InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a 15-year license agreement with Shakir Investment Group for a new-build Staybridge Suites hotel, scheduled to open in late 2012 in Panama City, Panama.

It will be the first Staybridge Suites property in Central America, and the second in South America, complementing a 31-story, 215-guestroom Staybridge Suites in Saő Paulo, Brazil.

Located less than two miles off the Bridge of the Americas and next to the entrance to the popular Amador Causeway, the 122-room Staybridge Suites Panama City will be in close proximity to the Figali Convention Center, the Smithsonian Institute of Tropical Research and other popular tourist destinations, fine dining restaurants and beautiful scenery.

“This is the perfect time and location to build a Staybridge Suites hotel in Panama,” said Jim Anhut, Chief Development Officer, the Americas, IHG. “As the Canal is being expanded, it is estimated that an influx of families of expatriated workers will need extended-stay housing in the city. A Staybridge Suites hotel, with all the amenities it provides long term guests, is a timely addition to this area.”

The 13-story property will feature three suite options (deluxe studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom/two-bath). All suites include in-room DVD/CD players; functional, well-lit work stations with ergonomic seating; speaker phones, personal voice mail and complimentary local phone calls; and fully equipped kitchens.

Amenities will include complimentary daily breakfast buffet; complimentary guest laundry and workout facilities; a complimentary 24-hour business services center; a guest library with books and games; and BridgeMart, the hotel’s 24-hour convenience store stocked with snacks, sundries, beverages and easy-to-prepare meals.

The hotel also includes a fully-equipped fitness center, rooftop swimming pool, two-story underground parking and meeting space.

Guests will be invited to get comfortable in the hotel’s Great Room for evening “Sundowner” receptions three days a week that include complimentary refreshments, light appetizers and conversation.
