Honestly speaking, the experience was OK! Check in was cold or front desk too serious. Profile information was combined with another family member, which was not so good, but it wasn't that much of a trouble for me. Staff don't seem to be so welcoming. The room was great! I had a balcony and could enjoy the view. Bed was...

First, let me praise the staff. Nilka Thyme is one of the front of house managers, and she has helped me with everything from getting traveling companions to the hospital to arranging off-site entertainment, from advice for finding a local florist to the best ways to hail cabs. She has helped in so many ways over the years, and with...

It's a beautiful hotel which It provides all the amenities you need for a pleasant stay. Free shuttle from/to airport (runs every 30 minutes and it's available 24/7). Also the hotel has a restaurant, free wifi and much more. Convenient location very close to airport.

Our room faced the Del Carmen cathedral which is charming but features 6 a.m. bells. Good beds, extra pillows, fine linens. In room safe. Refrigerator lacks freezer compartment. Two electrical plugs didn't work. Alarm clock broken. Broken arms on desk chair. Sink plug doesn't hold water for shaving. Dingy lighting for dingy shower with chipped tub and badly stained grout....

A poor survived prototype, with lack of general services. The restaurant, as well as the rest of the hotel are old, nonattractive and reflect the 1990's hotel culture. Breakfast is a poor buffet display, the customers struggling to receive service attention. The evening meals are not different. The food served can be described as awe full ! Overpriced for what...

People at this hotel where very friendly and helpful. Especially Luis De Frias. Luis went out of his way to ensure we were taken care of. In fact with his help we were able to order a traditional Panamanian dish not on the menu. This is good service. Thank you Luis.

The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Downtown Panama City is in a great location, in the middle of everything, the prices are good, the service is great, the rooms are comfortable, and the food is good. Though it is a fair walk to the Promenade along the Ocean, it is doable.

The people made the difference in this hotel. The room was average size with a small bathroom and basically decorated, but the food and attentive service made up for any shortcomings in the physical layout of the space.
