Ramada is a large hotel chain owned and operated by Wyndham Hotel Group. The Ramada brand was created in Flagstaff, Arizona, in 1954. In the U.S., Ramada properties are classified under three tiers: Limited, Inns, and Plaza hotels, and in April 2018, the "by Wyndham" moniker was added to the name. Ramada Limited hotels are budget-oriented properties, offering high-quality accommodations at value prices. Guests enjoy free continental breakfast and swimming pools at most locations. Ramada Inn and Ramada Plaza hotels operate as midscale, mid-priced, full-service properties; amenities include swimming pools at most locations, onsite restaurants or a-la-carte food/beverage items, business services, meeting space, and fitness rooms.
