I spent a week at the Holiday Inn Panama Canal. It was relaxing and fun. the rooms are quite clean and functional. breakfast and Lunch was exquisite. I did have dinner because I went out gallivanting. The staff are quit nice and friendly even though there was a language barrier. I am totally English. But the experience of the Holiday Inn in Panama City - Panama Canal was awesome. Take a trip and see for your self.
ACCOMODATIONS were nice and comfy. Pool was beautiful. Only complaint was I booked 8 months in advance and requested a Canal room with 2 beds for 4 people. When I arrived they had me in a 1 bed poolview room. They then demanded money for the extra guests despite my prepayment of room, and confirming with the hotel twice to confirm my accomodations request.Holiday inn was quick to resolve the issue once I returned home, but what a hassle and headache
The City of Knowledge, formerly Fort Clayton, was where I lived and worked while serving in the military from 78-80. Being able to stay at a Holiday Inn on the same location was important to me. Language was an issue with front desk staff. They were all friendly but a lot of information was lost in translation. Saying they understand and will do things, is not the same as actually doing them. It was frustrating to say the least. There are a lot of students in the area, many of which hang out in the lobby and use the hotel's internet. They use it to Skype their families and professors and to stream movies. This resulted in internet speed that was unsatifsfactorily slow.
We spent a week at the Holiday Inn. Booked it for the canal view but when got there it was a tree view with minimal canal view though we paid extra for the view. Did have a good view each day from the dining room at breakfast. The shuttle to airport only goes once a day and not close to our flight times. This hotel is a 45 minute taxi ride for $50 one way for 4 of us.The taxis are great even with our little spanish. The front desk was great with helping get taxis. Breakfast is fabulous. Our in room safe wouldn't open the day before we left but maintaince got it open for our passports.
