Rated 5 out of 5 by MichaelFromSeattle Excellent!
My job has taken me all over the World and I can honestly say that the Sheraton in Panama City, Panama has the best staff in the business. From the very helpful gentlemen who greet you at the door when you arrive (some with more than 30 years experience at this location), to the smiling staff at the front desk, to the genuine kindness of the team in the Club room on the 15th floor, I've never had a better experience at a hotel. This hotel should serve as a model for all SPG properties because their customer service is excellent. I'd especially recommend this hotel to English-speaking travelers because most of the customer-facing staff are as proficient in English as native speakers.

This hotel is well located on a major thoroughfare in the San Francisco district and is across the street from the Panama Convention Center. The airport is only 15 minutes by taxi.
I had a genuinely warm greeting on arrival. The staff offered a two-room, two-full-bath corner suite upgrade without being prompted. Each room had a giant flat-screen TV with dozens of channels in Spanish and English. There was a welcome gift of cheese, fruit and nuts. I slept very well in the king-size bed. The room overlooked the tennis courts and pool as well as providing a good view of the Pacific ocean and the Panama City skyline.
The club lounge is large and has a good selection of appetizers, mini sandwiches, and deserts. My only disappointment with the lounge was that the attendant never checked to see if the guests needed anything. I would not have known there was wine to go with the ceviche unless I got up to ask.
The hotel gym is not a fitness center. It is a full-fledged commercial health club with a huge assortment of equipment and machines for any workout routine.
When I return to Panama City I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

I have stayed at this hotel on at least four occasions and am always happy that I booked with Sheraton of Panama. The facilities are fantastic, the food is good, and the coffee shop (Las Hadas) is open 24 hours. My only complaint is that the parking is very expensive, considering it is Panama not the United States. I would definitely stay here again, great service, great people, great hotel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by starsim worst SPG experience
My experience with this hotel is not great. Starting with bad service in the pool. The quality of the room is just average. Room is small and outdated. The worst has to be with the concierge. The concierge recommended a tour which is double the price of what they said. The tour arranged by concierge has no association to the hotel. The recommendation from concierge cannot be trusted. I would avoid this hotel. Try other SPG in Panama City.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barbara83 Great bed but no wifi in rooms
Nice accomodations with very friendly helpful staff but we were disappointed that there was no wifi in our room. We had to go down our eight flights to the business center to use wifi then we were limited to just 3 hours per day.

Room was small and bathroom smaller. Reservation was difficult to make and confused when I arrived. Also an issue with the valet car service.
