They have parking avail at the Ruby 2, one block away and free street parking until 8am. Typical for downtown big cities. Breakfast was good for serve yourself... close...

Stayed one night for a concert at Knitting Factory. This location is fantastic as I could walk to and from the concert!! I love the décor of the room. I wanted to steal the shower, that tile was heavenly. The bed was very comfortable. Did not care about exterior sounds of downtown Spokane, as it is to be expected. The...

We stayed last night at this hotel, mostly because of the location. We were going to a show at the Fox theatre and it is one block from the hotel. The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room is updated and comfortable. This is within walking distance of everything downtown. The bed was comfortable and the room...

I returned to Hotel Ruby this Wednesday night, having stayed twice before. I LOVE this Downtown hotel! Rooms are COOL, unique, and comfortable!

My family stays at Hotel Ruby every year we come to do the Bloomsday run. Each year the hotel comes a bit more disappointing. Last year I received a letter for a free night because there were multiple yellow stains on my white bed sheets and long black hair on the folded "clean" towels. The desk reps are usually nice...

I had a room on the 3rd floor with a king sized bed. Room is very nicely decorated and the bathroom is very nice as well. It's a bit cramped, as it, and all the rooms, used to be a motel. If fact, I think it still is a motel... just a damn nice one. Staff is terrific and the...

Stayed there for three nights in the summer. Not much of a breakfast but a friendly atmosphere. It feels a little artistic. The bar is good. The parking in the courtyard is narrow and could be crowded. It's a good, affordable place to stay when in Spokane - walking distance to everything.

Fantastic location and a great value. The staff are friendly, and the bar pours a strong cocktail! The proximity to the train tracks had me worried, but I was never bothered by the noise.
