Unexpected upgrades will always bias my reviews, and this upgrade was magnificent. We arrived after the 7 pm desk closure, but were given excellent directions on parking and security to get to our upgraded garden suite for a two night stay. The ground-level room was incredibly spacious, boasting 4 beds, separated by partial walls and a large kitchen in a...

I would like to say that Kenny was really helpful and courteous upon checking-in. Before I proceed with my review I have to say I am a bit spoiled especially when I travel so not having a TV or working radio or conditioner in the shower (it was empty) is not a good place for me stay at to begin...

On our one or two night stays for a specific event in Chicago, we usually stay in a hotel. Not finding anything available in our price range this time, we cast a wider net, and to our good fortune, found The Ruby Room. It was conveniently located just several easy walking blocks to The Subterranean, our destination for an indie...

We were in Chicago this past weekend for a wedding, and Ruby Room ended up being a perfect location. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and dancing all happened in the outdoor space out back, and the banquet happened upstairs. For an even this size (50 people), Ruby Room was absolutely perfect! It provided an intimate feel and the perfect space. We...

We have stayed at the Ruby Room on several occasions and have loved, loved, loved every single time. The showers are incredible (steam shower!) and the beds are so comfortable. We love the neighborhood and how unique all the toiletries and accommodations are. This is a place to go to recharge your soul and relax and feel pampered! Love it!

It was nice to stay somewhere other than a hotel. We stayed two nights in room 3D. The bed was great! The room was not super clean as I dropped something that went under the bed and when I went to pick it up there was kleenex and fuzzies under the bed. The shower did not have much water pressure...

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....

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...

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...

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,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Best in the City" - Chicago Magazine.Ruby Room Hotel & Spa is one of Chicago's most unique overnight destinations. Just 8 minutes from downtown, in the heart of historic Wicker Park's restaurant, shopping and nightlife scene.Modeled in the European tradition, Ruby Room is neither a hotel nor a traditional B&B. Our concept is that of relaxation. By design, we do not offer telephones or televisions. We do not offer 24 hour reception or bellman services. We make a practice of not entering your room during your stay, unless requested. Ruby Room is a historic property and does not offer an elevator. Please keep this in mind, if you or any of your guests have a challenge with mobility. What we do offer are outrageously comfortable pillow top mattresses with 500 thread count linens, large marble and glass showers, 4 of which are equipped with commercial steam units along with complimentary AVEDA products. Crown molding and fine woodworking throughout. Modern furniture peppered with antiques, new community kitchen, gorgeous garden with waterfall and all a part of a day spa, hair salon, yoga studio, two retail boutiques, 5,000 square foot health club and a serene healing sanctuary. If you're looking for something super clean and relaxing, we offer a restful room attached to a unique spa in a super cool neighborhood. Your peace is our passion. ... more   less
