New hotel opens in Panama City

Panama City’s newest hotel, Hotel Indigo, opened its doors last week with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

“We are so proud to bring this property to Panama City’s historic waterfront district,” said Jean Capps, General Manager of Hotel Indigo Downtown Panama City Marina. “We’ve enjoyed a warm welcome from locals, and visitors are wowed by both the hotel and the views it offers of the surrounding area. Holding this ribbon cutting gives us an opportunity to celebrate all that we’ve already accomplished, and to look forward to a bright future in partnership with our community.”

Hotel Indigo Downtown Panama City Marina is a five-story hotel located in the historic waterfront district of downtown Panama City. The hotel offers sweeping views of St. Andrew Bay and a walkable location convenient to the many locally owned restaurants, bars and businesses that make up the unique and historic downtown.

Hotel Indigo properties are designed to be as individual as their surroundings and reflect the local culture of their communities. Each hotel is part of the pulse and rhythm of a place, drawing on the unique story of its local area to inspire every aspect of the hotel, from intriguing design to distinctive local ingredients on menus. At Hotel Indigo Downtown Panama City Marina guests can enjoy two on-site restaurants: Tarpon’s, offering a delicious Southern twist on coastal fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with indoor and outdoor seating providing water views; while the open-air fifth-floor dining venue, Steam on 5, serves fresh local seafood alongside thoughtfully curated craft cocktails with breathtaking views of St. Andrew Bay.

Guests of the hotel enjoy the conveniences of high-speed internet, complimentary parking, a private pool, an outdoor fire pit, a 24-hour fitness center and an onsite retail shop. The hotel is pet-friendly and able to host meetings and special events in a spacious banquet room or outside on the event lawn.
