We stayed last week in the Ramada. The Ramada is situated in the middle of Calgary. A bit more in the business district. 15 min drive from Calgary airport. Reception: Very friendy man welcomed us. Booked through Jonview & the roadmap was also there waiting on us. The parking is indeed only valet but for a very reasonable price. Rooms:...

Location was great but walking into the front doors you are greeted with the lovely smell of second hand smoke (first impression). Check in for two days with different prices that were over 50 dollars between two days. Made it to room and was greeted with poor lighting and had to grope around the place in darkness to find a...

Dear Brian B: Thank you for your comments and this opportunity to address them. It is curious that there was any tobacco smell detected in our facility as our property has been smoke-free for several years. In terms of guest room rates, our property is pleased to offer discounted weekend rates which are typically very well received and can offer...

I stayed here last week. I checked in on Thanksgiving Monday and left on Wednesday. the location was convenient and my room was "ok". I was disappointed to find the pub closed due to the holiday and found the customer service to be lacking. The best people working there were the guys in the parking garage who were friendly and...

Dear oc64Edmonton: Thank you for choosing the Ramada on your visit to Calgary during Thanksgiving. During some holidays the Red Fox is indeed closed but our licensed Cheers Restaurant and Room Service remain operational regular hours. While we regret the inconvenience of the beverage room not being open, we do hope we were able to assist on another level and/or...

I've stayed here a few times and it seems like it keeps going downhill. While some effort has been made to makeover the rooms, the common areas are awful. The room with the ice machine, even on the "Executive floor" is creepy and dirty. The bathrooms in the rooms are so small it is hard to get the door shut....

I don't know what other reviewers are smoking, but if this hotel is ranked better than 3, these people have minimal expectations of a hotel in a major city and probably use AAA to get a $5 discount off the continental breakfast. The only thing going for it, is location and that's exactly why they can charge what they do....

I have been staying at the Ramada Calgary Downtown for a number of years now, while attending the annual Calgary International Blues Festival. The hotel is in a perfect location, about 15 minutes by foot from the festival grounds, yet close to shopping and sightseeing in the core of the city. Staff have been exemplary, the services top-notch and the...
