We were looking for an inexpensive room (using Hotwire) in the city and found the Ruby Room. The website says 'not a hotel, not a B&B'. It was different and won't be right for everyone. Pros: Clean, quiet, very nice bathroom, very comfortable bed, warm, cozy Cons: No elevator meant climbing several flights of steep, curving stairs with my suitcase.... More

We wanted to stay in Wicker Park to be away from peak tourist areas but close enough. It was a quick 10 minute L ride to downtown which was great. We loved the area as there were great restaurants and nightlife everywhere. The Ruby Room staff have very good suggestions around the area. We highly recommend Mana Food Bar. The... More

I suddenly found I needed to travel to Chicago and desired to stay in Wicker Park. I had stayed in the Ruby Room before and was well satisfied with it's accommodations and spa services. Unfortunately, the only room available for my 4 night stay was the Garden Room, a separate building down the alley from the main entrance. I knew... More

My stay at Ruby Room was great. It was exactly what I expected based on the Trip Advisor photos and reviews I'd read. The room was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was great about answering all my questions and making sure I was all set with everything I needed. Parking was easy. The location was perfect for me,... More

We booked my mother-in-law into the Ruby Room for a long weekend. When we checked into the room, there was trash on the nightstand from a previous guest, the smoke detector seemed to have been pulled from the ceiling, and the bathroom lights didn't work. In addition, we paid about an extra $100 for this room based on the description... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights here while visiting our son who lives in Wicker Park. Room was very nice and clean. Bed super comfy and bathroom with steam shower a plus. We were in 3 C that faced Division and found it to be not noisy at all. The room had no TV which I considered a plus... More

I lived in Wicker Park many moons ago and was thrilled to find the Ruby Room. The room was cute, clean and very comfortable. No tv, but no big deal. Only downside was hauling my wife's bag up four flights of narrow steps. Staff was super friendly and held our bags for a few hours after we checked out. If... More

Our daughter who lives in Chicago thought we'd enjoy staying at this boutique hotel in Wicker Park. We did really enjoy the area, but the hotel, not so much. First, the stairs. Staying on the top floor meant we were away from the noisy street, but this was the steepest, narrowest staircase we've ever seen in a hotel. And of... More

I stayed a night at this fabulous little gem found smack down in the Wicker Park area! Within walking distance to tons of local shops, boutiques, and restaurants. The room was amazing and quiet and romantic. No TV or phone and just a very peaceful place. The hotel also has a cool store beneath it selling candles and lotions and... More
