                      The hotel itself was in a good location the room was clean and very comfy..... Most staff were nice and friendly

                      He lady who checked us in was not helpful, rude and not willing to help.She tried to over charge us by $120 I had to go and print my booking email with the price on it to get the cheaper rate that was quoted to me. We had requested 2 beds in our room, there was only 1, we called to reception to advise of this, the lady said she was with a client would call us back- 10 mins later nothing... Went to reception to ask about changing rooms, she greeted us "Hello" like she had never seen us!!! She advised no 2 bed rooms were left... I was not taking no I had prebooking weeks in advance!!! It was only when her manager Tony came over I was given the room I had requested...unhelpful!!!!!

                      The staff were quite unhelpful. They tried to overcharge me. I corrected them, and eventually we settled on the price I reserved with Booked.net. Even after the price was adjusted correctly, them they made it seem as if they had done me a favour. Also, I had specifically stated in my Booked.net comments section that I wanted two double beds. I found out the only such room they had "had a leak" but I would be "upgraded" to a single King-sized bed. This was not, in fact, an upgrade. If they had read my reservation comments (which they clearly didn't), then they would have realized that I wanted 2 beds. Their suggestion that two grown men share a bed was unacceptable. Booked.net should verify with partner hotels that requests made on Booked.net forms are respected - or at least read. The staff had to be convinced of both the price and bed set-up of my hotel room, when I had specifically made my selections clear with Booked.net. Poor service, and part of the blame rests with Booked.net.

                      Close to the Downtown where most of my meetings were there.

                      Valet parking works perfectly.

                      I am not sure if the a/c/heater was working correctly in my room.

                      Food was good, room was very clean, tidy and modernized.

                      Room was a bit small but it was all we required so still enjoyable.

                      Cost and location

                      The healthy options menu want very good and what I have ordered from it was not healthy - Fried Greasy Egg Whites is not a healthy option. And when I complained and didnt eat it I was charged for it anyway.

                      The hotel was close to the conference and the tramway which is free in the downtown.

                      The lobby/reception area is poorly planned. The neighbourhood is rather scuzzy. There was a rather bizarre conference going on and most of the guests were there for that reason- frankly, it was extremely creepy.

                      We arrived a week earlier than the reservation. Both the Ramada Hotel and Booked.net were fully cooperative in accommodating us and not penalizing us for our mistake. For this we are very grateful!

                      Very good location

                      my kids used to play games on the TV, by the end of our stay I had to pay more than $100 as charges, the receptionist should have told us about these games' issue upon check in, but they never mentioned it.

                      We liked the restaurant in the lobby of the restaurant.

                      We were a little disappointed with the hotel. I thought for the money we should have received alot more than we received. There was no fridge, no other furniture in the room so that if you wanted to sit it was always on the bed,it was your only option. You had to pay extra if you wanted access to internet. I don't think I would stay here again.:(

                      Great service, no problems. Even had a couple beers sitting on the table in room and when we came back from shopping they were all sitting on ice.
