Tel: 507 265 7844's insider take:

The discreet and luxurious Bristol, located in the heart of the financial district, is arguably the best hotel in the city—in part because of its extremely attentive service. The impeccably turned out guest rooms (there are 44) and 12 suites don't hurt, either; all are spacious, decorated in rich colors with mahogany furniture and Panamanian art prints, and have bathrooms tiled in Italian marble. The communal areas include a small fitness room, an elegant restaurant serving regional dishes, and a bar with vintage cognacs and more than 50 kinds of rum.
