In November 2011 my husband and I arrived in Panama City after a transatlantic cruise. Prior to leaving on the cruise, my husband used bedmaps.com to locate this hotel. He called their 800 number and talked to them personally to find out what services would be available and about their location. The hotel is next to the metro mall, a three story complex with a large full service grocery store. You can walk safely to the mall from the hotel under a covered walk-way and security is everywhere. The mall offers plenty of shopping, a large variety of restaurants, and a movie theater. The hotel is a 15 minute drive from the airport. The services offered in the hotel are a self-service laundry, large rooms with internet service, flat screen TV with cable, coffee pots, and refrigerators. An on-site restaurant which serves food all day, a pool, gym, and 24 hour a day security. The little laundry room was neat & clean and a real plus after being on a 14 day cruise. The front desk had laundry detergent packets for fifty cents each and you could get coins for the machines there as well. The laundry room was right across the hall from our room. We had a high school soccer team staying on our floor. We were never disturbed by noise. The hotel was about six months old at the time it had a lovely decor and was very clean. It appeared to be popular with business travelers. The restaurant had wonderful food and a very nice international variety. The staff was extremely helpful anytime we made a request. There was always someone at the front desk who could speak English and they helped us with the rest of the staff. The front desk arranged a private driver for a city tour. His name was Aldrin. He gave a great tour with an extensive history lesson at a very reasonable price. After a five night stay we felt this hotel was a great choice for location and services offered.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are quiet & offer great views. Ask for what you need.

The hotel is located near the airport which is great. The only drawback is the hotel doesn't offer a free shuttle.

Breakfast was included and was terriffic. Variety of foods - hot and cold!
The resturant was phenomenal, the salmon was the best I have ever had!

The rooms were clean and suited our needs perfectly.

The service was exceptional! The maids came to turn down the sofa bed for us, front desk was great!

This hotel is located just beside MetroMall, one of the nicest Malls in Panama City. From there you can reach most of important attractions in Panama, but take in mind that traffic is a little chaotic. It has a small reception area and they messed up our reservations, even at the ckeck out they were a little messy, but managed to solve it in time. Apartments are nice and clean. Breakfast is good.

We stayed here for 4 days, as part of our 8 days in Panama City. We moved from downtown to the Courtyard so "we" could be near the 300 store MetroMall which is a 3 minute walk away. In addition, across the street via an enclosed crosswalk, is more outlet style shopping, so there is no shortage of shops.
The hotel is newer, and it's clean and run by friendly, helpful staff. The front desk staff, housekeepers and wait staff all made it a point to say Good Morning or whatever, as soon as they saw you.
Our room was over the pool on the 4th floor, and was spacious with King bed. The shower temps and pressure were 1st world in quality, and I used the desk and quality office chair a lot, with WIFI, as I am never really away from work.
My complaint is the noise. On Saturday night only, there was a party being held in the main floor party room, and it went until midnight. That's not unusual, but with us being on the top floor (4th), I could plainly hear the 'thump thump' of the music all night long. I wonder how noisy it was on the lower floors.
Secondly, the doors are not as sound proof as they should be. You could hear every door close from the other rooms, and any conversations. These doors need to be better sealed.
Overall, better soundproofing is needed.

The breakfast buffet was not included in our rate, but we utilized it everyday ($10). It was excellent. From Belgian waffles, a varierty of hot dishes, to choices of juices, it was a welcome start to every morning. The buffet turns into an a la carte restaurant and later a bar, so there is plenty of room.

Since we had stayed at another hotel the prior 4 days, I can say that this hotel is not near any tourists attractions, nor is it near any decent or highend restaurants. Yes, you have the food court at the mall, which is extensive, but its not an culinary experience in any way.
If you are here to visit Panama for a few days, then I strongly suggest staying downtown, closer to everything. The cab fares from this hotel to the attractions are $25-$40 return for every trip.

On the other hand, this hotel is very near Tocumen airport. It is ideal for people with connections.
Lastly, there is a very large construction project beginning next door to the hotel. It just started, but you can see it is going to be large....maybe another hotel or another mall? I suggest you inquire about the time of day the noise will be loudest, as it may effect your sleep comfort.

I would also suggest to the management, that they consider bringing in a couple of airport shuttles, as the airport arrivals were perpetual, and the hotel makes you use taxis ($). I would prefer that they increase the daily price a little and include the airport service, and also include the breakfast buffet.
When adding breakfast daily and the airport taxi fare, it adds up. Airport hotels should include these services and focus on their location strengths.

We were very pleased with our stay.

Room Tip: The higher the better, and try to avoid facing the freeway.
