Marriott International has announced the opening of its first Residence Inn in Panama City. Located in the Pacific Center Punta Paitilla neighborhood, the new Residence Inn Panama City has 144 suites ranging from 440 square feet to 840 square feet, offering travelers a new option in the longer stays segment. 

“Panama City is a key market for longer-stay travel,” Carlos Roque, the hotel’s general manager, said in a written statement, noting that all of the property’s suites have separate living, working and sleeping zones, as well as a fully functional kitchen. 

Other amenities include complimentary grocery delivery service and daily hot breakfast, a 24-hour market, a common laundry room, and a fitness facility. In the hotel’s Sky Lobby, a full-service restaurant and lounge serves up local cuisine complemented by regionally infused craft cocktails. The lobby is also home to a map of Panama created by architect Maritza Lantry using embossed wooden planks. The restaurant has vintage flooring, similar to those found in the nearby neighborhood of Casco Viejo, integrating silver touches to represent Panama’s metropolitan side.
