wood used for the furniture to the linens to the waterworks fixtures, it was top notch quality.
Location is as good as you'll get in Casco.
The only disappointment was the level of service in the restaurant for Sunday brunch. While the space was world class, the waiters were still decidedly on a panama schedule.
Kudos to this place, one more proof that panama is now a world class destination

This hotel is centrally located in the old section of Panama, Casco Viejo. The rooms are beautiful, the beds are very comfortable, as well as nice feather pillows. The bathroom and shower area are very large. The employees are very friendly and service oriented. From the hotel you can walk everywhere in Casco Viejo. There are many restaurants close to the hotel. Also there is a new coffee shop in the lobby of the hotel. Would be nice if they add a coffee maker and or a recipient for boiling water for teas at night.

Room Tip: Since the rate does not include breakfast, we had coffee and pastries in the new coffee shop of the...
