My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights, wasn't thrilled with it, staff not very helpful and quite miserable, although the valet parking boys were great. The room was very small and bed not very comfortable, shower was awful. The lifts were the worst I've ever been in, I appreciate that the hotel is very old but I'm sure... More

We loved the 1913 feel of the St. James Hotel ( now the Ramada). It was a classic old urban hotel with high ceilings and a gracious lobby. The room and bathroom were very small but they were very clean and well appointed. We loved the rooftop and being able to take our own wine and food up there to... More

I get bargin, I get you get what you pay for. What I don't get and won't put up with are safety concerns and insects. For some reason this hotel is listed as an option in my company's travel system. This is not an ideal location for business travelers (in my opinion). I walked into my room to find a... More

The reviews on this hotel while reflecting the true experiences and feelings of the writers, seem to fail to take into account the reason for the hotel to be in its modus operandi. Almost everything the participants perceived to be a negative is part of the reason for the charm of the hotel. When I stayed there in 2012, they... More

Let me start by saying that my wifey and I travel a lot, all over the world. We’ve been all over Europe, India, the Caribbean, Central America, Canada, and the states. We’ve seen our share of great small rooms, bad large rooms, and everything in between. So when we read feedback about the Ramada Gaslamp and looked at the price,... More

I stayed at this property based on price and location. The lobby is decent and it has a old world feel. The room was terrible. Probably a total of 12x10 feet with no exterior windows. Walls were thin and you could hear your neighbors conversations and the elevator clanking all night. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
