Good suites for a competitive price

For about $150USD, you got a big, one-bedroom, two-bathroom suite with full amenities. The desk guy was a dud, but had little impact on our stay. I'd go here versus the Finistirre Suites 100 times out of a 100.

Fantastic view from our suite on 38th floor. Lovely suites. Good breakfast. Nice pool area. Staff were very nice apart from the room service staff who seemed less interested. Other guests turned up their noses at our backpacks and travel attire, however the reception staff were charming.

Thoroughly recommend this hotel, it was in the financial district and everything was very accessible by cheap taxi rides.

... trip between the oceans: a ten hour shortcut saving them several weeks. Downstairs, we watched an educational video (in 3D) before going back up to the viewing area. Each of the lock gates, now over a century old, weigh 700 tonnes. Little trains, each with its own driver, run on tracks next to the canal, doing the job of tugs. Tugs can't accompany the ships into the narrow channel in the docks so half a dozen of so trains use cables to stop the vessels hitting ...

... is awesome. She is a great cook, very nurturing, and intelligent. On the first night, we looked at pictures on my computer and talked (in broken Spanish) about my friends and family. Her vibe is very similar to my Nonny's which is very comforting. She has a daughter, Mati, who lives in Panama City with her husband and child.

My room is small, has a twin sized bed, a desk and a ceiling fan. I like it, but I also don't spend very much time in it.

Long exciting day!
