We spent a week at the Holiday Inn. Booked it for the canal view but when got there it was a tree view with minimal canal view though we paid extra for the view. Did have a good view each day from the dining room at breakfast. The shuttle to airport only goes once a day and not close to...

We felt safe and staff was very helpful. Close to the Miraflores Locks and we could watch the ships from our window. Nice to cool off in the pool after a day seeing the sights. There was a great breakfast included and we ate dinner here as well and the meal was great and reasonably priced.

The hotel is well located near the Panama Canal with great view of ships and vessels passing by the Canal. Nice service, good food, and well clean room. Only I would say that would be excelent with a bigger pool.

Our group of six were in Panama for a 2 day whirlwind trip of the canal and some sightseeing. We choose the Holiday Inn for its superior location to the Mirafloras Locks. The hotel was undergoing small repairs (we didn't ever see anyone actually working on the wall repairs - only the plaster spots on the walls in the hallways)...

A great place to stay, perfect rooms and the view of the Panama canal and approach to Miraflores locks is spectacular, especially from the higher floored rooms. However: BEWARE, I booked and paid for two rooms which included breakfast. Upon arrival they knew nothing about breakfast and charged for this. When questioned about the charge, the manager appears and suddenly...

I arrived at the Holiday Inn Panama Canal Hotel in the afternoon and was warmly greeted by Edgar. He was so helpful at the Front Desk and definitely made me feel special. When someone else interrupted us, he told them that he was busy helping this VIP. Further, as an IHG Platinum Rewards Member, I was upgraded to the suite...

This was our first night in Panama. Hotel was quiet, clean and comfortable. The canal is right there but really no view at all. We were able to walk down closer to it but decided that it was too dark.

This is an option in case you need to stay close to the ciudad del saber. The rooms are old and not taken care. The services are efficient (including cash advance and shuttles to Miraflores) bar food is reasonable, breakfast is just basic.

This is probably our at least 5th time staying here....probably more. We arrived today purposely almost 1 1/2 hours after check in time, only to be told the room was not ready. We didn't see hardly any vehicles in the parking lot, so guessing there were plenty of rooms that could have been ready. The guy got right on it...I...
