The staff that was at the reception desk when I checked in was friendly, courteous and polite. Two of those staff members, Astrid and Rogelio deserve a special "thank you" for their professionalism in handling the check-in process. The room that I had reserved on the "Canal view floor" was unavailable at the time of my arrival. I spent one night on a lower floor (3rd) but was transferred to the fifth floor the very next day. The view of the canal from that floor was spectacular. Breakfast was a special treat. Fresh fruits, cereals, pastries, a variety of specially made breads, a variety of different meats and cheeses and coffee that is worth its weight in gold were items to choose from. TV provided many shows in English though at times the reception could have been better. All in all, it was a wonderful stay and I highly recommend this hotel if ever you happen to be in the Clayton area of Panama.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hejsan Nice hotel overlooking Panama Canal
I loved the view from the room. Cool to see ships transiting the Canal out of the window. The hotel is nice and modern and very clean. The staff was nice (especially the front desk staff). There is a nice pool and and attractive lobby area. The hotel wifi is very good. The rooms are furnished with new furniture and comfortable bedding as well as flat screen tvs and attractive bathrooms.
The buffet breakfast at the hotel is excellent and they gave a deal for $10 if I bought it when I checked in. Certainly a good deal for an excellent breakfast. in the evening the menu was a bit expensive and the sandwich I had there was so/so. The evening pasta buffet was $24. They gave me a coupon for a welcome \drink at the lobby bar when I checked in and it was a good place to relax and chat with the bartender.
The location of the hotel is good. At first I was kind of concerned as it is a bit out of town and quite a ways from the airport (about a $40+ taxi ride to airport). But, it is easy to find and with the location a rental car is really great to have. (It's about a $5-$10 trip into and out of town with a taxi). The hotel is set in the Ciudad de Saber which is a neighborhood that has been transformed from a US Military base into a research complex with many schools, institutions etc. There is even a small mall/restaurant complex in the neighborhood that seems to cater to students, etc. The Panama Canal Visitors center at the Miraflores lock is a must visit - It costs $15 but it's really enlightening. It's also right across from the hotel.
My only drawback with the stay was that the room temperature was really cold and I couldn't control it with the thermostat - which meant i was going from a quite hot outdoors into a quite cold room.
All things considered i would definitely stay again at this hotel. It's a nice, clean, safe option away from the bustle of downtown Panama City, yet it's also quite close and convenient to most places in the downtown area.

Mi estadía de dos semanas fue placentera. Observar los barcos acercarse a las exclusas era una linda vista que tenía desde mi habitación.
El personal muy atento, amable y profesional.

Second stay. Great view of the canal on higher floors. Of all hotels I have stayed in Panama, this was the nicest. I rated overall experience and ability to relax lower than excellent. There was a birthday party two floors up and the music was so loud I couldn't sleep so packed, got dressed and had someone meet me at the elevator with a key to another room. I will definitely be back and will ask about parties, music and bands before saying ok to a room/floor.
