I stayed at the Ramada for a few nights in May. Overall the visit was fine, but nothing particular to recommend about it.
The Good: Room was large and clean. Free internet. Room Service. Central to downtown and my company's office. Some staff were very friendly (Al from the bell desk). Bed was comfortable. Large flat screen tv.
The Bad: Room needed updating. Tiles from the jacuzzi tub (in the room) were missing, lightbulbs were out, and one bedside lamp didn't work. Wireless internet was a joke; I could never get a signal above fair and it cut out on me completely while I was working one evening (tried for an hour to get back on but no luck). Jacuzzi tub in neighboring room was extremely noisy; very loud when water was running and it sounded like a roaring waterfall in the walls when the tub drained. Shower and toilet room were super tiny; shower felt like an RV shower; could not tilt the shower head so water would stay inside - it pointed straight out the door, which meant huge puddles on the floor when turning it on. No counterspace at the sink. Front desk staff weren't particularly friendly; when I checked out, I stood there for at least a minute, no one else was in line, two desk staff were looking at the computer and never once looked up or said hi or acknowledged me (the bell desk gentleman took care of me though).
One other odd thing: I ordered room service the first morning I was there and wasn't able to touch it due to some work emergencies; I figured housekeeping would take it away, but it was still there when I got back that night. I left it again the next morning and what do you know - it was STILL there on the second day. So basically I had a cold breakfast sitting in my room for two whole days, yuck. I know I could have put it in the hallway, and it might have been two different cleaners who didn't know the food was old, but it just struck me as strange.
I will probably stay here again due to proximity of the hotel to the places I need to visit in Calgary, but it would not be my first choice. It's liveable for a couple days though.
