"Unbeatable location for the price"

Too bad there wasn't a refrigerator and microwave because they would of enhanced my 7 night stay. All-in-all I was quite pleased with the facility and staff. The breakfast provided was adequate and I ate there each morning before my adventures for the day.

Hotel stay on 09/22/09 Ramada Inn Vanc

The hotel was easy to locate. It was close to the cruise ship terminal in Vancouver which was our final destination. The room was great. It was clean and quiet. The bed was excellent. The breakfast bar was great as well. I would stay at this hotel again and use your service as well.

Great pre-cruise location

This place is in easy walking distance to lots of restaurants and retail. The staff is very helpful to travelers. They provided us with maps of the area and showed us where things were on the map. They even had spare umbrellas for us to use. The building is a charming little place along a storefront. We stayed here the night before sailing out of Canada Place Pier. I would recommend it to fellow cruisers, or anyone with a need to be downtown without a car.

Excellent service, not a great view

The staff was very courteous and helpful. There were a large number of free brochures about the city and local attractions, and the staff was knowledgeable in that respect. We were also able to walk to the sunset beach from this location, though it may be more walking than most people are comfortable with. Our room was very close to the ice maker, which we heard very clearly several times throughout our stay. The room also faced another wall - it was about 3 feet away, and had no other view. At least there wasn't another window looking back! The hotel will take US currency, but will charge about a 10% premium in the process of doing the conversion. Also, the valet parking was $25, and you can only retrieve your car before 5pm. However, they will hold your luggage for free, for as long as you want, and you can pick it back up during any time of the day. The location: there were quite a few vagabonds in the area, so the ongoing recommendation is to not leave any valuables in your vehicle, so be aware of that when you visit. (The hotel staff will remind you before you leave your car with the valet.)

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a currency exchange location in Canada Place (a short walk from Pender and Richard's street) that had pretty good rates exchanging US currency into Canadian. While we were there, we saw rates ranging from $1 US to $1 CAD (like at the hotel and at restaurants) to $1 US to $1.07 CAD (at this place). Other common rates were $1 US to $1.04 CAD. If you exchange your currency before you do any shopping, you'll save not only in actual US dollars (which most stores will take, but without any discount), but also in credit card fees, which can hurt.

Pleasant and Convenient Hotel

The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room did not have a view except for a wall. Cleanliness was somewhat of an issue. The air conditioning unit was extremely dusty - air flow vents and intake. Breakfast was served in the basement area of the building. The day we were there the room was quite warm bordering on uncomfortable. Perhaps the air condition unit was broken. I don't know. Would I stay there another time? Perhaps, if I had a room with a view, not a wall. Price wise - good deal. The location was great. The hotel was close to Gas Town and the port. The taxi ride to the cruise port was not long at all and not expensive.

Excellent value

While not in the greatest location it is very close to Chinatown, Gastown and the wharf. The rooms are clean and the service was very good. This represented excellent value.
