American Trade Hotel offers families an atmospheric old-world Latin experience in the heart of Panama City’s historic Casco Viejo. Housed in a restored landmark building, American Trade guests are immersed in a fresh version of the original design — a highlight is the incredible tile floors — throughout public and private spaces. It has an air of cozy simplicity with massive windows overlooking the colorful UNESCO-protected neighborhood surrounding the property on all sides. There are no shortage of wonderful lounge spaces from the airy coffee bar to the rooftop pool deck with fantastic city views. Families can choose between spacious double room and suites; a few of the rooms connect. The service is exceptional and the concierge desk happily organizes custom excursions around the city.
