September 29, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Le Meridien PanamaRight in the beating heart of Panama City and all its vibrant nightlife, the new Le Meridien is the first hotel in Central America for the brand. Perched on the edge of the Bay of Panama overlooking the city's old and new quarters, the hotel was designed by Panamanian architect Mallol Ignacio and features a black-granite lobby that's a design dream-- "an overturned glass reflecting vibrant colors." Facilities include a Sensory Spa by Clarins, Latitudes restaurant, fitness center, outdoor pool overlooking the bay, meeting rooms, and ample event space. The 111 guestrooms, including 29 suites, channel a contemporary aesthetic.
