In today’s competitive world, everyone needs a way to stand out from the crowd. Luxury hotels certainly are not any different and are always looking for ways to outshine their competitors and attract more visitors. We understand that our travelers look for the best of the best, and we would like to introduce you to our blog series, Hotels with an Edge. We’ll be highlighting and featuring a few hotels we feel truly stand out and offer their guests more than is expected. Be sure to check in with us to explore various hotels that deserve recognition for their supreme levels of luxury.
Our third featured hotel is the tallest and largest building in Latin America, the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower Panama. This luxurious property rises seventy stories above Panama Bay along Punta Pacifica’s beautiful peninsula. The hotel’s sleek design evokes an elegant sail and it simply redefines luxury. It’s centrally located near shops, nightlife, and the financial district making this a wonderful option in Panama City. The 13th floor deck features 2 incredible pools with waterfront dining options and a 3-story sky lobby nearby. Every aspect of the hotel has been designed to showcase spectacular ocean views, and each of its 369 rooms and suites are elegantly furnished in a modern and tasteful style.

Look out Panama! When the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel & Tower Panama opens on July 6, 2012, it will be the largest hotel in all of Latin America. And what a hotel it is! Soaring 70 storeys above the Punta Pacifica peninsula, the sail-shaped building (not unlike the Burj al Arab in Dubai) will feature 369 rooms (including 47 suites), a floor of elite boutiques and shops, multiple restaurants, a pool deck overlooking the Pacific Ocean. (Opening later in the year: a 10,000-square-foot spa, a casino and (ooh la la!) a private beach club on nearby Isla Viveros.) Plan a trip to Panama for the resort's opening season and score introductory rates starting at $279. The city's cultural calendar is packed with fun events like Fashion Week (July 14-16), Fiesta Patronal de Santiago Apostol (July 25), Festival Manito de Ocú (August 11-14) and the International Fair of Books (August 24- 28).
