De eerste dag en meteen een heel spannende

Deze morgen veel te vroeg opgestaan. Toch nog een beetje “kinderroche”. Maar ok je vertrekt niet alle dagen voor een drieweekse trip naar Canada. Geen problemen op de Brusselse ring richting luchthaven. Inchecken doe je nu als doorgewinterde reizigers van huis uit. Dus alleen de bagage nog “droppen”, de niet te ontlopen …

Day 1 - Arrival

Our flight to Calgary was a little delayed. So we arrived a bit later than expected. I had a mild cold before getting on the plane & it got worse. Still I was happy to arrive at the Calgary airport. While waiting for our airport shuttle we discovered a brass sculpture. Duane wanted a picture of it so I took one. It is beautiful. Though I didn't …

De stad verkennen

Alvorens wij onze verkeningstocht door de stad voortzetten maken wij flink gebruik van het ontbijtbuffet. Wij starten met een bezoek aan de Calgary tower, een hoge toren van 191m die een prachtig uitzicht biedt over de stad, de prairies in de omgeving en in de verte de Rocky mountains. Een stuk glazen vloer zorgt voor de nodige spanning en veel …

10.27am Woke up super early at 4.30am Calgary time. I'm still on Toronto time. Sore throat & stuffy nose. I feel tired. Had a big breakfast at the hotel restaurant downstairs & now it's time for me to take a nap before meeting up with my reiki friends this afternoon. Duane has gone to the Skyline luge. Hope he is having fun barreling down the luge track!

    Decent hotel for the price.

    We booked the executive king bed room, which is fine except for a few small things that are missing. For one thing there isn't really a towel rack in the bathroom if you want to hang up your towel. Also the bathroom is quite small, about the size of a small closet. There is only a shower. The shower only has one tiny shelf. Also not much counter space in the bathroom. I'm a woman I got lots of tools to lay out like my cosmetic brushes, make up, etc.

    Other than that the room service food is delicious if pricey (but that's to be expected). Service in general has been good. Though we asked for a wake up call the day we had to wake up super early for a day tour & the call never happened.

    Location of the hotel is good. The c train is just a block away. The Calgary Tower is close by too.

    Prima locatie. Meeste bezienswaardigheden op loopafstand. Goede kamer, van alle gemakken voorzien, met uitstekende grote bedden. Uitzicht vanaf onze kamer was niks, wij kijken uit op een steegje met kantoorgebouw aan de overkant..... Maar ja jij slaapt er alleen maar. Goed ontbijt.

    Stay elsewhere......

    from

    Although I booked this hotel on-line, I called Ramada reservations to confirm that in requesting two non-smoking rooms on-line I would actually get them, and preferentially adjoining. I was told by the Ramada rep that this would be no problem, and to go ahead and book on-line. We were assigned two smoking rooms on check-in, that were also not adjoining. The rooms stunk of smoke. When we requested that we be transferred to non-smoking rooms, or at the very least have one non-smoking room as we had a chiild with us, we were essentially told, "tough luck". There was no attempt to make up for this in any manner. I was with out-of-country guests who were very unimpressed, and I was embarrassed by the lack of hospitality. I've stayed at other Ramada hotels in other cities and had good experiences. Unfortunately, after my experience in Calgary, I will never use their hotels again.

    Good budget hotel

    from

    Stayed here in September before moving on to the Rockies . Good clean budget priced hotel with large rooms , breakfast extra but the buffet was good for the price . Only a short walk straight down to the main area of town . A few bars and restaurants close by , many more in the centre and near the market place .

    Good hotel if on a budget and just looking to see Calgary , which can be seen in a day . We had a day and a half and spent the half day at the zoo just to pass the time as we had seen everything else .

    Great location at a good price

    from

    We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in September 2005. As stated in previous reviews the exterior of the building needed a facelift. However, the interior of the hotel was very nice. We stayed on one of the executive floors and although we were close to the lift we did not hear any noise. The room spacious and clean with all the facilities you would expect in a Ramada hotel. Every evening the bed was turned down and a chocolate left on the pillow which was a nice touch.

    Very helpful weekend manager

    from

    Stayed here 2 weekend nights in September at the end of our Rocky Mountaineer train packaged tour. Location is central to downtown and shops, restaurants and pubs. The 7th Street shopping area and mall are just down the street. Be sure to go see the Devonian Gardens on the 4th floor of the mall. It is an indoor tropical garden!!

    Good Budget Hotel

    from

    We stayed in the Ramada Downtown in Calgary for 2 nights at the end of September and although it does not look great from the outside we enjoyed our stay. It is in a great location for exploring the city and if you are on a budget it is a good choice. Rooms were clean and staff friendly so if you are just looking for somewhere to sleep this is the place for you!

    Ramada chain a safe bet.

    from

    Spent 3 nights in Calgary and chose the hotel as it was in a central location. The hotel was clean and staff were very helpful. No complimentary breakfast so we had to walk for about 15-20mins to find a Starbucks or Tim Hortons. Hotel catered mainly for buisiness users and the gym facilities were very dated. They did have a coin laundry so you wernt forced to use hotel service.

    It's okay, nothing too special

    from

    I'm currently staying here right now, I'm on the top Executive floor. It's a decent hotel, clean, staff is okay, rooms are okay, nothing too extravagant or luxorious. It has a balcony in the room but it's too cold to go outside. Housekeeping puts 2 chocolates on your pillows, which is somethign I've never seen, and I've stayed at a lot of hotels, but is a nice gesture I assume. Overall it's a decently pleasant experience, I have no complaints, but if you are looking for pure luxury, you may want to try another place. If you are looking for a clean, friendly, economical, safe, and hassle-free accomodation, then this seems to fit the bill.

    Central hotel

    from

    Spent two nights recently in the Ramada hotel Down town in Calgary, it is very central, has several nearby eating places very reasonably priced. Nice clean rooms but my special surprise was that for $9.95 you could use the TV as internet use in a 24 hr period or could send e-cards for free. Useful for keeping in touch with the need to find and internet cafe.

    OK, but not luxurious

    from

    Hotel was OK. Good rate for downtown, but if your looking for luxury, it's really not here. Staff was great, very helpful. The rooms were very small, no coffee was left in our room, had to phone down to get some. It is a good rate for downtown Calgary, but rooms are very average.
