10.0 Excellent
Conveniently located property and well priced. Note however that if you need a wash cloth, you should ask for it, as I don't think they are issued as standard. The room was great and the housekeeping very good.
8.2 Great
Pros:Service and location were excellent.
Cons:Bed and pillows
8.2 Great
Pros:Wonderful, massive breakfast buffet. Full array of services for travelers, plenty of friendly staff.
Cons:Food other than breakfast very average and overpriced. The hotel taxis charged way higher prices than other taxis. Rooms are in need of updating with dingy carpeting, tile and dated decor.
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:Location was good
Cons:Hotel is outdated, they couldn’t find our reservation, cable didn’t work.
5.7 Passable
Cons:When I arrived the hostess told me that my reservation was cancelled by the hotel because I modified my booking and they foud two reservations, one cancelled and one for one night: they deliberately cancelled the good reservation ! Then they reopened my reservation, after I was complaining, and they assign me a smelly room. There were a strong foul smell in the room, I guess from the toilet. I complain again and they changed the room to a normal one. I really don't like to arrive to an hotel late in the evening after a long trip and have this kind of problems !
7.4 Good
Pros:Compared to the last time I stayed there, they really stepped up on the cleanliness. much better Also at the dinner party we attended I had a horrible headache and needed a coffee badly. the server Liam and Juan were very helpful and kind to get me the coffee and check back on me to see if I was better.
Cons:Some of the staff was very eager to assist and others seemed bothered when asked a question. Which was totally undermined the good customer service provided by their peers. Also I could not pay for room service with a credit card nor cash, they wanted me to provide a 50.00 deposit to use room service and the difference would be returned at check out. I felt this was unacceptable for hotel of that quality.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:I have never stayed at a hotel that had such an amazing complimentary breakfast. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff was wonderful.
Cons:It does not include a lounge for dancing. My husband and I wanted to dance a bit but not really go to a club. It would have been nice if the hotel had a lounge were we could sit and dance a bit.
8.0 Great
Pros:Exactly what I need for business.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Very modern and spacious rooms in the heart of downtown Panama City. Breakfast buffet was the best! Better than all-inclusive resorts.
8.3 Great
Pros:Great value, location and amenities!
