Tel: 507 206 3100's insider take:

It looks like something you'd find on a quiet street in Paris, but this mansard-roofed boutique hotel sits right in Panama City's financial district. And that's not a bad place to be, considering many of the city's best restaurants are within a few blocks. (You might not get farther than the ground-floor Ten Bistro, where the white-on-white dining room is a perfect backdrop for chef Fabien Migny's French-influenced dishes.) The 33 rooms and suites all have plenty of room for spreading out; the standard units have spacious sitting areas with tartan-print couches and executive-size desks, and broadband Internet access. There are luxurious touches everywhere, from hand-carved chairs to silky-soft linens to marble bathrooms—but the three top-floor luxury suites up the ante, with staircases leading to bedrooms tucked under the eaves. Ground-floor rooms have no view and little light, so ask for an upper-floor suite when you book.
