The Westin Panama

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Like all Westin hotels, this place has extremely comfortable beds. The location is ideal for business because there are many multi-national companies in the area. Also there are some shops and restaurants within walking distance. Only minus is that Costa del Este is a bit removed from the heart of Panama City so you will not see the true panama from here.

What everybody should call a GREAT HOTEL. From the staff (specially Adriana and Sebastian from the Concierge Desk), to all the staff at the check-in counters, the staff at restaurant and the executive lounge. Special mention to Carlos Marin (chofer that works for the hotel) and Luz (from the roof-top Sensory Spa), i have no words to thanks enough all these people. This is my 4th time at this hotel and its services are always going up. Being a hotel mainly for business, it has something special that make you feel at home when abroad.

We debated whether to book the airport hotel or to get a bit closer in to the city without being in the main part of the city. This turned out to be a perfect option. It's a quick 15 minute uber ride. The costs was less than $10 to get there. The check in was super friendly and efficient. They were waiting for us and within a couple of minutes we were checked into our suite. The business suite had two rooms that weren't huge but roomy enough for us. The usual heavenly bed gave us a good sleep. The executive lounge is very nice on the 18th floor but there was no one there. The galls working there spoke no English which was fine but a bit surprising given the clientele one would expect to find in the lounge. The food the usual fare. We spent the next morning relaxing at the pool on the 18th floor. A bit cold for me - wish they could heat it. But a nice place to relax nevertheless. The hotel is located a block from the pathway along the ocean and we had a good long walk. It was very pleasant. The neighbourhood is Costa Del Este which is very upscale and has tons of restaurants and services. We walked out for dinner and felt very safe. I would stay here again - maybe even for longer.

I will definitely go back to this hotel whenever I need to go to Panama City, it is extremely well located, my office was so near I went walking and its just about 15 minutes away from the airport and from the city and shopping malls! It is also surrounded by all kinds of restaurants and there is also a Mall almost opening! The service was excellent and very personalized, Jorge, Daniel, Eduardo and Liz from reception were always very kind and responsive to my needs!

Very well kept hotel, with an excellent trained team. The quality/price balance is good and the rooms are pleasant. One special thing a great pool and pool area on the top of the hotel. Really worth to spend several hours there.

I stayed here on two separate nights in one week as connecting flights to Bocas necessitated me to do so. I wanted a place where I didn't have to leave the building and I was most impressed with the rooms, they are true 5*. The food service, timing, freshness and staff friendliness were also well noted. I was super happy with this place, it is safe and secure....highly recommended!

The people there very friendly very besuty in there nice resturant the hotel very big go to walk go the gym great go to the travel go to see the city go the small grest for go the shopping very good food thete

Hotel is located in one of the most exclusive towns of Panama surrounded by good restaurants and a beautiful boulevard. Rooms clean and in excellent conditions. Good service, but restaurant a little bit overpriced for its quality.

I was there for three weeks, and my overall impression was favorable. I was not impressed however when we requested to stay in the Executive Lounge for a couple of hours. One of our colleagues had Platinum status, so they let us stay, but it was such an uncomfortable situation because they gave our team such a hard time. Eric at the front desk is AWESOME - always greeting everyone with a pleasant smile and going out of his way to accommodate guests. Jonathan in the restaurant also FANTASTIC. I drink coffee black or with skim milk, and he would steam my milk for my coffee every morning.

Julieth at the front desk was very helpful in suggesting places to go tour and eat! The experience would not have been the same without her! The Westin catered to all of my needs and in September I was able to book multiple days the same day I needed I stay!!! They have a great pool and breakfast!!!
