American Trade Hotel
The stylish, first class boutique American Trade Hotel, occupying a former bank, brings art deco to Panama City's colonial heart, the Casco Viejo.
This grand, first class hotel is in the old quarter of Panama City It narrates a long colonial history dating back to 1917 when the colonial-style edifice was built at as a department store and bank with apartments on the upper floors. It was opened as a hotel in 2013.
With a nod to its aspired ‘boutique’ status, the property is stylishly art deco. While the exterior is classically ornate, once inside you will be impressed with the lean, bright and sparing contemporary furnishings and décor. The ceilings are very high with huge windows: light streams through from the front and the rear restaurant. You can see your reflection in the polished wooden floors. There's an outdoor terrace which overlooks Plaza Herrera, formerly famed for its bullfights, with views out over Panama City.
All the eight guest rooms are decorated with dark wood furniture and very large, luxurious stone bathrooms. There is also an outdoor swimming pool.
The property and surrounding area are steeped in local heritage and culture, while the hotel has been thoroughly outfitted with the contemporary conveniences and modern luxuries The property and surrounding area are steeped in local heritage and culture, while the hotel has been thoroughly outfitted with the contemporary conveniences and modern luxuries.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
"It's the best hotel I've ever stayed at - bar none. I'd already stayed there before, so I knew about the quality. The only tiny criticism was that in the highly rated Bourgogne restaurant when my wife asked for a glass of red wine she was served one which we discovered later cost £30. It would have been nice to have been offered a choice between this and a cheaper glass!"AW, Haywards Heath
