The American Trade Hotel in Casco Viejo (Panama’s old city) is one of the most coveted pieces of real estate in the country. Set in the historic center of the city, this 101-year-old restored building has hosted some of the country’s most distinguished guests, and continues to set the bar as high as it gets when it comes to boutique luxury. The hotel has kept its original style, but has been modernized to provide many of the creature comforts one would expect from brand new luxury accommodations. From its world-class restaurant, to a gourmet boutique coffee shop, to its rooftop pool and French-doored balconies overlooking the plaza, no detail is spared here. This is truly Casco Viejo’s best, most refined place to stay, for work or play.

A big part of what makes the American Trade Hotel so great is also its location. Casco Viejo is the center of Panama City’s art, culture, music, food, and nightlife scenes, as well as being home to Panama’s Presidential Palace and seat of government. The hotel is located on a full city block in Plaza Herrera, where it’s surrounded by craft cocktail bars, a world-famous Jazz Club (Danilo’s), 5-star restaurants, and steps from some of the country’s most famous colonial churches and ruins. As a guest, you can discover all that old Panama has to offer within steps of the front door, or relax in your guest room, taking in the sweet tropical breeze from the balcony. Whatever your pleasure, you’ll find it at the American Trade Hotel

This island is classically Panamanian, serving as a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the capital for its residents, for many years. It’s got beaches, a small town, and is incredibly easy to get to by boat or ferry.
