Holiday Inn at the Panama Canal
Travel Blogs from Panama City
After a very easy flight, I passed through one of the most efficient and organized Customs and security checkpoints I have ever experienced. A great first impression of Panama! My wonderful driver was waiting for me and thankfully he had double checked my name, since the original sign said "Zeltier" then underneath it Pelletier. I guess we would …
... once yet another announcement was made to look for you errant children! The joys of travel, an invite to New Orleans and how so many people in the world are seeking a better life for themselves and their families. I've seen it everywhere I've been. Panama is a Mecca for Colombians and Central Americans because of the economy and chance of a job. Better than what some face at home with uncertainty at every turn. We moved through the longest part of the canal, all having to be ...

... right at the front of the boat. We then had dinner and set off. We motored out of the harbour but after not long they set up the sails and off we went.

For the next 2 nights and day Peri was sea sick the whole time, throwing up 4 times and having to sleep outside. It was rough and *********** the plus side we saw dolphins swimming next to us by moonlight ...

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.
