Great location on quiet street
Reviewed 11 hours ago

The Waldorf Astoria Panamá is well situated, as it is within walking distance to the financial banking center, Iglesia del Carmen, parque Urracá and some restaurants. Easy to get to places with Uber.
Staff was friendly and provided excellent customer service.
The mini-suite was spacious with many toiletries that US hotels no longer provide unless one asks. However, no daily refill of toiletries was provided.
Room was spotless. My only suggestion is to add a non-skid mat to the spacious shower since the tiles were very slippery.
The lobby bar staff was friendly and attentive. Breakfast buffet had a great selection of breads, sweet rolls, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruits, cheeses, fresh omelets/fried eggs station, fresh fruit juices, everything! The staff was also very attentive.
Did not have time to use the pool or the pool bar.

Not Up to the Waldorf Astoria Brand
Reviewed 3 days ago

At the reception desk there is a sign that says their goal is 9 to 10. Unfortunately, it wasn’t close. Doormen and reception staff were helpful and accommodating but the rooms are not maintained making it a less than luxurious experience that I associate with the brand. Breakfast was abundant but uninspiring. They have some work to do all around.

Great hotel in a great location!

The Waldorf-Astoria Panama is a wonderful luxury respite in busy Panama City. It's on a quiet street conveniently located in downtown. The decor is beautiful, the staff is professional, friendly and helpful and the outdoor pool is heavenly.

Good option for high end but with room for improvement
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Selected this property as part of American Express’ “Fine Hotels” program, and was our first time staying at a Waldorf Hotel. Overall a good experience however as a 5-star property, there is some room for improvement.

• Pros - spacious room & bathroom, great bathtub, comfortable bed, Salvatore Ferragamo body products, large modern fitness center, welcoming pool bar, knowledgeable concierge, friendly front desk staff

• Cons - very limited room service options, qualify and availability of spa treatment, small pool area, daily replenishment of room amenities by room service

All in all, I’d consider staying again, barring improvement in some of these areas.
