We stayed here to attend a concert nearby at the Fox Theatre. Best bed I've ever slept on in a hotel (I want to find out where they got their beds and comforters). You cannot beat the location and price to walk all over downtown. Good parking. Within walking distance to concert venues, restaurants and pubs. Older hotel, but completely... More

We stayed there the night of a big show at The Fox, and some people may not be thrilled with it, but I personally liked the no smoking policy where the smokers had to walk to the other side of the parking lot to do it. Nothing against smokers, I am just an ex smoker that is really sensitive to... More

Recently refurbished 52 unit hotel just offf I 90...what a delightful surprise! Recently refurbished, with local artists used to provide the huge exterior art pieces... and clean, comfy room furnishings. We booked thru booking.com (sorry travel,advisor!). But was so pleased by the friendly staff and the warm, artsy feel of the place, I decided to share the news. Definately an... More

I just booked for our 4th stay in 12 months at Ruby2. We prefer Ruby2 over Ruby. It's quieter (other than the train, but that doesn't bother us since we live near one) and you have a better shot at getting a parking spot near your room. We stay there when attending a concert or show in downtown Spokane. We've... More

Great location at a great price. The rooms are all freshly remodelled. Seems like virtually everything is brand new. Comfortable bed, even had a little fridge. The only downside to it was that it was kinda close to the train tracks, so you do end up hearing them passing, but after a couple went by I had tuned them out... More

Room was nice and clean. Very comfy beds, Would have liked a coffee maker in room since I am an early riser and front desk didn't have any made before 6am. Shower head not so great. Convenient location. Some train noise at night but not intolerable.

The location was perfect for me since I had a wedding to go to at the Davenport. I was by myself and felt safe walking to & from the hotel. My room was clean,fresh and upbeat looking. The staff was nice. I enjoyed the artistic murals outside and the projection of the dancer on the wall. I wanted to use... More

Very nice place and excellent location. Can't really beat the price and location; contemporary room features, comfortable....it was NYE, so there was a moment when things were a bit loud , but that's to be expectd anywhere . Would definitely recommend - within walking distance to all the conveniences/shopping/bars/restaurants you'd ever want .

Me and some friends stayed there for a night and for the time i stayed it was a decent hotel. The only downfall was they were still remodeling so for the continental breakfast we would of had to walk to the other Ruby hotel down the street. And i don't think we should have to pay for parking if we... More

Thank you for the great review! Our breakfast room is now complete, so no more walking over to Hotel Ruby! We do think our $5 parking is a great deal compared to the other downtown hotels, some of which start at $15 a night, but we will take your comments under consideration! We are glad you enjoyed your time with... More
