“Wonderful , friendly, relaxed hotel in awesome location”
Reviewed 30 May 2011

My Mum, sister and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at this wonderfully friendly and relaxed hotel! After a very long flight from Australia we were very pleased to be able to check in early and also be able to sleep in the most comfortable beds !
Rooms are a decent size, large plasma TV , bathroom good size , very clean , great facilities.
Excellent location - short walk to cafe's, bars, shops, chemists, supermarket and very friendly starbucks! Always felt very safe and relaxed when walking around town.
Service was fantastic - the concierge - Jose, was by far the most friendly and helpful gentleman we have ever met whilst travelling. we can't say thank you enough for his wonderful service !
This was our first time in LA and we have so many fond memories thanks to the wonderful staff and amazing time we had while staying at the Ramada!

We stayed at Ramada for 6 nights. We found the room very clean, quiet and comfortable.
When booking online we had specifically asked for a quiet room and was happy with what we got. Front desk service was average, but we had no problems. The hotel is in a good location within walking distance of clubs/restaurants on Santa Monica Blvd and Sunset Blvd. We would definitely stay there again.

This was my second time staying at the Ramada Plaza in LA. After my first visit, I had discovered that the hotel was in a great central location close to the tourist attractions, as well as across the road from Trader Joes mini market and Starbucks. It is also close to transport and the buses to the Beverley Centre. The hotel staff, in particular Hugo the Concierge are so very accommodating. Hugo was extremely helpful and friendly and assisted us in booking our transfers to the airport, as well as taxis and helped with our tour bookings and sight seeing plans. We hope to return to LA again, if we are lucky enough to do so we would definitely be returning to this hotel. It is also located just beside one of the best Vietnamese restaurants we have been to.

Thank you for your review of Ramada Plaza Hotel. The hotel has a terrific location and is close to many attractions.

It’s also convenient to have both Starbucks and Trader Joes next to the hotel.

The Beverly Center, The Grove are both close to the hotel and offer great shopping and restaurants.
I’m glad to hear our concierge staff, especially Hugo was very helpful.

Great location and reasonable price but the rooms are a bit dowdy and other guests can be noisy particularly at weekends.
Great for bus travel - straight to Downtown in one direction and to Santa Monica in the other.
Neighbourhood felt safe even at night - having the police station nearby helps.
Would stay again but try for the rooms overlooking the pool witht the hardwood floors.

Thank you for your review:

I couldn't agree with you more regarding location and price. Downtown LA and Santa Monica are also convenient from the hotel.

Dowdy???

Yes, sometimes guests return from an entertainment venue and carry their enthusiam with them to the hotel. This occurs occassionally on the weekends. We have security staff on-site that can intervene to make sure other guests are not disturbed.

The neighbourhood is safe and having the police station nearby is a big plus.

Stayed at this property for 3 nights from the 2nd of May. Check in was quick. Concierge, I think his name was Jose, was excellent. Best during our trip. Even organized a town car to LAX rather than a cab, for the same price. Rooms clean and excellent aircon. Great selection of channels on TV. Only issue I have is with authorization. Ramada took a authorization upon check in, 3 days after check out Ramada took their final bill total also, effectively $1000 total. At reception their is a sign advising that some banking institutions hold these funds for up to 14 days. I do not accept this. After Ramada we stayed at two Travelodge properties, in Palm Springs the authorization was removed once the final amount settled. In San Francisco, they simply charged the full amount, no authorization. Poor effort from Ramada, the average traveller cannot afford to have so much in funds tied up. Overall my stay was great, I would recommend staying here however ensure all accommodation is pre-paid in full.

Thank you for your review. I’m glad to hear our concierge provided you with excellent service.

Its also easy for our staff to organize transportation for our guests since Enterprise Rent-a-Car is located at the hotel.

The 42” HDTV’s in our guestrooms get a lot of positive guest reviews. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed our selection of TV channels, many are in High Definition.

