“Ramada Don't”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

I stayed at the Ramada Inn Downtown Denver for a conference at the convention center. This hotel is approximately 1.6+ miles form the convention center (about $7-8 for a taxi ride). We had problems from the first moment when we tried to confirm our reservation and request a credit authorization to use the company credit card.

Cons
-The free shuttle runs only at the top of the hours and is always full. Expect to have to pay for a taxi. I don't know what the return is like because the van was always full then too.
-The ceiling height on the 3rd floor is somewhere between six and a half feet tall and not quite seven feet tall. If you are tall you might need to duck.
-Bathroom fixtures are moldy and dirty.
-Entire hotel is outdated.
-Furniture is old, stained, or worn.
-Towels are threadbare.
- Lighting is terrible and it is difficult to read even with all the lights on in the room.

Pros
-The bed is comfortable and the sheets are clean.

I would not return. Nor would I ever book this hotel for myself. Pay the extra money to stay closer and more comfortably to the convention center.

We stayed here for three days. Many complained about the location, but I never felt uncomfortable. My wife and I walked back from 16th street late at night on all three nights. There are many homeless. If you have not lived in a big city, I can understand how you might feel uncomfortable walking at night here, but I have lived in San Francisco and felt safe. So take it for what it’s worth.
The shuttle was excellent. We took it to Coors Stadium twice. If you are uncomfortable walking to 16th street, they’ll take you there. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. I was bringing in the cart with our luggage and got stuck in the entry way. Two sets of doors opening opposite direction, and the front desk manager came running out to assist me with the door. They do not charge for parking as a lot of hotels in Denver do. Many of the hotels on and around 16th are very pricey. This is a nice alternative to those at much less cost.
We will stay there again next time.

Front desk was very pleasant, no unifomrs though


Bed closest to the Window Room 369 slants to one side so very difficult to sleep.

I found nothing basically wrong with this hotel, and the room was clean as far as was possible. Essentially, the hotel is long overdue a refurbishment and needs gutting as everything has a slightly grubby run down feel about it. I really can't recommend particularly, although it was relatively inexpensive for the location. Breakfast was dire.

Room Tip: Ask for none-smoking. Although they do have tired furnishings.

The hotel is very easy to get to, and walking distance to plenty of things down town. The rooms were overall pretty clean. The stair cases reminded me of college dorms. The hallways were a little dark and the decor was obviously pretty old. We were on the side facing Colfax, so Friday night it was a little noisy. But Thursday it was very quiet. And there aren't very many places to plug things in, like your phone or computer. Also, I don't think there were any overhead lights.

The hotel staff was informative and kind. I asked one of the hotel staff if they could recommend a breakfast location and they referred us to a wonderful resturant with very tasty food.

Convenient, easy to get to and pleasantly surprised with the size and comfort of the rooms. Liked the dedicated parking lot only for hotel guests.
