Panama City, Panama
Waldorf Astoria Panama
Tower of Luxury
What it is
A skyscraping 137-room hotel with a locally inspired spa, three buzzing restaurants and a sceney rooftop pool and jacuzzi that glows after dark.
What it isn't
Pet friendly. But who hauls their pooch to Panama?
What we think
Glamour is spelled with a capital G at Waldorf Astoria Panama, where luxurious touches are everywhere you look: whether you want to order room service to your suite or ask the concierge to nab you a last-minute reservation at the hottest boîte in town. Guest rooms are nothing less than sumptuous, thanks to a calming palette of neutrals and plush amenities like down comforters on the Waldorf Astoria Signature mattress, Nespresso machines, 300 thread count sheets, and a spa-like bathroom with dual sinks and toiletries by Salvatore Ferragamo. To feel like you actually live here, book one of their “Condo” suites; they start at 818 square feet and have full kitchens and separate living rooms (plus—a major perk for anyone traveling with a spouse, kids, or long-lost friends from college—a second bathroom).
You're here because
The spa is a quiet retreat that has perfected simple joys, including vitamin-boosted body wraps.
Top shelf rum tastes even sweeter in the hotel’s cocktail bar, Peacock Alley, especially from your brass perch by the mirrored bar—with the city lights twinkling beyond.
