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.

It tastes sweet and it's a beautiful night in this beautiful square in this beautiful old city. Is it possible ...
... and then onto North America rather than sending their smaller boats across the Pacific and through the canal. We made it across the canal and into the first set of locks to take us back down to the Pacific ocean. By then the weather was looking ominous and by the time we made it to the final locks we were in the middle of a torrential downpour. Still we made our way through and the gates, allowing us to pass our final barrier to the Pacific.Our last ...
... to Carolina and proceeded to Copa Airlines check in where after 60 minutes at the counter I was given a standby ticket, as there was only one seat available which was given to Corrina. This was even though we had fully paid for the flight 3 months prior. There was no apology, no details, we were just to go to the gate - Panamanian customer service for you. Thankfully at the gate they were more helpful and I got a ticket and our bags were loaded on the plane. ...
... was up all night. I had avoided alcohol on the plane as I knew I wanted to take medication later so ordered G&T without the G, but with ice and a slice. The second came with no lemon and an apology, they had run out. The third came with 2 slices of lemon ‘to make up for the last time, found some in first class!"
On our way out to explore the city we bumped into the leader in the reception area, Juergen. Michi thought oh no not another ...
