Our Hotel

The French Colonial

The French Colonial

The French Colonial

Originally built in 1739, by the Jesuits as the first university in Panamá. This building has survived two great fires and a major earthquake following the Jesuit expulsion from the New World.  It was repurposed during the French period of the Panamá Canal.

The Spanish Colonial

The Spanish Colonial

The Spanish Colonial

The oldest of the four buildings that make up the hotel. This structure was formerly completed around 1688 by the Jesuits after the destruction of the original city of Panamá by Captain Henry Morgan.  Subsequently, after the Jesuit expulsion order from King Carlos III of Spain, this building, at 150 years old, became Hotel Washington in 1820.  However, bear in mind, it would still be another 50 years before the building of the Statue of Liberty or the Eiffel Tower commenced.  Lady Mallet, founder of the National Red Cross in Panamá, was also known to be a longtime resident in the building.

The American Beaux Arts

The current building was built in 1905 as a high-end department store known as the American Bazaar.  The beaux art architecture tells the story of the next chapter at Casco Antiguo and the American period of the Panamá Canal.

Feel the sensation of going back in time, through centuries of history and culture to enjoy the simple art of dining accompanied by the finest wines from the restaurant’s distinct private cellar.  Appreciate these timeless walls surrounded by international and local personalities, who have made a positive difference to the country.  1739 is not just a restaurant … it’s a historical gastronomic experience.

Exilio Bar

Restaurant Bar

Exilio Bar

Over 250 years ago, the Jesuits taught, resided and more than likely enjoyed their evening brew, in this very building until their sudden expulsion in 1767.  That secret exile order from King Carlos III of Spain to suppress the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) accounts for Exilio’s existence.  Continue with traditions and enjoy your preferred brew in this exclusive monastic bar.

American Bazaar

All Day Dining

American Bazaar

This one-of-a-kind restaurant is a genuine recreation of a 1905 iconic local department store.  An enormous effort has been made to replicate this authentic venue, paying homage to the original store.  Built during the heyday of the American chapter in Panamá, when mammoth efforts were made to finish the Canal.  While admiring the eclectic surroundings, guests can enjoy a casual yet appetizing fare in a relaxed atmosphere.
