We were assigned room 309 which they shamefully call an "executive room" it's more like a broom closet. The room is so small that it is difficult to pass between the dresser and the foot of the bed without turning sideways. The WiFi was Terrible and it kept cutting in an out. There was no mention of the $15 fee... More

I stayed at the Ramada downtown for a week, to attend a conference in the beginning of April. I enjoyed the breakfast selection, wi-fi was fast and easy to connect to, and the conference rooms were comfortable and spacious. The banquet staff was always very helpful and attentive, and so was the front desk personnel. They were always ready to... More

The best thing about Ramada Calgary downtown is its location and the great value the accommodation offers in the hear of Calgary. You can pretty much walk to anywhere in downtown Calgary from Ramada and it is located quite close to the C-Train stop, which by the way is free to use within downtown Calgary. Other than the location, the... More

Hello Elton D, Thank you for your kind comments about our hotel. I am sorry your internet connection was dropping. I am not sure if you know that each section of the hotel has their own internet connection. It could have been that you were connecting to a network not in your area, therefore had a weaker signal. Please let... More
