my kind of place but it may not be yours, please read the other reviews. I'm usually visiting friends when I stay here for the weekend and we take advantage of the bars downstairs. I've stayed in several of the rooms and these pictures are of my favorite.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. Very friendly staff, great breakfast choices, good-safe walking distance to the city, happy hour w/ 2 drinks per person was great too..the only complaint I had was that it was rather noisy b/c it is on the corner facing a major roadway. I would stay here again.

Outstanding place to stay. Not your normal bed & breakfast. This was our third stay here in two years and we love it. Free drinks (2) in the bar downstairs and great selection of breakfast items from the deli downstairs too. The staff is exceptionally accommodating. They went out of their way to get us a round table and extra... More

Change of plans had us stopping in Madison on the way home to Ohio. We were pleasantly surprized to find this historic hotel. First thing they did was upgrade our room free of charge with a window view of the lake. Also a wonderful breakfast buffet at the downstairs deli went with the room. A very pleasant young man was...

The Ruby Marie isn't your run of the mill B&B. I think people saw the "quaintness" and thought-- aww.. how adorable.. sweet... and quiet. I have stayed at the Ruby Marie on more than trip, and I have had a great experience both times. I have been there with my partner enjoying a well deserved get away and the location... More

Nine girls ages thirtyish stayed at the rubie for a bachelorette overnight stay. The rooms were so cute, vintage decor and comfortable. One of our rooms had a wet bar, a fireplace and a killer shower. A bit out of the way but something more unique then the concourse and the Hilton. Great value. Charming. Clean. Very accommodating. Support the... More

I had such a good time here. First, it's walkable to the downtown stuff and yet there is a free parking lot. The person at the front desk was very friendly and informative. The hotel has a historic past, which is evident by the decor, but it still has modern conveniences. They use card keys, and there is free wifi... More

I had a great experience in my one-night stay at Ruby Marie. The staff were friendly, the room had nice old-fashioned furniture, the windows overlooked the lake. Very comfortable bed - may have been a pillow-top. The bathroom had better-than-usual fixtures. The breakfast options were casual but plentiful. We walked from Ruby Marie to all the State Street restaurants and... More

This hotel is, indeed, darling. The rooms are beautifully restored, and decorated in a charming Victorian style. The bathrooms are new, clean, and very nice. The problem was that I was not very comfortable there. My sister and her husband had a room with two double beds that was quite nice, and I can't speak to their comfort, but in... More

This is a super charming hotel. The restored vintage vibe is done very well. It's super clean, quiet, and comfortable. Close to everything in downtown Madison. I've stayed twice now when in town for music concerts and look forward to another opportunity to stay there. Oh, and the complimentary breakfast in the Lakeview cafe was waaaay better than any chain... More
