American Trade Hotel, Casco Viejo

It was always a landmark building. It symbolised its setting in as much as it stands at the cultural and ecological crossroads of the Americas. Today, after its impressive refurbishment, it is more splendid and cosmopolitan than ever. Make sure the American Trade Hotel and Hall is on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Panama and you will – almost literally – have one foot in the old Casco Viejo quarter of Panama and the other in the city’s vivacious modern heart.

You’ll also be staying in a designer boutique hotel with a gracious square at its front. A neo-colonial style, white building with interesting balconies, arched windows and impressive views over both the tiled roofs of the city and the twinkling Gulf of Panama.
