Eat, sleep, work and play at the Ramada Red Deer

The Ramada Red Deer is conveniently located at the intersection of to the Highway QEII and 11 for business travelers, province-wide meetings and family road trips. They offer room service, spotlessly clean rooms and a fast twisty waterslide. Here’s how to work, play, eat and sleep in comfort at Red Deer’s only Ramada hotel.

Eat

First things first, everybody’s got to eat. Visit the Mohave Grill in the hotel for juicy steaks and southwestern BBQ ribs or order up room service from the restaurant – save room for a Bandito Buttbuster, their signature dessert.

Each morning, fill up on a free breakfast at the upgraded breakfast bar with hot entrees every weekday, plus waffles, pancakes, baking and toast, fruit and hot coffee, tea and cold juice. And since mom will probably need an extra bucket of coffee – make her happy at the on-site Tim Hortons.

Sleep

The Ramada Red Deer has a wide assortment of rooms – book an executive suite with a Jacuzzi, a family suite with bunk beds or ask for their fully wheelchair accessible room. They are all comfy, spacious, modern and super clean – the hotel prides itself on its cleanliness and won a 2014 AHLA housekeeping award.

And each room has a dedicated hi-speed Internet router for a fast and reliable Wi-Fi connection. Business travellers love this – and parents can stream episode after episode of Dora the Explorer for the two-year-old in your party.

Work

Finally get that thumbs-up from your toughie of a boss by booking your next meeting at the Ramada Red Deer. The hotel has two high tech meeting rooms with high speed internet, presentation equipment, on-site catering and lots of fresh air and natural daylight – she’ll like that.

Plus, it’s close to the QEII for co-workers arriving from Edmonton and Calgary – and you can book the hotel’s group shuttle for a company appreciation day of golf while everyone’s together. Pushing my luck, boss?

Play

Kids really like the Ramada’s indoor waterpark with a waterslide, heated pool and hot tub. And big kids – that’s you mom and dad – like all the golf around.

Try Wolf Creek, a Scottish links-style course just 23 minutes from the hotel. Play 36 holes against wild wind, hazardous water traps and concealed bunkers – then join Chef Jake for BBQ at the clubhouse. Contact the Ramada for stay and play packages at six partnering golf courses.
