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

Ruby 2 is a perfect combination of price, convenience and comfort. Convenience: Ruby 2 is in downtown Spokane and within walking distance of just about anything you need down there. It has its own parking area so you don't have to leave your car far away. Comfort: Ruby 2's rooms were cozy and well-decorated. Someone with a bit of an... More

Great place, location and cost. Newly remodeled and just reopened. Had a beautiful walk-in tiled shower. Will stay there again the next time when in town. Be forewarned that a train passes by the hotel a couple times a day (but that didn't bother us). The breakfast included waffles, english muffins, cereal, oatmeal, oj, coffee and milk (no fresh fruit).... More

I am so happy that your stay with us was pleasant. Our rooms were renovated with our guests in mind, I am glad you enjoyed the new showers. A train does pass by the hotel a few times during the day, but the frequency of them does drop by a sizable amount at night. We try to provide a menu... More

I travel to Spokane often and I have stayed here twice. It is my new go to place when I am staying in Spokane. Rooms are clean and comfortable, very friendly staff and close to anything you want to do downtown. It has a very retro feel and is cost effective based on similar places nearby.

Last week, my sweetie and I stayed downtown to enjoy our daughter's wedding. Making plans and thinking of that "mother of the bride" budget I was working with, we decided to try something different, new and affordable. New meant trying Ruby2, a slick little renovation of a classic "motor hotel" right in the heart of Spokane's Arts District. And what... More

Very nice hotel. Location is good. Rooms are nicely appointed. Breakfast is good. The front desk was friendly and helpful with directions. There is nothing wrong with the Ruby 2 Hotel. I definitely will consider this hotel for my next trip to Spokane.
