Ramada Plaza Calgary Downtown
Ranked #80 of 110 Hotels in Calgary
Reviewed 28 October 2012

I have rated this hotel average and I have no problem staying at average hotels when the price is commensurate with the rating. The last trip was business and this one was pleasure and the downtown location with price was the deciding factor both times. Allow $15 to park underground but car is safe. I couldn't even get at the parkade after midnight without calling an attendant from front desk. Not a big deal. We got 2 double beds so if Queens are important to you, make sure you confirm upon reservation. Room showing age a bit but very adequate. Room and bathroom a touch on smallish side. I didn't use the lobby restaurant this trip but as I recall prices are reasonable.

ok so the lobby doesnt inspire much confidence but the rooms are much better. looks like its had a basic renovation and for the price (relative to other Calgary accom) its not bad for a short stay. its centrally located and walking distance to stephens walk (where all the shops and restaurants are). has large rooms and an ok bathroom.
its also clean and comfy beds -although i found the beds in canada very hot as a general rule. i stayed in quite a few different canadian hotels on this trip and i found most of them dont have proper air conditioning so the room gets really hot at night. Ramada was similar but maybe thats normal for Canada...
theres also a small pool but we didnt use it, it was way too cold.

Room Tip: calgary is all around pretty quiet, i think any room would be quite peaceful. we booked the cheapes...

I recently stayed there and the bed cover was not clean it had staining, when I asked them to come in and change the bedding, they could not because, the attendant was not allowed to remove the mattress cover. I would not stay here

Room Tip: check the beds before you sleep there

The hotel doesn't look to good on the outside. It looks weird in the lobby. But the rooms look pretty nice and seemed to be remodeled relatively recently. We had a balcony overlooking the pool and some of the city which was nice. The location is nice. It is just a few blocks down from the hopping restaurant area on the same street. Walking to Prince Island Park and Eau Claire is also not too far, probably about a mile away. There is a turn down service. The desk service was marginal. The room was roomy. I booked the room for free using Wyndham Rewards. There was a wedding reception going on that night so the lobby area was busy.

2 of us travelled to Calgary for a conference. The meals were excellent in the restaurant and a special thank you to Lucy who told us how to get around in Calgary and served us at each meal with a smile and conversation. Also a special thank you to Lee at the front desk who took considerable time to overcome the glitches with my tablet and got me connected.
Awesome staff in this hotel. Hotel is very good, convenient to downtown, but the food and staff are great!

We called to book directly with hotel, we were told no jacuzzi rooms available so we called the 1-800 number and they said there was a jacuzzi room left so we booked it.
We arrived and went to our room, the condition of the room was a disgrace. Walls cracked up, light fixtures broken, stains on ceiling, hairs in jacuzzi, toe nail on floor, dirty floors....ect...ect.
We called the manager up to see the room and he offered to move us to another room which was a little better, at least it was clean. I know managers can't be everywhere at one time but I would never recommend the Calgary downtown Ramada Hotel to anyone.

Dear Leona S,
Thank you for your comments received. Our manager on duty immediately logged your feedback and the room deficiencies you identified have since been corrected. All rooms should be in good repair prior to selling and we apologize for the unusual lack of attention. We are pleased you found every detail to be in order in the newly assigned room and that your anniversary night celebration then promptly resumed as planned. In addition to his apologies, the Duty Manager sent a bottle of wine to your room and we do hope it was enjoyed.
Thank you for choosing the Ramada.
