OK, I rated it 5-star, keeping in mind it's a Ramada. It's not a 5-star Four Seasons. But a great Ramada.
Stayed for 6 nights in a suite on the 16th floor. The suite was only $60 more per night, so we decided it would be worth the difference. The room was very nice with a separate large living room and bedroom. The bathroom was very roomy and the shower / tub worked very well.
The corner suite had lots of windows with a nice view of the city. The curtains were heavy blackout curtains that worked very well to keep out the light. Included were: iron, coffee maker, kettle, tea, blow dryer, bottled water, cookies. No alarm clock in the room.
The 3 elevators seemed to be sufficient. Never a long wait.
The included internet worked very well. Very fast with 5 bars in the room. Very pleased with it. One night (saturday) it stopped working, which is when we realised the staff at the Ramada are wonderful. The gentleman at the front desk offered to reset it. That did not work. Since we needed internet for the purpose of our stay, I begged him to please reset it again. But this time to please keep the system off for 10-20 minutes. That worked.
Throughout the stay we had many dealing with the front desk staff, and every time they were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They were the shining star of the stay.
Parking is 5.5 pounds per day.
Downtown Ikea / Skydome is an easy 7 minute walk. Train station an easy 10 minute walk. About 5 trains an hour to Birmingham Airport at 5 pounds round-trip. Several an hours also to London Euston station starting at 32 pounds each way.
Breakfast was included in our rate. It was very good, but no eggs-to-order station. But there are fried, scrambled and boiled eggs there for you. Fresh fruit and about 6 different juices to chose from. Good coffee.
Really, there is nothing negative to report on the hotel. I would not hesitate to go back at all. We had a great week.
