The Waldorf was nicely located in the heart of the business district but did not have an overly business hotel feel to it. There were plenty of vacationers. The decor is modern. The staff was friendly although not overly attentive. The pool area on a high floor was a delight. The standard rooms are on the small side but not tiny. I thought the breakfast buffet was a bit limited in choices but who goes to a hotel for the breakfast buffet. It was a nice, enjoyable place to visit in Panama City and recommended for anyone looking for a good centrally located hotel.

Hotel's Favourite
Our first trip to Panama City and decided to stay here because of the reputation. We were not disappointed. Everyone went out of their way to provide exceptional service. Each encounter was what customer service is all about. From the driver who picked us up at the airport, to the front desk staff and bar staff, all were exceptional and most were bilingual.

The hotel doesn't feel very big. It is located in a quiet street with great location. The lobby is simple but elegant. Since it's not a very big hotel, it feels cozy. There were however some major issues during our stay, which left somewhat of a sour taste for our stay. It started during check in. It took 20 minutes to check in a room, way too slow when you have to check in 3 rooms and there is only one person doing the process. We had booked 3 Jr. Suites and when they gave us different room types, I knew something was wrong. I ckecked out the room and when back because they gave us a Deluxe instead of the Jr. Suite. Then Karla went on trying to explain that any room with ocean view and a bathtub was considered a Jr. Suite. I said that it wasn't what we had reserved and the "ocean view" was a joke since there were building in front of the hotel, and you could see very little of the ocean. Karla informed us that the supervisor was in a meeting and it would take a while, so we had to wait. If you pride yourself on customer service, this was the worst example of it. We had to wait because of a meeting, seriously!!!! (During checkout, Hector informed us that there were only 10 Jr. Suites in the whole hotel, so it became obvious that Karla was lying to us. The Jr. Suites are the "07" on the floor). After we waited a while, my wife started explaining the situation to Lille, the Concierge. Somehow she was able to find us a real Jr. Suite on the same floor of our original room, so we switched to room 1807. The room was clean and very good, with a few observations: - There are no sports channels on the TV. - There could be a small drawer bedside and not just a table. It's nice to put your things aways and leave it all organized. - There should be a door for the toilet. With the current layout, it is literally installing a door, which adds tons of privacy for the space. - Water pressure for the shower could be better. - Faucet to fill bath up is way too small. It took forever to fill the bathtub. On our first day we asked them to fix a couple of things that weren't working in the room (our stay was for 5 days), and by our checkout time nothing had been done. We had reserved the rooms with the breakfast package. I highly recommend this because it is way cheaper than paying each time. Our daughter was with us and they charged her US$ 15,00 for breakfast. The breakfast package for the room was for 2 people, so they charged her breakfast. I thought this was on the "cheap" side since a kid doesn't eat that much, and for the rates being charges , it felt "bush league". We had booked 3 Jr. Suites and they felt the need to charge a kid for breakfast, what can you do?! When you book a room at the Waldorf Astoria, you expect a certain level of service, and with this experience, it didn't meet the standard. Lille was great. She helped us with the room doing what Karla obviously could have done but refused to do it. Then helped us set up the tour and a couple other things. Every time we saw her she was always helpful. She is a great asset to the hotel. Karla on the other hand .... not sure if it's a lack of training or what, but it's unacceptable to take forever to check in a guest and then try to give them something less, and seemingly not care about it. I would probably try to stay at this hotel again, but would take a harder look at other places first. It's not cool when you feel like people are trying to take advantage of you, and that's how I felt.
