I certainly do see what you mean here - that's a pretty weak page and for the average webmaster it looks like it would get a Panda demotion all the way.
At the same time, Frommers built a huge brand before Google bought them, and they have lots of consumer confidence. I'd bet that the user data for any Frommers page in the SERPs is probably very strong. Strong enough to override the rest of Panda? Apparently.
