An opulent hotel in Casco Viejo, Panama City's thriving and atmospheric colonial quarter, showcasing the capital's multi-layered past.

The 77 guest rooms and 11 suites are spread across three distinct wings: the Spanish Colonial wing dating back to 1688; the French colonial wing, built by Jesuit priests in 1739; and the American Beau-Arts wing which was once a high-end department store in the early 1900's. Every room has been individually curated with nods to the building's storied history; exposed original masonry and artwork and photographs from the hotel's 16,000-piece collection.

There are two bars and five restaurants, including 1739, a steakhouse with an underground wine cellar that dates back 300 years, and El Santuario, which resembles an old Spanish church serves Asian fusion cuisine. The rooftop pool and bar offer a wonderful vantage point with fine views over the Pacific Ocean where vessels wait their turn to pass through the canal.

  • "Most memorable was watching mother and baby two-toed sloths from bedroom window at Canopy Tower. Early morning on the roof of Canopy Tower listening to howler monkeys as the sun…

    NW, Kidlington

    NA, London
  • "Bocas del Toro was great fun and frivolous and a great journey there by boat."

    GS, Bushey
  • Top experiences in Panama - going through the canal and exploring Panama City and surrounding area. I was surprised to find that Panama is not just the Canal Zone!

  • Most memorable experience: “Tranquillo bay was a cut above everything else.   Staying on Waidup (near Isla Tigre) was also special.”

    MH, Chiswick
  • Because of my interest in shipping, the Panama Canal partial transit was fascinating.
