The Executive Hotel
The Executive Hotel is located in the heart of Panama City’s financial district. Recently the hotel was completely refurbished, while keeping some of its old charm. El Ejecutivo Café is the hotel’s restaurant located in the lobby floor. Panamanians have gone to this place for decades because it serves good food and is open 24 hours (on weekends). A round table with wicker chairs painted in blue are memories of the original decor. Diners receive huge portions. The breakfast menu is extensive with local Panamanian options like steak with onions or tortillas, or international options such as French toast or Belgian waffles. Many come looking for the “El Dirty Harry” Club Sandwich or its famous burgers.
Guest can stay in one of 149 rooms which are decorated in contemporary fashion with beige tones highlighted with turquoise details. There are four room types: standard king, standard double, double deluxe and suite. They are all quite spacious and have bathrooms decorated with stone finishings. WiFi is complimentary, some rooms have balconies as well. Other amenities include work stations, mini-bar, bottled water, flat screen TV with cable, safety deposit box, and air conditioning.
On the rooftop of The Executive Hotel is an open air pool with lounge chairs surrounded by palm trees which give it a tropical feel. A fully equipped gym allow guests to maintain their routines. Latin Finance Magazine named this hotel as one of the 100 best hotels for business travelers. They have three rooms for small events and meetings, as well as a business center.
