Nice and close to the Panama Canal and the museum. Not too far from the main part of the city. Not a lot right close to this spot, but the room was nice, the breakfast was good, and the staff were friendly.

Very nice hotel in a quiet area. Shuttle to the Canal. Good restaurant with great breakfast. Definitely would stay there again. Overall great service. We wanted to run an open tab with AX card, but the front desk didn't seem to "get it", was frustrating.

Great view of the Panama Canal from my room on the top floor. Nice bar in the lobby (Bookends) and the bartenders, especially Carlos, were very friendly and attentive to keeping a cold beer in front of me all week.

A very nice hotel with friendly staff, good views of the canal (ask for a room that faces that way) and right in the rapidly growing City of Knowledge. The rooms are large and well-appointed. The buffet breakfast, while not spectacular, is decent enough. A special call-out for the very nice, cozy Bookends Lobby bar, and the wonderful bartenders who... More

Everytime I go to Panama, which is very often, I choose the Holiday Inn at the Panama Canal. The people is super friendly and helpful, the restaurant is very good as well and the rooms are clean and comfortable. You.ll be close to everywhere. The Panama Canal view from here is awesome! I enjoy this place a lot!
