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. On the plus side, there was an outstanding buffet breakfast with breads, cheeses, eggs, sausages, French toast, fruits, yogurt, cereals, & an omelette chef.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled as a couple

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 if represents.

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.

Room Tip: I had a room on the busy street side & it was still quiet.

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. The hotel was clean and it was an overall pleasant stay. A marching band was practicing nearby until 4 am most nights, so it was hard to sleep, but there is nothing the hotel could do about that situation.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the road and away from the courtyard behind the hotel.
