If you are in the downtown core of Calgary, whether its for business or a night out. The Ramada Downtown on 8th is the perfect location. The staff were polite and helpful and the room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. We had just been out celebrating my birthday, and stayed one night in the 2 queen bed...

Room was clean, but little things like dirty light switch (wanted to use a cloth to turn off and on), calking around sink was dirty and missing in areas, doors to room and balcony stuck making hard...

I found the room very cold & could not control the AC as it is not room controlled. The steps going into the pool seemed lose & do not go deep enough in the pool to get out, I had a real problem with that. Other than that the staff if helpful, the food was good, room cleaned.

This hotel is over priced/rated and in dire need of a makeover. Their bar closes at the week-ends which I find strange. I feel that this hotel is only suitable for business travellers. I certainly would not recommend it to any friends.

We stayed in this Ramada for 3 nights during the first weekend of the Stampede. As we decided to switch to a downtown hotel just the day before, only a room at one of the executive levels was still available. The room was spacious enough, with a little balcony overseeing the pool. The ‘look & feel’ of the balcony and...
