The W Hotel has just made its big debut in Panama City and is the first location of the brand to open in Central America. 

The hotel is centrally located on Calle 50, in the heart of Panama City’s business district. Just steps away from the hotel is the luxurious SOHO Mall, with plenty of shopping & restaurant options, as well as Calle Uruguay, which is undergoing a major overhaul to once again become an entertainment district in the city.

“Panama City is one of the most vibrant and dynamic cities in Central America, a fusion of new and old, east and west, business and hedonism. Like our guests, W Hotels seeks destinations that are inspiring and multi-dimensional so Panama City is a natural fit,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. W Panama embodies the spirit of Panama, showing off the style and energy of this diverse global hub with an intricate design that pays homage to both the history of the region and its bright future.” (Marriott News)

Vibrant, local artwork is an integrated part of the W Hotel in Panama City and this is something that will capture your eye, even from the outside as the iconic W logo is painted with graffiti by Diablos Rojos inspired artist, Oscar Melgar. The hotel also features shipping containers into the design as a nod to Panama’s main industry.

Guests and visitors at the W Panama can cool off at the 6,835-square-foot WET Deck (pool deck), enjoy a craft cocktail at Cargo inside one of the shipping containers, or mingle in the Living Room. There are also two on-site restaurants that feature locally inspired cuisine and a fitness center and spa.

Rooms at W Panama start at $189/night and feature stunning city views. You can be one of the first to stay at this stunning hotel by BOOKING HERE.

Experience Panama


I'm from Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Panama in 2011 to finish a degree in International Business. I enjoyed the hot tropical weather and the lifestyle on offer in Panama City so much that I decided to make it my permanent residence.
