Positioned to appeal to mid-market leisure and business travelers in both the U.S. and Canada, Ramada hotels offer guests a harmonious blend of comfort and affordability.

Even before you step inside the door, you'll sense the change. From the sign out front, to the newly redesigned logo. Once inside, you'll discover something new around every corner. Upgraded complimentary breakfast, spa-inspired in-room amenities, high-speed Internet access and that's just the beginning. There's no denying it; it's an exciting time here at Ramada. The opportunities are endless. For those who are already a part of the Cendant family, as well as those we'll soon be welcoming into it.

The Ramada brand began in 1954 when a group of investors opened the first Inn in Flagstaff, AZ--the first in a series of "motor hotels." In 1959, the group adopted the name "Ramada," a Spanish word for "a shaded resting place," and sold its first franchise. Since then, the Ramada chain has grown to nearly 900 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Today Ramada is committed to providing excellent service, terrific value and a superior hotel experience. To celebrate the brand's 50th birthday Ramada is getting a makeover, including a new look and feel, centered around the theme "Relax in Style." However, even as we mark our silver anniversary we can't help but feel the best is yet to come!
