Sara at the front desk was great! She was knowledgeable about the area and very pleasant and helpful. Room was spotless with comfortable bed and pillows. A/C worked great, nice shower, and clean bathroom. Appreciate a previous reviewer mentioning that there was a power strip under the desk for charging phones, etc. Others also mentioned there is a $5 parking... More

Although it was evident that the room had recently been renovated, there was a distinct odor, I don't know if it was mildew or what, but we had to spray cologne to overcome the odor. The location was good, and the desk staff were outstanding!

Parking was not good. Should make parking lot into pool & build a new lot across the street. Floor needed to be cleaned. All staff was knowledgable & helpful. Easy to find. Surprisingly quiet for location .

My wife and I chose the Ruby2 for a little weekend getaway and it was perfect. The rooms were clean, the beds were fantastic, and everything worked as expected. Very friendly staff as well. Great Service!

Great room & price for our one night stay traveling through town. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was small, but clean. A train does run right beside the hotel throughout the night but they do not blow their horn as they travel above traffic. If you're a light sleeper, the only sound you may hear during the... More

Was very surprised by how cute the place was. Loved the videos of the ballet dancers on the side of the building at night. Very close to everything in the "city". Got a great price break when we booked it a few hous before our stay. But when I go back to Spokane I would pay the full price per... More

Spokane has a great downtown area and the Ruby 2 is perfectly located just behind the much more expensive Davenport Tower to take advantage of it. The surrounding area is so bike friendly and because we were travelling with our bikes we took advantage of the options offered by the Centennial Trail system. The Ruby 2 does offer their own...

Spent one night at the Ruby 2 Hotel in Spokane WA. Turned out to be very good value for the money. Don't judge the place by it's exterior, it doesn't look great but the rooms have all been remodeled & updated. Easy walking distance to downtown Spokane shopping and restaurants. Overnight parking $5.00 vs. $22.00 at the fancy hotel next... More
