COVID-19 canceled A LOT this year so my husband and I decided to have a little getaway to Madison, WI to visit some breweries and antique malls (while wearing a mask and staying socially distant of course). We stayed at the Hotel Ruby Marie because we love quaint B & B's and historic boutique hotels. We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this charming little hotel. COVID-19 precautions are in place which made the stay a little different. Prior to arriving Dillon gave us instructions that we would need to check-in with the bartender from the Up North bar if we arrived after 2:30pm...we got a kick out of that. We were also told that our room would not be serviced during our stay. I asked Dillon for extra towels and wash-cloths since that would be the case and he remembered my request and gave us plenty. The room was very clean. There was even hand sanitizer in the room...nice pandemic touch! They have an excellent protocol in place for cleaning the rooms between guests...after it's been used they don't even enter the room for 24 hours! For breakfast we were treated to the Lakeview Bakery & Deli. Normally the Lakeview is closed on the weekends but Audrina came in and made meals for the hotel guests. The food was yummy and Audrina was a delight! She even gave us cookies to enjoy later in our room and cookies for our road trip home! Love Wisconsin hospitality! Thank you innkeeper Joshua for a really nice stay! It was a much needed pandemic getaway!

Love the building and beautiful detail. We enjoyed the Christmas decorations and antique furniture lining your halls and room. What a very special place to have stayed at to listen to a favorite band that got back together for a one time performance. The Up North bar was right on the first floor....another favorite. What was also a huge plus is the parking area and at no cost. I don't believe Madison offers this too often so close to the square/downtown. We shall return. Thank you Hotel Ruby Marie☺

I love the Hotel Ruby Marie! The building is beautiful, and my room was lovely and clean. They provide real cream for your morning coffee, complimentary bottles of water, a drink ticket to the Up North bar, a delicious complimentary breakfast at the bakery, and free parking in the lot behind the hotel. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. I wish I'd booked a longer stay!

Stayed here with my wife and three other couples for a weekend stay in Madison. I can’t say enough good things about our stay here. The included breakfast is fantastic. Free drink per person per night, and great decor. Two restaurants and three bars on the property makes it very convenient and the staff at all of them were great. Rooms are spacious and well appointed and the beds we found to be very comfortable. Highly recommend. Check this place out.
