Very nice experience

Our stay at Country Inn and Suites in Panama was very pleasant. Beds had new bedspreads and room was spacious enough for the 3 of us. Breakfast came with the room and was a full buffett, with scrambled eggs, sausage, rolls (sweet and regular), yogurt, fresh fruit, cereal and anything you want to drink. Wireless internet access was good from the room. The pool and landscape were beautiful. Staff was very helpful. It should be noted that this hotel is located on the other side of Panama City from Tocumen Airport. This means if you are renting a car, you have to traverse the city through heavy traffic and congestion, along with poor to no street signs and poor maps to guide you, to access the hotel. It's best to take a taxi from the airport. The hotel is located at the entrance to The Causeway, and also has a TGIF Friday's Restaurant on premise.

It was called Leno Carboni and was situated on the water with a beautiful view of Panama City. The restaurant was very clean, chefs& workers in white uniforms, hats and plastic gloves. Food was delicious, reasonable and beutifully presented.

Right on Panama Canal

Watch the ships enter and leave the Panama Canal from your balcony (pay only 15$ extra to get canal view room; well worth it). Also, if you will be taking the ferry to Contador Island in the Pearl Islands you can walk to the ferry dock from the hotel. Hotel has a TGI Fridays connected; outside and inside dining (English/Spanish menu, but don't expect the wait staff to speak or understand english)

Christmas in on the Pamana Canal

I just returned from 5 days and nights at Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Panama Canal, Panama. The location right on the canal was great—I sat at the pool and watched the ships go by. The place is undergoing a renovation- I stayed in the new area, had a view of the Bridge of Americas and the canal. The room was clean- everything comfortable. The staff was nice and depending on who was working very helpful. The drawback is the location—it isn’t by downtown or Casco Viejo. You have to cab everywhere—even down the causeway. Cabs can be spendy—it costs $30 round trip to Miraflores locks and $30 -$40 roudtrip to Casco Viejo and downtown. I liked the location- it was relaxing. The free buffet breakfast was fine- the food rotated. The place was quiet and clean. I would stay again.

Out of the way but great views

This was a nice hotel with excellent food and a great view. It has two drawbacks: (1) It isn't close to anything other than the Amador Causeway (and the Gehry Biomuseum after it opens); and (2) The rooms are incredibly noisy due to both the hard tile floors and a sort of linkage through the AC systems. When someone closes the door to another room, it just echoes through the hall. If you have a car, don't mind taking a taxi, or are part of a tour, it's good.
