The hotel is conveniently located in front of the Panama Canal, their main view and three minutes from Albrook Mall. The hotel is located at the best area to combine business and pleasure. Enjoy comfortable facilities to ensure total comfort and stunning view of the Pacific side of the Panama Canal as well as towards the Garden City and a complimentary shuttle to some nearby places.
InterContinental Miramar is located on the Panama Bay with a spectacular view of Old Panama, the Casco Antoguo and the new Panama City Skyline. The hotel provides easy access to the business and banking district, which is located less than a mile away.
A very pleasant experience no more than 30 minutes from the City. A nice quite beach resort, good facilities, nice restaurants with great pools - especially liked the quite pool "relaxation" area.[More]
Great way to spend a nice weekend without having to drive too far. [Less]
Less Attentive Front Desk Staff
As always, check-out day is when guests rush to take care of last minute things, and that is also when guests will be needing assistance from the hotel staff.
Though not a major issue, I found the[More]
front desk lady at the time of my check-out on June 12 was more concerned with her paper/clerical stuff than assisting guests. We needed to get our luggage put in the storage/holding room while we were still taking care of other business prior to our flights out. But there was nobody at the bell desk. The front desk clerk was told about it at that instance, but she just didn't care although she was practically doing nothing more important as the hotel wasn't even busy.
I've worked as a front desk clerk in a five-star hotel years ago. We were trained to be customer-centric. I hope InterCon will strive to get there. [Less]
GGG -- Great service, Great quality, Great customer experience
Is there a place to stay in Panama where you can enjoy all those things that make us love resorts and just within 5 minutes distance from the capital city?
Yes, there is, and its name is PLAYA[More]
BONITA RESORT & SPA. Me and my family had a great time, the level of attention the staff provided was superb (special thanks to the concierge Patricia Lezcano, who took care of all our needs since the moment we checked in to the day we left, we can't thank her enough) and the overall experience in terms of installations, entertainment activities, food quality, rooms, drinks and service was more than pleasant :)
We hope to return soon and I'm confident my CE will be just better. [Less]
Great stay in Panama
The hotel is very well located, close to a Metro station, which makes it accesible to every part of the city, including by taxi, which is affordable. It was a nice experience in a comfortable hotel.[Less]
Excellent location for a short vacation.
I didn't spend much time in the room since I was exploring the city.
Upgraded to a suite as a Platinum member on a Pointsbreak.
Very comfortable place to stay, but the pool is tiny.[Less]
Crowne Plaza Panama is my hotel of choice when visiting Panama on business. The hotel's location and staff are ideal for the business travel.
As a testimony to the pleasant staff, services and[More]
recognition given, what surprised me was having returned to the hotel a week after my initial stay in June, I received a complementary room upgrade. Nothing more could have been more special for me as a loyal IHG member. [Less]
We had a good all around experience at the Miramar. The hotel is located in the center of the city very close to the bayfront, and has killer views in multiple directions. We had a room on the 23rd[More]
floor and one of the best hotel views I've ever had, looking out over the bay and the city skyline. We were able to walk to Casco Viejo in 20-30 minutes (you go right by the fish market, which is a must that some guide books won't tell you about# and to restaurants and bars along Calle Uruguay in 5-10 minutes. You do have to cross a very busy road to walk anywhere.
The hotel is not cheap by Panama City standards #though still reasonable for a full service hotel in a major city), and has a few annoying quirks. For example, the directory in our room and signage in the elevator both indicated a gift shop located off the main lobby, but quite a bit of exploring and a conversation with the front desk confirmed that said gift shop doesn't exist.
The restaurant in the hotel falls into the "good not great" category - we had a nice meal there, but nothing particularly memorable.
The staff here were superb, very friendly and hardworking and most with impressive language skills.
Overall, while I was expecting a somewhat more "polished" experience from my first stay at an IC, this is a nice option for staying in the city and we would consider returning. [Less]
Hotel service, location, room and overall stay was excellent. For those who like to stretch their legs (either walking, jogging or running) the Av. Balboa Boulevard is a great option during the day[More]
and late at night with great family environment. This time I even walked (20-30 minute walk) to Casco Viejo where plenty of restaurants and night life is present. [Less]

Although The buffet was extremely accommodating to all tastes. I thing a snack bar would be a good addition and not all people want to eat that much and the temptation is there.[Less]
