Mi experiencia y de mi familia en el hotel fue excelente. Recibimos todo lo prometido, nos suministraron transporte al aeropuerto, el personal fue muy atento y el desayuno nos pareció de lo mejor. Ha resultado el mejor Holiday Inn que he visitado. Su ubicación frente a las esclusas de Miraflores resultó muy conveniente y nos complacieron con una habitación con vista al Canal. Es limpio y agradable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seething Great Staff
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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joey97 One of my favorite Holiday Inn hotels.
This is my second time here. On both occasions I have stayed more than 1 week for business purposes. I find this place has the right combination of professionalism and a relaxed atmosphere. I believe they use this particular hotel as a training/school for new staff, so sometimes not everything works as well as it should, but the attitude of the staff and the management more than makes up for it. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rolling Stone Alone Wonderful experience.
My stay at the Holiday Inn Panama Canal was one of the best vacations of my life. The room was spacious, the king bed and pillows were comfortable, and the maid staff made sure I had everything I needed. I also enjoyed my meals in the hotel restaurant. The breakfast buffet included every kind of fresh fruit imaginable, along with cheeses, cereals, yogurts and a huge variety of breads and pastries. They also served ham and eggs and other hot breakfast items that are not on my diet so cannot tell you just what all they had in that area. I also had dinner a couple of times while a guest, and both meals were excellent. The only negative comment I have is that this hotel, like all European hotels I've stayed in, required you to insert you room key card to turn your lights/electriciy on when you came back to the room, which made for coming back to a hot room. The air condioner quickly brought the temp. back down, though, so was really not a problem. I look forward to returning.

Very pleasant stay. The room was very comfortable. When I got back to the US, I stayed in a well known hotel chain and the facility was not nearly as nice. The front desk workers were very nice and helpful with all our our questions. Will definitely be staying here when we fly out of Panama.

This was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at, regardless of price. lovely, clean, great service, nice people, great food.
2 negatives; 1) no shuttle from the airport to the hotel, 2) WiFi signal was very poor in the room.

I liked the details, e.g. the coffee and the bottle of water every day.
I also enjoyed the gym where I run any time after work.
The bed and the view of my room were nice and confortable.
Finally, I also enjoyed the breakfast where I had several choises and the service at dinner time was excellent as well.
Thanks, it was the 2nd time at your hotel and always that well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hans63 Spacy room, good breakfast and refreshing pool
Spacias room, good breakfast and refreshing pool and easy access to Canal and Albrook shopping, both with free one-way shuttle from the hotel.
Even though we forgot to reserve space in the shuttle, the reception called the shullte and brought us to the destination. No hussle, very good service!!
We recommend the hotel, because the visit to the Canal can get quite expensive if you arrange it via a tour operator, better stay at this hotel and use the shuttle.

I love to stay at the Holiday Inn City of Knowledge. When I arrive and the staff recognizes me it's like coming home to my family. They show me affection and that they really cares. I love when they call me Dona Vilma. That means they know me. So I try to be a nice guest so they continue giving me the treatment I like.
The room ... mh mh mh! I always sleep well in my bed in any of the floors. it is always comfortable and clean! And the view ... it's like transporting to the eighth wonder of the world. I love to watch boats arriving at the canal and being loaded into this wonderful place. Definitely, it is one of my favorite places to stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hans55 Great improvement!
This was my 4th stay at Holiday Inn in Clayton, Panama. And my best stay - staff service has improved very much. Especially the restaurant service has improved a lot, so has the reception.
In earlier stays service was very poor - but now really good.
Room could be improved - AC is really noisy. Bathroom amenities could be improved. But good sleep, good waterpressure in shower and WiFi working really well.
An extra plus to staff in restaurant !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SaltandPepper Relaxing outside but close to the city
This was my second trip to Panama. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Panama Canal 17 days in December and January.
The inn is outside the main part of the Panama City which means it was away from the noise I encountered on my first visit to Panama.
I'd rented a car and began exploring after breakfast. BTW, driving in Panama is not as much "fun" as driving in the Middle East, but it's a lot more "fun" than driving in the UK or Canada.
The breakfast buffet included in the room charge was excellent. The selection varied by day, included the usual North American items sometimes prepared in a a different way, like sausages with tomatoes and peppers. An omelette bar without a tip jar was refreshing. There is a tip box at the host / cashier counter and all was well appreciated. Cold cuts and cheeses were different for a hotel buffet and the mini croissants and cinnamon rolls were excellent.
After a day exploring the city, an evening in the lobby, poolside or relaxing in the room was welcome. A few days I spent at the hotel at poolside to recharge.
"Everyone goes to the beach on Christmas and New Years." After a two hour drive to the beach in Santa Clara and a six hour drive back on New Years, I agree and was glad to have the Holiday Inn to go back to.
The inn staff were all friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. There were a couple of days with towel issues, but these were immediately resolved. A note left at the mini-bar got a lot more tea bags and sugar.
Overall, an excellent experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Voltaire2013 Dinner and misc. stuff
Notes on our stay:
Your chef is a keeper. Your limited dinner menu left us unhappy-since it is the only place to eat in the area, unless we took a cab ride. The $24/person charge for dinner buffett is very excessive. We stayed 4 nights total, but only used the buffett one time. Your housekeeper did not leave towels one day (took the used ones, and did not leave new ones to replace them). Coffee in the room is very good - Panama certainly produces fine coffee! You left only one tea bag in our room for two people to share. Why? Your front desk personel were exceptional. Wake-up calls were timely and correct in every way! Very friendly. Thank you. This was our second trip to Panama - we love Panama!!!

Stayed at the Holiday Inn with family for three nights. Rooms were spacious and very clean. We also had a wonderful view of the Mira Flores locks. There is a lobby bar and a small shop where you can purchase snacks and specialty coffee. Breakfast is a free buffet each day and there were so many choices that we could not try everything. We ate dinner one night at the restaurant and it was good too. Another restaurant was in walking distance so we tried that and had a nice meal. Plenty of free parking. The staff was excellent, responding to our every need. Had some issues with the door locks in one of the rooms and maintenance was there very quickly to resolve the problem. I would recommend this hotel.
