Panama Marriott Hotel is conveniently located on the corner of Calle 52 Este and Avenida 3A Sur close to many of Panama biggest attractions. Restaurants and great shopping are only a block away. We got a great deal. We paid $165 per night panama-marriott.getpanamacityhotels.com matched the price I found on another site. When we got there, the doormen were extremely professional and friendly. The lobby was gorgeous. Plenty of space to relax, a fireplace, newspapers, and magazines. There’s a coffee bar, sit down restaurant and an Irish bar. (The Irish Bar is named “Costa Azul” a homage to the building’s former Police Station status.) There is also a 24-hour gym and business center and several conference centers. The front desk staff were just as friendly as the doormen of the Marriott Hotel. Right next to the elevator there was a concierge desk ready to answer any questions and book tours for average prices (priceline.com/hotel-deals/h2952105/PA/Panama/Panama-City/Panama-Marriott-Hotel.html).
We were upgraded to a deluxe room at Panama Marriott Hotel, which was nice. We took the elevator up to the 8th floor and enjoyed our large room. Walking in there is a huge mirror down the hallway before the room. Inside we saw a beautifully decorated room with non-traditional wall art and nice bedding. The bed was perfect. We sunk into it every night slept peacefully through the night. There was a large desk, a chair and table next to the window, an armoire with a television, refrigerator (2 complementary bottles of water included every day), and room for clothes. There were two closets to hang clothes. The bathroom was large. It was a standard size tub with Aveda toiletries. They also provide to large robes that were so wonderful I wanted to bring them back with me. Jurys is also considerate and keeps a branded umbrella in the room in case it rains.
The Jurys Hotel has 24-hour housekeeping. I didn’t know what that meant, but I do know that they were providing turn-down service every night. They gave us a piece of chocolate and a nice quote on fancy paper. In the morning we had a complimentary newspaper.
Best of all, and what I feel really differentiated this hotel. I was in Panama for my birthday. After we checked in here (trivago.com/panama-city-86285/hotel/panama-marriott-hotel-99446), we immediately left to grab a bite to eat. When we got back there was a bottle of wine, two wine glasses, and a note saying: “Thank you for choosing Jurys to celebrate your birthday.”
Overall, I felt that Marriott Hotel was the perfect place to spend a holiday in Panama. With the great staff, beautiful rooms, and central location – you can’t go wrong.
