Crowne Plaza Panama: Have Fun in the Heart of It All
A hum of activity surrounds the Crowne Plaza Panama Hotel in Panama City.
Whether you're looking for great restaurants and rare antiques or casinos and
craft markets, the makings of a fantastic vacation are within easy reach of
this full-service, upscale hotel. Before heading out to see the sights, take a
refreshing dip in the rooftop pool, which enjoys a commanding view of the
For fine dining you need not venture any farther than the hotel lobby, where
La Galeria offers international cuisine, as well as Panamanian favorites. The
pineapple chicken salad is fruity and delicious, but it's also a visual
treat--served in half of a hollowed-out pineapple. Top things off with a
full-bodied Balboa beer at Memories Sports Bar in the lobby. And don't worry
about the calories--the nicely equipped fitness center never closes!
From the Crowne Plaza Hotel, the Panama Canal's Miraflores Locks are only about
five miles away. Feel what it's like to go through the locks when you try the
navigation simulator at the visitors' center. Three other exhibits cover canal
history, environmental issues and world trade. For a beside-the-scenes look at
the canal, take the hour-long rail trip across the isthmus. Keep your camera
ready; the Panama Canal Railway parallels the canal through the rainforest and
across narrow causeways.
After a full day, you'll be happy to head back to your Deluxe Room to enjoy
the benefits of valet service and your own kitchenette--perfect for quick
snacks while you catch up on e-mail or to map out tomorrow's adventure. If
you're a history buff, or just like seeing old stuff, leave the comforts of the
room to check out Panama La Vieja. Only three miles from the hotel, the site is
the desolate location of the original Spanish city, destroyed by Captain Henry
Morgan. Just to the south is Iglesia del Carmen, widely considered one of the
most beautiful churches in the country. Built in the mid-20th century, it is
the only example of Gothic-inspired architecture in Panama.
