I checked out of the Sortis Hotel and Casino a little after the scheduled checkout of 12pm because I was busy taking pictures of the property.
I booked a single bed King apartment for $104/night at the regular rate. I used my Marriott Rewards credit card pay for the stay. I do not know how many points that I was able to earn because they have not posted after almost three weeks.
The hotel was located 10 minutes (4 miles) from the Sortis Hotel and Casino. I did not see nor did I ask about valet parking because I was in an Uber.
The front desk was to the right when I entered the hotel through the main entrance.
There were no guests ahead of me so I was helped immediately. I was welcomed back to Marriott and thanked for being a Gold member. The agent asked to make a copy of a form of identification which was not a big deal. After a few minutes, I had my keys in had made my way to the room.
The room was located on the fifth floor. I exited the elevator, made a right, and the room was down on the left.
The room had a bunch of space, but it was a but dated. I enjoyed it though.
The living side of the suite had a kitchen, dining table, and a decent enough living area. There was a business area, complete with a chair, as I entered the room but I did not use it on my short stayover.
The sleeping area consisted of a comfortable bed, television (which I did not use), and the bathroom. The bathroom setup was weird, the bathroom could be entered from the living room or the bedroom but if either door was opened independently, it would make it a pain in the butt to enter from the other room.
There were two dining options at the property. Neither were appealing.
I did not see anyone at this spot during my 12 hours at the hotel. There were a spirits and beers on hand, but with four seats, it did not seem appealing.
Adegas was an Italian restaurant located a few floors above the lobby. I did not particularly care for it because I asked the only waitress that I saw working the spot if I could sit outside (to which she agreed) but I was never provided a menu. I left after five minutes.
The fitness center was located on its own level. It included the fitness center, sauna, and outdoor swimming pool. All of it had seen better days. The ropes near the jacuzzi were not the best. I did not like this set up…
I had a decent night stay at the Marriott Executive Apartments in Panama City. The property needed a renovation and lacked amenities. The staff members were very friendly. With that being said, it would be a tough call for me to stay there again.
