Our room faced the Del Carmen cathedral which is charming but features 6 a.m. bells. Good beds, extra pillows, fine linens. In room safe. Refrigerator lacks freezer compartment. Two electrical plugs didn't work. Alarm clock broken. Broken arms on desk chair. Sink plug doesn't hold water for shaving. Dingy lighting for dingy shower with chipped tub and badly stained grout....

A poor survived prototype, with lack of general services. The restaurant, as well as the rest of the hotel are old, nonattractive and reflect the 1990's hotel culture. Breakfast is a poor buffet display, the customers struggling to receive service attention. The evening meals are not different. The food served can be described as awe full ! Overpriced for what...

People at this hotel where very friendly and helpful. Especially Luis De Frias. Luis went out of his way to ensure we were taken care of. In fact with his help we were able to order a traditional Panamanian dish not on the menu. This is good service. Thank you Luis.

The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Downtown Panama City is in a great location, in the middle of everything, the prices are good, the service is great, the rooms are comfortable, and the food is good. Though it is a fair walk to the Promenade along the Ocean, it is doable.

The people made the difference in this hotel. The room was average size with a small bathroom and basically decorated, but the food and attentive service made up for any shortcomings in the physical layout of the space. The hotel was clean and it was an overall pleasant stay. A marching band was practicing nearby until 4 am most nights,...

Very central location, easy walking to financial district, good restaurants, mass transit train, buses (if that's your thing), and short taxi rides to government offices to do the residency visa thing. The English speaking lobby and restaurant staff is ultra-courteous, efficient, and seem to genuinely appreciate you as their guest.

Certainly not the standard of most other hotels in Panama City. The hotel is tired and the staff were not friendly on any occasion. Housekeeping was done very late in the day and the corridors have a very musty smell. Swimming pool was very refreshing and bar staff made up for most others who work there. Wifi was also pretty...

We stayed in the Crowne Plaza downtown hotel the nights of March 3rd and 4th. This rather small hotel was located in a nice area and is apparently a business hotel, rather than one designed for tourists. Our room was comfortable and provided an interesting view. The 4th floor outdoor pool and deck were very appealing, and provided beautiful views...

When our hotel's guests choose to stay with us, they are only a few miles from first-class restaurants, nice casinos and great shopping.

In addition, guests need travel only two miles from our hotel's location to reach the Panama Canal. After a long day of touring Panama City, Panama, our hotel's facilities can help you relax. Enjoy a traditional dish at our on-site restaurant, La Galeria, then grab a nightcap at the Memories Sports Bar & Lounge.
