Panama Marriott Hotel

Calle 52 and Calle Ricardo Arias, , Panama

From the airy lobby, with its marble floors and potted palms, to the sumptuous guest rooms, this 20-story hotel, which in 2014 opened a 14-story second tower in the heart of the financial district, is one of the city's best. The bright, carpeted guest rooms have high ceilings, a hardwood desk, a couch and table, and a marble bathroom. Some view the sea through the office-tower jungle, but others overlook the skyscraper next door. The new tower is exclusively for the executive-level rooms, which have larger windows and use of a concierge lounge where free breakfast and cocktails are served. There is a full-service gym and a small pool on the second floor. The expansive lobby has an elegant bar, café, business center, gift shop, and sports bar; the "great room" concept lobby bar and restaurant features live music on Thursday and Friday. There's also a Mediterranean restaurant, and a two-story casino next door, and the surrounding tree-lined streets hold plenty more bars and restaurants.
