Very beautiful hotel with a studied artistic design. Situated near the downtown, the room is just rather big. The bed is cosy and comfortable. Furniture has narrow and a painting decorates every room. The continental lunch is excellent with a lot of varieties. To recommend.

My room, with a queen size bed was small, but well remodeled. The bathroom (walk-in shower) sparkled, the bed was comfortable, and the necessities were all there - flat screen TV, clock radio, enough electrical outlets, closet, iron and hair dryer. This is an older (former motel) building across the street from the Davenport Hotel, at 1/3 the price of... More

Whatever the hotel used to be, they have remodeled the property with a lot of color, art and SO convenient to everything downtown! The rooms are clean, good beds, nice new comforters, and overall perfect for a quick stay in otherwise pricey neighborhood hotels. They offer a complimentary breakfast in their small but quaint bar area. The staff is very... More

We have been delighted with our rooms at the Ruby. The rooms are comfy and attractive, and the staff is very friendly. One word of caution, be prepared for some street noise if you get room 101. Otherwise, the Ruby is fabulous. And for the right price.

Stayed for 1 overnight- er, wonderful hotel and staff! Wish we could have stayed a few extra days. Elyssa at the front desk was a gem!! So friendly and accommodating! Definitely a people person. Don't know what they pay her, but the hotel would not be the same without her. Very funky hotel with lots of art and character. You... More

The hotel is satisfactory & modern, there's an elevator for luggage, a swinging cocktail bar, efficient check-in, cheap parking ($5/night). The only problem is the odor of nearly candy (?!) in the room. Also, you get full force water for your shower, & it's _not_ adjustable. Good service, location & breakfast.

You're feedback is appreciated - we are grateful that you took the time to comment on our little hotel. We are so glad you liked it and the cocktail bar as well!! Occasionally our housekeepers use an all-natural deorderizing spray to freshen the air, but I have asked them to use it rarely and sparingly. My apologies that is was... More

Great little place in the heart of downtown Spokane is an older motel remodeled and artfully tweaked for guests with budget rather than luxury as their priority. Not all the rooms have had the bathrooms updated so best to ask about that. Windows only front the centre courtyard/parkade so airflow can be an issue. Great staff and very nice complimentary...

This hotel is located in the heart of everything ‘old,’ which is exactly what we like, and what makes Spokane so intriguing. There is plenty to see and do within walking distance, including playhouses, theatres, restaurants, River Park Square shopping centre and the beautiful Riverfront Park. The last time we stayed here was 19 years ago, under the Rodeway Inn... More

We stayed here for one night in late August. What a great place for the money! It was quiet, clean and nicely decorated. The location could not have been better as there were plenty of resturants and shopping close by. I did like that we were in an end suite so that we could leave our blinds open and didn't... More

Just what we wanted--walking distance to most everything downtown, including River Park Square and the Park. Smallish rooms, but very well remodeled; very comfortable King-sized bed, with nice bedding. Very good a/c. Bathroom is small, but very adequate, with a large sink/vanity area inside, and a smaller sink/vanity just outside the bathroom. Usual microwave/fridge. OK closet. All very clean. Wi-fi... More