Regarding authorizations, our merchant bank releases funds within 24 hours after departure. We find the issue is usually our customers merchant bank does not release their funds immediately.

Some banking institutions we have found hold funds up to 14 days. That’s determined by the customer’s merchant card bank, not the hotels.
This can also apply to debit cards as well.

The release of funds can also be delayed based upon when the bank settles the transaction. It is a very normal practice today in the industry that a hotel receives an advance deposit or a credit card authorization to guarantee funds are available to pay for the room.

I had a well-appointed, quiet room in the heart of West Hollywood - what more could you want? Secure parking was nice (but a little expensive). Trader Joe's is directly across the street, as well as numerous places to eat and drink. Perfect!

Glad to hear you had a nice, quiet and relaxing stay.

Trader Joe's is a great amenity located across the street from the Ramada Plaza Hotel.

Parking is expensive, but not uncommon for most urban locations.

I usually don't care for Ramadas, and find many run down and dumpy, but this property is definitely an exception. The room I request every stay has hardwood floors and a balcony. Many of the rooms have mini fridges and microwaves. The pool is great. The free wi-fi is an added bonus.

The staff is excellent and always remembers me as a returning guest and wecomes me back. I have stayed here both as a solo traveller and with friends and is perfect for either travelling situation.

The location is great. For the gay traveller it is near all the WEHO gay bars. There is a bike trail along santa monica boulevard right outside the hotel. The area is very pedestrian friendly with plenty of crosswalks which most drivers do seem to honor unlike many cities. If you like to walk or shop there is plenty of shopping around. The Beverly Center is less than a mile away and if the weather is nice, the walk down Santa Monica to Rodeo Drive shopping in beverly hills is nice as well with the nice walking trail that begins about a half mile away from the hotel on Santa Monica (I think it's about 1 mile and a half walk). There is a trader joes next door, plenty of dining nearby, a CVS a block away.

I would recomend a car if you stay at this property, cab fare is about $50 with tip each way. The parking is in a garage attached to the hotel but is pricy at $27 a day (valet or self park but with in and out). The Primo bistro next door was a great place to eat at and provided room service and charging privledges to your room, but has closed and I am not sure if there is another other place that provies room service or room charging privledges now. The hotel doesn't have an on site restaraunt, but there are many places nearby to eat at and I am sure some of the deliver.

A couple places I like to go to every visit is Paris Crepes, the hamburger stand on Santa Monica near palm, and yogurt stop. The Fiesta Cantina on Santa Monica is also a great place to go for drinks, it's a mixed gay/straight crowd, with a nice patio and upstairs with two happy hours every day from 4 to 8 and 10:30 to 12:30 with two for one or double strength drinks and they pour strong there. Hugo's on the opposite direction on Santa Monica is another favorite place of mine to eat at.

The only things I don't like about the hotel is no stairway access to the lobby and no free printing of boarding passes. The room I like is at the end of the hall (and this is a long hallway) and the only way to get to the lobby is to walk to the elevators. It would be so much more convenient if I could just use the stairs next to my room. They used to print boarding passes at the front desk but now you have to pay to use the business center computers, but that isn't a big deal, I just do it at the airport now.

Thank you for your review.

It sounds like you stay in our Executive Suite. Its nicely appointed room with the minifridge and microwave. All suites in the hotel have hardwood floors.

Our WiFi is currently in the process of being upgraded to higher bandwidth speeds, so were excited to hear the feedback from our guests.

I’m glad to hear you received excellent service from our staff.

The hotel is conveniently located near Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Los Angeles.

Both night clubs, entertainment and shopping on Sunset Blvd., or Santa Monica Blvd are very close to the hotel.

The Trader Joes right next door is very convenient and fullservice CVS is a block away.

The hotel is in the process of opening up a new restaurant Kitchen 24, which will service breakfast, lunch, dinner and provide room service. It will also be open 24 hours a day which is a nice bonus.

Also, there is a stairway on the east side of the hotel which allows you to walk downstairs to the lobby if you don't want to take the elevator.
