American Trade Hotel

Happening, One-of-a-Kind, Modern-Design, Luxuriously Boutique in Casco Viejo

Panama City’s first skyscraper is now restored as the newest and most eclectically luxurious hotel in the capital, nestled front row to the Panama Canal in the City’s Old Quarter. This 1917 five-story building evokes strong feelings rooted in the past as it reconstructs a 100 year-old tale of its surroundings. Originally built to exchange American goods for rich locals and expats, the architecture still fuels this vibe of exchange as it continues as a crossroads.

The surrounding, emerging neighborhood of Casco Viejo only furthers this energy as a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of only 981 in the world, serving to preserve the area’s rich cultural and historic diversity. A joint effort between the U.S.-based Ace Hotels with local-based Conservatorio and L.A.’s Commune Design, the American Trade Hotels brings togethers Neoclassical architecture with Art Nouveau heritage. The mansard roof is reminiscent of the stronghold of the French as they attempted to build the Canal in the late 19th century, the rooftop pool was inspired by travels to Marrakech, the interior courtyards of long lunches in Colombian haciendas.

Relive the tropical colonial details in the delicate craftmanship of each room: high ceilings absorbing Canal and plaza views, preserved tile from the original building, hardwood flooring salvaged from underwater logs in the Panama Canal. Like a scene from Casablanca, this Panama City new hotel is stylish, romantic, elegant and spacious, and lives on as Panama’s first luxury high-rise.
