... of metropolitan effervescence. On my left, a beautiful ocean, providing a serene foil of tranquility and nature. Oddly, they are one in the same. Both repetitious, methodical. As the bus flies through the city streets, moving in and out, people coming and going, remember how blessed we are. Remember how incredible place God has created here in Panama. Even before reaching your solitude, the place where you recharge, take advantage ...
... and when I went back out he was still around the plaza - although by this point he'd maybe had a few too many beers and he couldn't remember who I was anyway!
So three days and I'd already not been able to get money twice - by the time I did get cash all food places were closed so the only form of nutrition was to stay up with the hostel owner til about 2am and yep, have a beer! Not that the following day was to get any less uneventful...
I went for a trip into the ...
... us they did not have what we wanted. I had ordered pescado frito and when they asked type of fish I selected corvina. Apparently corvina was completely gone but it took them forever to tell us. We ordered another kind of fish that had dark flesh instead of the white flesh of the corvina. It seemed to be oilier then my experience with corvina but we were hungry and irritated. We ate paid and left. So unfortunately that was a terrible way to end a mostly good day. So we went tot he hostel ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Panama Marriott Hotel Panama City
Me hospedé en el Marriott la segunda semana de febrero. La ubicación es fantástica. Hay restaurantes de todos tipos y de precios diferents diez minutos a pie. Me encantó el café Costa Azul. Queda como cuatro minutos a pie, y hay selecciones a precios razonables para el desayuno, almuerzo, y cena. Hay un casino nuevo estilo Las Vegas, el Veneto, como diez minutos a pie o como tres minutos en taxi. Si tomas un taxi, no lo tomes desde el vestíbulo del hotel o la entrada. Sal, camina hacia la calle, y toma el taxi allí. Así puedes pagar entre 1 euro 20 y 1 euro 60 para un paseo en vez del triple de eso. El Marriott está bien situado, y es una de las mejores opciones en la ciudad. Las habitaciones son amplias, y tienen un ambiente bonito. El baño también estuvo bueno y bien equipado con productos de Neutrogena. El balneario es gratis para huéspedes, y tiene todas las comodidades que tiene el balneario de un hotel de buena calidad. Este hotel es bueno para hospedarse por negocios al igual que por placer. El personal es de buena calidad, y la limpieza fue de primera clase. La Ciudad de Panama es un lugar estupendo para visitar. Si no puedes pasar un buen rato aquí, no estás intentándolo o tienes un problema de actitud. Los panameños en general son un grupo educado, y te tratarán bien si los tratas con respeto. El Marriott es estupendo, y gozarás de la ciudad.
Increíble, pero ten cuidado con las plantas
La ubicación es estupenda, hay bufés, una pastelería, un gimnasio, y una piscina. La habitación era grande y cómoda. Por favor, por favor, por favor solicita una habitación en las plantas altas. Las fiestas los fin de semanas son ruidosas, y duran hasta las 3 a.m. La gerencia nos dio una habitación disponible para dormir el sábado en la noche, pero tal vez no tengas esa suerte. La cuarta planta definitivamente no fue lo suficientemente alta.
Stayed at the Marriott the second week in February.
Awesome but watch the floors...
Great location, buffets, pastry shop, gym and pool. The room was large and comfortable. Please, please, please ask for high floors. The weekend parties are loud and last till 3 AM. The management gave us an empty room to sleep in on Saturday night but you may not be so lucky. The 4th floor was definetely not high enough.
My family and I stayed at the Panama Marriott during the last week in October 2005. Overall, the staff is very friendly and many are bilingual. Despite arriving at 11pm on a Sunday night, our check-in went smoothly. Although there were no bellmen at that hour, the security staff (dressed in business suits, not uniforms), showed us to our room and helped us with our luggage.
I stayed there for a week in May. I also had my wedding reception there, 125 people. The service is great, even better if you know some spanish. The food is excellent, as is the casino and pool. Cabs are plentiful, you can also walk the surrounding area with no worries for your safety at all.
Overall, I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed my stay. Most USA folks are very misinformed at what that city is all about. I had a better time there than I have had in any U.S. city, and I've been to them all.
God bless developing countries!
We stayed at the Panama Marriott for 10 days & 9 nights in September where our 2004 PQI Conference took place. The service was absolutely the best and the staff was exceptionally courteous and ready to lend a hand. The rooms are well organized and accommodating. Also, they have cable TV, a small refrigerator with lots of goodies in it.
EXCELLENT BUT ONLY ON ONE SIDE OF THE BUILDING
Great hotel, everything you expect from a Marriott a at capital city.
BUT... stay out of the rooms at the side of the Bacchus dance club. Even the 16th floor "enjoys" the BOOM BOOM BOOM till 4 A.M.
The uneven numbers are to be avoided!!!
I just came back from a six day vacation to Panama City. We stayed at the Panama Marriott Hotel. It was fabulous! The lobby was gorgeous with huge displays of flowers. The hotel staff was extremely pleasant and problems were resolved immediately. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are extra large. Guests are made to feel welcome and very safe. Security is top notch. The gym is wonderful and is bi-level with classes given every weekday evening. The Marriott offers massages/facials and I received a wonderful massage from a highly trained therapist. The pool is lovely and very quiet. The Marriott is centrally located. It is only a two minute walk from the Via Espana. Via Espana has many restaurants/supermarkets (El Rey)/stores to shop in. There is a wonderful Italian restaurant located within two blocks from the Marriott called "Jimmy's". (Order the pizza..It's great!) Overall, Panama was wonderful and I cannot wait to return to the Marriott!!
I stayed at the Panama Marriott for 6 nights at the end of February 2004. The service was absolutely fabulous and the staff was extremely polite and helpful. The rooms are very clean and nicely furnished. Also, the televisions in the rooms, amongst many other channels, offer FoxNews Channel and CNN.
