Clean and conveniently located, this hotel works fine. It's a good thing they've made it funky and interesting with unique lighting, colorful wall art, and boutiquey fun attitude, because it balances out an otherwise average property. They've renovated bathrooms and the property is clean and well kept, but dated carpet, decrepit elevator, and motel style room entrances suggest an old... More

I just wanted to take a moment and express my thanks to Hotel Ruby staff, and particularly Brenda. I had a reservation to stay there on the night of the 17th and had an unexpected last minute change in plans. I called the hotel, fully expecting to be charged for the night since it was late afternoon the day of... More

We showed up early in the morning because our train was late. They kindly accepted a late check out. The breakfast was really good. The people at the front desk were really kind and helpfull. The room was clean and the beds comfortable.

This hotel is located in the heart of downtown Spokane. You won't need to get into your car at all. The room we stayed in had two queen beds and was very large. The bathroom was modern and big, as welll. There is self sevice laundry on the property, which we found helpful. The room we had overlooked First Street.... More

Being in the service industry I have been into many different places, but the Ruby lounge's bartendar's service and attention to detail on our martins was top notch!!!! I am sad I never got his name as there is a few that are working there. He hopefully knows that this review is meant for him!

The Hotel Ruby is one of downtown Spokane's best values in lodging. Nice clean rooms and close to everything. The room that we stayed in was a bit small but the bed was very comfortable and everything was nice and modern. I really liked the shower.

We love everything about the Ruby. The heating/air system is quick to respond and never fails to please. It's a quiet, respectful boutique hotel and so near everything downtown. The Davenport Hotel, called Spokane's living room is just across the street and has the best dinner with three courses for only $17.95. On our last visit, we forgot my husband's... More

Hotel Ruby has a great location in downtown Spokane. It is in close walking distance to Riverfront park and a number of great restaurants and shops. The room had great charm with an awesome Blues motif to it. Would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for your kind, honest words about our property. Our location is perfect for downtown excursions, walking around, enjoying the night life, or just staying in and keeping cozy. The artwork here on site is all done by local artists. We have tried to set ourselves apart from the other hotels in the area to provide our guests an... More

I regularly stay at the Hotel Ruby when traveling from Seattle to visit my daughter in Philipsburg, MT. It isn't the cheapest place I can stay, and the rooms are a little small, and the staircase that comes down near the office has a couple of steps of irregular height that I think need to be corrected. But the place... More

I am excited to read this review of our hotel. You hit the head on the nail for everything we try to provide, excellent service, clean and comfortable rooms, great central location, and an excellent bar staff that serves up prohibition style cocktails. Thank you for your time! More
