This hotel is over priced/rated and in dire need of a makeover. Their bar closes at the week-ends which I find strange. I feel that this hotel is only suitable for business travellers. I certainly would not recommend it to any friends.

We stayed in this Ramada for 3 nights during the first weekend of the Stampede. As we decided to switch to a downtown hotel just the day before, only a room at one of the executive levels was still available. The room was spacious enough, with a little balcony overseeing the pool. The ‘look & feel’ of the balcony and... More

Would not stay again. Rooms were clean and staff were friendly. However, Very noisy corridors thanks to the ingenious design of putting highly textured tile in front of the elevators. Hot water was dangerously, scalding hot. Bathtub was very slippery fell twice despite bath mat provided. Wifi very slow, borderline useless at times. Few restaurants nearby. Not a thing to... More

First of all, this was one of the cheapest downtown Calgary hotels, and considering that, it was great. Sadly I can't justify spending $200 on an alright hotel. Luckily I was there on business and didn't have to pay. If you are looking for a good downtown location, this is the place. I had a meeting in Downtown Calgary, and... More

Stayed at this hotel July 9-10 for the Calgary Stampede, it is very clean and the staff are friendly. Nice restaurant right in the hotel. Only thing is they don't have a compliment shuttle service for this hotel to airport , you have to book and it is $15 per person so it can be pricey.

Friendly staff, comfy room, reasonable price for being in a good location downtown (about 10 mins walk from the Tower and shopping area). Never had to wait long at all for the elevator. Slept well for all three nights we were there. Complimentary toiletries (though no shower cap), iron and ironing board, coffee maker, hairdryer and bathrobes in the room.... More

Cant beat the location if you need to do business downtown Calgary. I was a bit hesitant to stay at the Ramada because of its dated appearance from outside the hotel but once inside it was very nice and clean. The rooms were somewhat dated but really not that bad. Great service, very friendly staff. Had room service for breakfast... More
