It's clean, comfortable and the staff is friendly. Israel, one of the staff time, was pretty cooperative and friendly. The hotel could accept money as a check-in deposit or let people know beforehand about the condition of only accept credit cards. At night, when gets colder, the pipes vibrate making it a little uncomfortable to sleep. It's well located downtown...

Good Morning, Your kind comments are very much appreciated, our staff do their very best to ensure guests feel welcome. You mentioned accepting cash as a deposit. Unfortunately, it is an industry standard to require a valid credit card at check in. That information is on our website and on the confirmation issued by us as well as third party...

The rooms definitely are in desperate need of an update, they are just very outdated and old. The staff was super friendly! Nice location close to everything we needed, and surprisingly it was very quiet. But the rooms were comfortable. All in all of stay here again!

I’ve stayed at this Ramada a number of times and have always been happy. This last time was beyond our expectations. My girlfriend & I booked a weekend ‘staycation’ in an Executive King Suite on the 9th floor. We requested the one with the jet tub in the corner. When we walked in the room, we were blown away! What...

Good Afternoon Chris L. Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. I am thrilled to hear you enjoyed your "staycation" with us. You mentioned that your room did not have a balcony. We do have balcony rooms on the south side of our building. Perhaps, when you come to visit us again, we can ensure...

The Ramada Plaza has a good (but not prime) downtown location. I stayed here to attend a conference which was also located at the hotel. The location is good, a little south and west of the prime downtown area. Hotel valet parking is available ($25/day) as well as a public parkade next door. The hotel is old and a little...

This is a very convenient property, given that my work location was a mere two blocks from the property. It is a tad dated (the heating system could use a bit of updating) and a fridge in the room would be nice also. Aside from that, I would stay here again.

Stayed here for two days of business meetings. Booked online through our in-house travel agency and seemed to be a very good price. Location is decent and within walking distance of most amenities. Older rooms, but the staff is very good. Underground valet parking but if you're driving a larger vehicle (3/4 ton) it will fit but it's pretty tight...

Stayed in the place after two years and surprised to find the dip in services of this hotel. The reservations were hard to find due to the Calgary international film festival. The rates are quite high as compared to the facilities. The rooms seemed to have a pungent smell and the carpets are too old to be recognised. Some of...

This was our second visit to the Ramada Downtown, our first being two years ago. The hotel seems to be brighter than our previous visit, and the standard of the staff is even better than before.

Good clean hotel in a central location and accessible for a city break in Calagary. The reception staff were extremely helpful and a great source of information on how to get around the city, places to visit and where to find things. The rooms are a good size, clean and comfortable.
