Bridge View Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with beautiful views of the Bridge of the Americas from its floor-to-ceiling windows.
The hotel also has a TGI Friday’s restaurant for casual dining and a lobby bar that offers small plates, local craft beer and signature cocktails. The hotel can serve as a venue for meetings and special events.
There are 13 flexible meeting rooms for hosting gatherings from 18 to 150 guests.
“We are honoured to open our doors under the Radisson brand in the beautiful Panama City,” said Guillermo Quijano Duran, the hotel’s vice president.
