It’s not only the Man With The Yellow Hat (Curious George) who visits the South American city, but business folks and tourists as well. Given its’ strategic location between North and South America and ease of access from around the world, it makes sense.
Seizing the opportunity, the Starwood Groups “W” chain is opening their NINTH iconic brand hotel, slated to open in early 2016. W Panama will be part of the 50-floor Evolution Tower, a mixed-use building, including office space, located in the heart of the city’s financial district. The location is ideal, located on Calle 50, just steps away from Uruguay Street, which is known as the Zona Rosa of Panama and is bustling with stylish restaurants and nightclubs.
Featuring 203 stylish guest rooms, with 24 suites, three Wow suites, and one Extreme Wow suite (the W brand’s take on the Presidential Suite), two signature restaurants, the W Living Room experience (reinterpretation of the traditional hotel lobby), destination nightclub, WET pool deck, spa and 8,400 square foot WORKOUT fitness facility, it’s bound to be popular.
The impressive tower will offer views of the city and, on high floors, the bay and Panama Canal.
What a good excuse to buy yourself a real “Panama” hat though hopefully not in bright yellow.
