Stayed here in November in an executive room despite the fact it was freezing outside it was about 26/27 degrees in our room way too hot to sleep. We spoke to reception in the morning and they couldn't fix it so gave us a fan which was way too noisy to sleep with it on. On the third day we...

I stayed here for two nights on business and the hotel was very clean. Was able to enjoy both the restaurant and pub, good drink specials. Victoria at the Front Desk had great customer service. Guestroom was spacious and did the trick, the location was awesome as well. One of the best parts was the underground parking, especially with the...

Staff at the ramada downtown were super nice. Specifically Kenneth from the front desk. Price for the room was decent. Room was clean and location is amazing. You can walk to any bar or night club without paying for a cab. Will be back and the ramada downtown will be my go to Hotel.

This hotel was great, close to everything and very attentive staff. The beds were comfortable and kept clean. We stayed just above the pool and so had a great view of the city below us. Calgary is a great city and this was reflected in the area we stayed in. Close walk from a park as well. They had an...

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The rooms definitely are in desperate need of an update, they are just very outdated and old.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!

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.
