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...

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...

We felt safe and staff was very helpful. Close to the Miraflores Locks and we could watch the ships from our window. Nice to cool off in the pool after a day seeing the sights. There was a great breakfast included and we ate dinner here as well and the meal was great and reasonably priced.

The hotel is well located near the Panama Canal with great view of ships and vessels passing by the Canal. Nice service, good food, and well clean room. Only I would say that would be excelent with a bigger pool.

Our group of six were in Panama for a 2 day whirlwind trip of the canal and some sightseeing. We choose the Holiday Inn for its superior location to the Mirafloras Locks. The hotel was undergoing small repairs (we didn't ever see anyone actually working on the wall repairs - only the plaster spots on the walls in the hallways)...

A great place to stay, perfect rooms and the view of the Panama canal and approach to Miraflores locks is spectacular, especially from the higher floored rooms. However: BEWARE, I booked and paid for two rooms which included breakfast. Upon arrival they knew nothing about breakfast and charged for this. When questioned about the charge, the manager appears and suddenly...
