Next to the Miraflores locks of the Panama Canal

Posted Apr 5, 2015
With only a half day between flights in and out of Panama City, I booked rooms at the Holiday Inn Panama Canal so as not to miss out on seeing this engineering wonder. We woke up to a view of ships passing right outside my window, and kept watching the ships during a lovely breakfast in the dining room. The Miraflores locks and museum are a very short taxi drive away- it would be an easy walk, but the roads are not set up for pedestrians. The hotel itself was clean and very nice, but it's the location that makes our stay fabulous.There was also a free shuttle to the airport.

Hotel is really far from International airport

Posted Mar 3, 2015
Pros: clean, fresh
Cons: Needs to be honest about location
Location: Great view of canal and close to visitor center,
Hotel is very close to Mirafloras locks and visitor Center, and is new and clean. However, they claim to be 10 minutes away from the airport. This is not true-40 minutes with no traffic-double that most times. Staff can not even provide directions to the airport.

away from the downtown noise.

We spent 4 wonderful nights here. An excellent view of the Panama Canal with the Miraflores Locks across the highway. The restaurant has an Excellent menu available with great choices. The staff here makes sure all your needs are met. I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

GREAT PLACE AND GOOD VALUE

Posted Dec 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
WE STAYED AT THIS HOTEL LAST YEAR AND ENJOYED STAYING ON THE CANAL SIDE. WE COULD WATCH THE SHIPS, BARGES AND CRUISE LINERS FROM OUR WINDOW GOING DOWN THE CANAL SO THAT WAS A REAL TREAT. IT IS CONVENIENT TO ALBROOK AIRPORT WHICH IS WHERE WE FLY FROM PANAMA CITY TO DAVID WHICH IS OUR DESTINATION FOR DRIVING ON TO BOQUETE. THE HOTEL IS CLEAN AND THE STAFF FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. THAT IS WHY WE DECIDED TO STAY THERE ON THIS TRIP.

Great food!

Posted Nov 10, 2014
One of the best things about this hotel is the consistent quality and diversity of food. I often come here for breakfasts and lunches and am always very pleased. All around, a very nice place and a good value. Just be aware that it is located in Clayton, so its convenient to get to the City of Knowledge, but somewhat far from the center of Panama City.

Comfortable room, with space to improve

Posted Nov 6, 2014
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Food. Restaurant. Air conditioner.
Location: City of Knowledge, very cool place to relax.
The staff was friendly but rather took a while to check in. The bar staff was super friendly. It did not go well with the restaurant. The food is not very good. The room was clean but the air conditioning was not cool enough and was feeling a little dirty. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The place is very quiet and relaxing. I would stay here again but at a lower price.
