The location and price of this hotel is what initially interested us. I must admit we were pleasantly surprised with how well done the hotel is, super artsy with a great lounge. The shower was huge and amazing. Would recommend, and will be back!

I just loved all the cool little features of this hotel. The unique furnishings, lamps, artwork, led lights in the sidewalk. Very fun!

Great location, within walking distance of all downtown music venues, food etc. Get there early, the parking lot is tiny and not adequate for the hotel size, once you park keep your car parked and walk. They do offer parking a block away at their other hotel if you don't get a parking spot onsite. This Hotel feels like a... More

The hotel Ruby is downtown Spokane. It is fairly close to the airport however does not have a shuttle to the airport. The hotel also has very limited parking.

This was an very nice hotel. You could tell the rooms had receny been done. The modern decor was nice. The construction was a bit distracting, but that was happening everywhere in downtown Spokane. I would have liked to see more fruit options and flavored cream at breakfast.

I loved the Ruby! It was recommended by a friend who'd stayed there previously. I loved the quirky decor--my room had Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany's, and there were twinkle fairy lights embedded in the sidewalk by the bar.

The bathroom floor and fixtures were dirty. We opted not to shower. There is very limited parking and our car was blocked overnight. The walls are thin and we were woken up several times. Good location, but you get what you pay for.
