IHG opens Crowne Plaza Panama Airport Hotel
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the opening of the Crowne Plaza Panama Airport hotel. Situated close to Tocumen International Airport in Panama, the new-build hotel has 144 guest rooms and an outdoor swimming pool. It is the hotel chain's first hotel to be built in Latin America, less than one mile from an airport.
Just very recently, earlier this month, the Crowne Plaza Panama Airport hotel opened to guests after a US $20 million investment by the owner and operator, Bern Hotels & Resorts.
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) announced the opening of the newly built hotel near Tocumen International Airport (PTY) in Panama, which has 144 guest rooms and is the first branded hotel in Latin America to be built less than one mile from an airport.
Guests staying at the new property will be able to enjoy facilities and service including an airport shuttle, an outside swimming pool, a 24-hour fitness centre, business centres, and free wireless internet.
Gerardo Murray, the Regional IHG Vice President, Distribution and Commercial Marketing for Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean, said of the new opening;
"Bern Hotels & Resorts owns four existing IHG properties in Panama, including the InterContinental® Miramar Panama, InterContinental Playa Bonita Resort & Spa, Crowne Plaza Panama and Holiday Inn® Panama Canal hotels, and we are thrilled to open a fifth hotel with this long-standing franchisee.
“Bern has an outstanding reputation for delivering quality projects in stellar locations, and we believe that the Crowne Plaza Panama Airport property will be a great success."
Guests at the new Crowne Plaza Panama Airport hotel can take advantage of the brand’s “Always On” enhancements that focus on connectivity and wellness, while the Energy Essentials Wellness Station provides healthy snacks and beverages.
After a busy day of sightseeing in Panama City, guests can choose from two onsite restaurants to dine in - The Jetstream and The Hub Bar & Grill – before relaxing in their rooms with the help of the brand’s Sleep Advantage® programme.
Panama City is the capital of the country Panama in Central America and it is considered to be one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the region. The city boasts a skyline similar to Dubai with tall glass and steel towers, but the historic district of "Casco Viejo" is a blend of Old Havana and the French Quarter in New Orleans, and is popular with holidaymakers due to its charming, winding cobbled streets and historic buildings.
