Overall had a relatively problem free stay and enjoyed the character of the hotel. The downtown location and access to the attached bar was a major plus. The only issue was with limited parking. The Hotel Ruby does offer additional parking at their second location a block and a half away. Not a huge issue but worth noting. My wife... More

Loved this funky hotel with a great feel. The location is brilliant - walking distance to Riverside Park and the downtown mall. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom renovated well. The older style set up of the building was a blast from the past. Locating the ice machine was a bit difficult as was making a cup of tea... More

The rooms are adorable (by that I mean small), but pack all you need into the modest and well-updated space. As a Spokane resident, it was great to see a former flea-bag turned into a trendy, safe, and super-convenient hotel. We stayed there for both my husband and I's 20-year high school reunions in order to be walking distance from... More

Had to walk through a sketchy neighborhood because of insufficient parking. They charge $5 to park, but don't count on getting a parking space in the evening! We had to park two blocks away at Ruby 2.

We have stayed at the Hotel Ruby four times when we come to Spokane for various music events. Great location, love the vintage feel. Parking can be a pain, but the hotel is conveniently located for downtown excursions. Request a room with a remodeled bathroom as the others are sub par.

Hotel Ruby is a centrally located hotel in downtown Spokane. Being right down the street from the famed Davenport Hotel, you can have a Davenport like location without the Davenport like price-tag. It is within easy walking distance to great dining, shopping and numerous other activities. The rooms are smaller than one may be used to, but are quite comfortable.... More

This hotel is well appointed for a mid-range hotel and is our go-to when we come to Spokane. It is close to the trains, which can be a drag, but in general it's a great spot. We will gladly stay here again.

I read all the reviews before coming so I was prepared. But the trains were not as loud as some claimed, and parking was not an issue as we came early. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was awesome. Location amazing. Bar very cool. Only complaint was bad drinks by inexperienced bartenders, but they made up for it by being... More

We found this hotel on Yelp and were very impressed. The service was friendly and professional, the decor fanciful and cool, the room was large, clean and comfortable. Location is in the center of downtown--walkable to everything. We would definitely stay there again!

This is a great little spot to stay. It's located in a great area that is only blocks away from great food, and entertainment of the downtown area. Has a nice little lounge and the overall place is modern, clean, and friendly. My only issue was the traffic noise and early morning construction. But the construction noise is only temporary...
