Hotel Etana is a world class five-star hotel[1] in downtown Panama City. It is popular among politicians, government officials, diplomats, celebrities, upper-class Panamanians, foreign visitors and other high-profile individuals.[2] Ben Saxon visits this hotel during the events of Deus Ex: The Fall.


Hotel Etana consists of the lobby area, upstairs suites, the penthouse (VIP suite), and the rooftop, which is directly accessible from the penthouse. The rooftop has a helicopter pad.

The hotel uses multiple layers of security features to ensure guest safety. The lobby floor has security cameras installed, and is patrolled by security guards. There is also a security office near the lobby. Apartments and service rooms are equipped with digital code locks. However, ventilation shafts provide a way to bypass these security measures.

Notable ResidentsEdit

During the events of The Fall, the penthouse is rented out by Stuart St. John, a World Health Organization inspector who is investigating clinical trials of the Riezene drug in Panama. During his stay, the whole penthouse floor is under lockdown and is guarded.

Dr. Camila Cardoso, the manager of the local LIMB clinic, is temporarily renting out a room in the hotel, in an attempt to hide from Skulls thugs to whom she refused treatment.

Deus Ex: The FallEdit

Ben Saxon visit Hotel Etana near the end of the game to confront the WHO inspector Stuart St. John in the penthouse suite. Here, St. John admits to Saxon that Riezene is not ready for market yet, and he plans to go public as a whistleblower. Saxon is too late, however, as a Tyrants VTOL blows open the window to the suite, and a newly augmented Sam Duarte shoots the inspector dead. Saxon learns that his former teammate Duarte is not only alive, but also working for the Tyrants.

The side quest Stalkers involves dealing with thugs outside Camila Cardoso's room in Hotel Etana.
