Opened in 2013, the property is the first Waldorf Astoria in Latin America. In the grand scale of Panama City hotels, the Waldorf has a prime location in the city’s center—a short walk to the pedestrian-friendly coastal causeway (Cinta Costera) and neighboring the city’s nightlife and business districts on Calle Uruguay.
The property even has its own entertainment options with its lobby bar, which occasionally invites in musicians for live performances. Look no further than the Waldorf’s own restaurants for an exciting meal. BRIO Brassie has a not-to-be-missed weekend brunch complete with a martini mixer-shaken salad station. The Peacock Alley lobby bar offers signature cocktails along with bites like ceviche, salads and sushi.
One of the hotel’s most striking features is an open-air floor, which showcases the outdoor pool and patio bar. The Bungalow terrace is another opportunity to grab drinks and ceviche (and you really should as ceviche is one of the city’s most popular menu items). Whether you’re there for a bite or swim, the mid-level patio provides a cool panoramic view of the city center.
