We choose La Meridien because we had good experiences with this brand in the past. This hotel in Panama City is not worth to have this brand. Place is very average, including rooms, swimming pool and services. Not very polite guy in the reception during the night. One time before I stayed in Hard Rock Hotel and I prefiere this...

This hotel is located in the nice neighborhood of Bella Vista, where you have restaurants and shops and high-end furniture stores. It's 20 minutes by car to the Miraflores visitor center and 15 minutes to Casco Viejo (historic district); 20 minutes to airport. Avenida Balboa is also a good place for long walks along the shore. They close one lane...

As an SPG member we try to stay at the chains hotels. Le Meridien didn't let us down. Our first contact was with the reservations department asking for advice on airport to hotel transport. I've been to a lot of LatAm countries and taxis are either great or dangerous. LM responded and arranged for a private driver to pick us...

Spacious, contemporary & comfortable are the best words to describe the 1-bedroom suites with views of the water at Le Meridien. Noisy might also apply, so it’s better to have a room on the opposite side from the oceanside traffic. We had bookend nights at Le Meridien traveling to and from Argentina; it is a good way to break up...

We loved our stay at Le Meridien Panama. The staff made us feel super comfortable and welcome, there was no corporate hotel feel, we felt like staying in a small boutique property. We had dinner in the newly refurbished restaurant and both food and service were great as well.

The hotel is supposed to be friendly with business travelers. But I was really dissapointed. I asked for a room with ocean view, and they say those are really noisy because they face Balboa Av. I was assigned a room on the 2 floor, city view. That was really noisy as well because of the refrigeration system, it never stop....

A double high ceiling lobby features an overturned glass pyramid reflecting vibrant colors, while a black granite lobby blends with golden accents, and a prominent 46 feet high atrium featuring lively glass. ... more   less
