Ramada Hotels

The Ramada hotel chain was founded in 1954 by a well-established restaurateur in Chicago - Marion W. Isbell. The name "Ramada" is taken from the Spanish term "rama", meaning "branch" - implying a shady resting place. The company has since diversified, catering across the spectrum - from inns and plazas to hotels and resorts. No matter what you're looking for, Ramada has pretty much got it covered.
