Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Perhaps it was the off season timing, but I found the value of this well located, attractive boutique hotel in downtown Spokane to be outstanding! For about the same price as a dreary and sometimes unclean budget motel on a highway at the outskirts of a town, staying in this stylish, well detailed and clean boutique hotel in the heart...

Location was great, close to downtown shops and venues. Hotel staff was friendly and willing to work with early check-in. Room was small but clean and served its purpose. We didn't have a car but it looked like parking was limited.

We booked here to see a show that was less than a block away. Stayed 2 nights. Was able to park in their lot the first night, but the night of the show, we left for dinner a couple hours before and when we got back, no where to park. Had to park in the 'overflow' parking garage a block...

Dear Jennifer A, Thank you for sharing your experience. Unfortunately we were given a small lot, but attaining the overflow lot gave us the ability to provide parking for our guests.

I ran to Spokane for an overnight shopping trip and wanted to be walking distance to downtown shops. This is a nice place at a reasonable price. It is just about right across the street from the Knitting Factory concert venue and a block down from the great Guilded Unicorn. The room is clean and quiet (I stayed on the...

The rooms were nice and the decor was up to date. Felt safer with the locked gates, it is downtown Spokane. The Location is great, there were so many interesting, swanky places close by to check out. Bars, restaurants and shops all close by.

A modest Priceline bid delivered the Ruby . It's an apparent 50s era place that has been renovated to take advantage of the quirky charm of the era. It's older but clean and renovations are still in good condition. Parking is tight, I arrived early and had a spot, late comers might not be so lucky, but can park a...

Another wonderful stay in downtown Spokane at the Ruby. It has maintained it's high standards for comfort, chic, and affordability since our last stay. Check in was friendly and seamless, and the location just can't be beat. Our room was spotless, cozy, and perfect for a romantic night away from the kiddos. Kudos to fast wifi, as well. I would...

My wife told me what to title this review. But I do agree with her. It was very nicely decorated and quite quaint. This definitely used to be an older style motel, but they have done an amazing job renovating it and turning it into something pretty special. The artwork in the lobby and the rooms was beautiful. It seemed...

Considering that the goal for the trip was to stay close to the knitting factory, the hotel ruby wound up being a nice surprise given the value and fun chic retro vibe going on. The service was great and I didn't expect it to be a high-end hotel given the area. Sure it's not super plush but the bed was...

This boutique hotel is decorated so cute I just had to like it! The guy working at the front desk was very nice and ever so helpful. The location was great because we were able to walk to a lot of place. But, the room itself is why the prices are so affordable. It was tiny and smelled old and...
