The manager of this hotel was beyond rude and not at all hospitable. He made my friend and I so uncofortable that we decided not to stay. When I spoke up he got defensive and even more rude. We decided not to stay because of how we were treated.
Bed was very comfortable. Historic hotel from 1910 very near King St. Station. No elevators. No in-room bathroom. No hair dryer. There was something wrong with reservations of all three people checking in at the same time as me.
The room was better then I expected. And it was really convenient to the Amtrak station. There is plenty of places around that have good food. It was an interesting glimpse in to what hotels were like at the turn of the 20th century. There is a shower. After a long day the front stairs can be a bit much but it is what it is. The continental breakfast is included which is nice but there is ONE person doing everything in the morning so waits for anything can be a long wait in line.
I loved the History. This is not a spa stay, its an experience stay. We very much enjoyed staying in a hotel that was like going back in time to our grandparents era. It was also in walking distance of everything. Very quiet and peaceful for the area. They weren't thrilled about taking cash but they DID accommodate. I personally like to use cash when I travel. There was only one outlet in the room but not that big of a deal considering we were there to sight see not sit on our electronics.
The restaurant Please! Improve the wifi! It not working!
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I wasn't thrilled about the shared bathroom for the entire floor, but the hotel had few enough guests during my stay that it was bearable.
locaton everything else
The tea house next door was nice and well kept. It's fun to stay in a historic building and be close to many things. There was trash under our bed from pervious guests. The red felt fabric around the bath tub was confusing and the shower was what I would expect to see in a prison.we waited in a empty hall for 10 min. For someone to finally show up to check us in.
Nothing The owner of the hotel was extremely rude to the guests and ourselves. I have never experienced that level of disrespect from a hotel owner/manager in my life. I would never book from them again and they should be dropped from the site.
Character, unique decor, decent location, woman I dealt with upon checking in was warm and professional Price not reflective of quality, mattresses felt cheap, check in delayed due to slow credit card machine, my couch has more personality than younger guy we first interacted with, continental breakfast not open On time and I had a flight to catch so left
The staff was wonderful. My wife and I learned so much about the history of the Panama Hotel. We are referring our traveling family and friends to have their own experience.
Just the location Nothing it's really old and it's not what's it looks like in the pictures And it smells bad
