New Washington Hotel
Ranked #8 of 9 Hotels in Colon
Reviewed 10 March 2012

The city of Colon itself is rather a mess. It is full of run down properties and poor looking people......lots of razor wire. This hotel is a bright spot and for one interested in history, architecture and 99 year old buildings, this one shouldn't be missed. The hotel has three stories. We did not stay here.....we visited, had lunch and spent some time touring around the hotel and grounds. The lobby is a time capsule.....beautiful marble floors, art on the ceilings......an interesting old reception area. There is a large formal dining room, obviously just used the previous night for a Quinciñiera....seats several hundred people....very interesting. The front is a large concrete patio facing on the Atlantic and dozens of ships anchored nearby, and with an outdoor swimming pool. The cafe was nothing special.....lunch was served quickly and friendly.....reasonable price.....construction was going on in the informal lunch area....clearly the owners are still investing in this property as a business. If you're in the are.....don't miss this throw back to the early 20th century. In Colon itself, be careful.....that's what our guide told us.

Since my last comment on this hotel, things have changed somewhat. The food is much better, the fish especially the snapper it great....must have changed the chef!!! the pool and the pool bar still need attention... and the internet is now accessible from the rooms.
