Holiday Inn at the Panama Canal
Travel Blogs from Panama City
Arrived in Miami fairly early in the morning. Our outbound flight was in the same terminal, but at the opposite end from where we arrived. We didn't think it would be that far of a walk, so we opted not to get on the little train they had within the terminal.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHoliday Inn at the Panama Canal Panama City
The main reason for choosing this hotel is, obviously, the proximity to the Panama Canal Visitor Center. The hotel was clean and comfortable, but had little in the way of amenities. We booked a canal view room and requested either Floor 5 or 6, but they didn't have any available at that time. Since we'd flown overnight and it was still somewhat early, we accepted a room on Floor 4. We wished we'd have waited until a higher room was available.
Overall, an acceptable place to stay for one or two nights.
