W Panama, the first W Hotel in Central America is now open. 

Located in Panama City, the new hotel towers above the heart of the business district within the ultra-modern, 50-floor Evolution Tower on Calle 50. 

The new property offers 1,950sqm of versatile meeting and event space across six meeting rooms. The eye-catching Great Room is a great setting for grand events, displaying the stunning cityscape through floor-to-ceiling windows.

"Panama City is one of the most vibrant and dynamic cities in Central America, a fusion of new and old, east and west, business and hedonism," said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, W Hotels Worldwide. "Like our guests, W Hotels seeks destinations that are inspiring and multi-dimensional so Panama City is a natural fit."

There are 203 guest rooms including 28 gorgeous suites, many featuring sweeping views of the nearby bay and canal. Each room features modern twists of handmade Mola fabrics and patterns from the indigenous communities of Guna and Emberá alongside expressive murals.
