Traffic noise and unappealing highway views in some rooms
Room decor is a bit bland for an upscale property
This 331-room upscale chain hotel of the Wyndham
brand is the only hotel located at the Albrook Mall, the largest shopping
center in Latin America. Despite this location, the hotel stands alone as a
great option for corporate travel due to its 30,000-square-feet of event and meeting
room space. It has a nice rooftop pool and modern rooms -- although their decor is a bit generic for this level of luxury. It’s a good choice for business travelers or those
interested in the mall -- but otherwise, comparable hotels can be found in the
city center, where all the real action is.
Shiny and new, this cosmopolitan hotel is a center for business and commerce
The Wyndham Panama Albrook Mall is a large, upscale hotel, with
331 rooms and suites. The property is directly
located at the Albrook Mall -- a gigantic shopping mall over a mile long that holds the title of the largest shopping center in Latin America. As you
might imagine, many guests interested in shopping might find their way to the
Wyndham Albrook Mall -- although corporate travel actually makes up most of the
hotel’s business. The property is also the site of a large convention center and
event space, featuring 23 meeting rooms and two ballrooms for a total of 30,000
square feet of space.
As it’s close to the Albrook Airport, this property also
functions as an airport hotel, with a bustling atmosphere that sees many
travelers passing through at all hours of the day and night. The spacious, busy
lobby features soaring ceilings and contemporary decor with nice touches like
vintages suitcases and decorative chandeliers. There’s a large passageway
through the lobby that lead right into the mall, lined with blue neon lights.
The Wyndham is modern and sleek, offering convenience, comfort, and
various amenities -- but as it’s on par with several comparable hotels in the
center of Panama City; the location at Albrook Mall is either its strength or
its weakness, depending on what you’re looking for.
Located in the massive Albrook Mall, close to sights but away from the city center
The Wyndham Panama Albrook Mall is situated at the popular
shopping center which is known to be the largest mall in Latin America. It is
located about a 15-minute drive outside of the center of Panama City, and every
taxi driver can get you there because they will know the mall, even if they don’t know the hotel by name.
Besides a plethora of shopping options, the Albrook Mall offers several food
courts, bowling, and a movie theater. There
is a very busy highway located directly outside the hotel entrance, so the
views and the traffic noise is a drawback. A major bus station and the small
Albrook Airport are close by, but Panama City’s major international airport,
Tocumen, is about 35 minutes away. The popular old district of Casco Viejo is
only about 10 minutes away by taxi, as is the Panama Canal -- making this a
decent spot for sightseeing.
Sleek and modern rooms and suites, though views are uninspiring
The 331 rooms at the Wyndham are all new and modern, with clean
lines and a contemporary style. Modern colors in gray, silver, and beige are
complimented by the dark wood furniture and dark red accent colors.
Expect all the conveniences of a business hotel room, such as iPod
docks, flat-screen TVs, several ports that connect to the TV for different
devices, and high-speed Wi-Fi. Every room includes a mini-fridge and coffee and
tea facilities. The bathrooms are sleek with clean lines and high contrast
color, in black, white, and silver, with contemporary tile and spacious
glass-walled showers. The rooms feature large picture windows, though the views of the airport, shopping mall, parking lot, and highway are not the most
There are Suites and Master Suites available, which include separate living rooms, dining room areas with microwaves, and
extra luxurious bathrooms with either soaking tubs or whirlpools. The Wyndham even
offers a Fitness Room, which offers sporty guests the option of having an elliptical
machine right in the room.
A chic rooftop pool, two restaurants and a lounge, and a formidable convention center
One highlight of the property is the sleek, modern infinity
pool on the rooftop. It features a shallow area where lounge
chairs can sit in the water just a few inches deep -- creating a very sexy
looking atmosphere. The rooftop location offers great views of the skyline of
Panama City in the distance -- although the area immediately surrounding the
hotel isn’t very nice, and there is traffic noise from the highway close by.
Near the pool, a nice sundeck lounge area offers cushioned couches and
umbrellas for shade. Also on the rooftop level, there’s a nice, bright fitness
room with several new machines, most of which have their own TV screens.
Next to the pool is the Rooftop Sunset Bar, one of two bars
in the hotel, which is open in the evenings for happy hour specials and poolside drinks.
The main bar and lounge of the hotel is The Gastro Bar, located off to one
side of the lobby. It employs a chic, modern atmosphere with both casual
seating on couches, bar seating and tables, and a large TV for sports games. Canal Bistro is the main restaurant, serving
breakfast and lunch buffet style and dinner a la carte. The lunch buffet is unexpectedly
excellent, with many options including a fresh salad bar, pastas,
and special items like a make-your-own ceviche bar and lovely small desserts. Café
Met, just outside the hotel facing into the mall, has great coffee and exotic
tea selections, sandwiches, salads, and lovely cakes and desserts.
There is a boarding pass printing center near the front desk
in the lobby, providing easy access for travelers heading to the airport. There
is also a small business center with a handful of computers nearby. A small
pantry and gift shop in the lobby sells snacks, drinks, beer, T-shirts, ice
cream, and other basic items.
The second floor of the hotel hosts the convention center
space. A total of 23 meeting rooms of all sizes, including two grand ballrooms,
makes this a formidable business hotel for Panama City, even though it is
outside of the central city’s financial and business district.
