About

"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.

Love the Ruby Room and Wicker Park area

3.4 on October 20, 2014

I stayed at the RR twice before, once in 2012, and once in 2013. Both times, wonderful experiences. High points of this time: everything was as expected, was able to obtain key, get to room. This was a smaller room but was very comfortable. Low points: water pressure is abysmal. Also, on previous trips, I was unaware of how thin the walls are. This time, due to the couple in 3C, who were... err..., busy one late night, and another night came back to the hotel late and were just plain loud, I now know the walls are a bit thin. Turned the AC fan on and drowned them out though. All in all, I would recommend the Ruby Room. Very pleasant. Division also has so many restaurants and bars, you will not run out of place to eat.


great location, spa ious room

3.6 on October 16, 2014

No breakfast provided but modest cooking & coffee making facilities. Stairs are steep and were poorly lit on top floor level


Wonderful room and neighborhood

4.0 on October 12, 2014

This wonderful little Inn is a few short blocks from the Division Station off the Blue Line. It was the perfect size with a great bathroom and very clean. The stairs are a bit rough inside, but the back fire escape ones are much easier to navigate. The neighborhood is awesome with many, many cool shops and restaurants nearby. We used the gym next door for free which was a great amenity as well as the salon downstairs for a massage. A great weekend retreat!


A great value in a great neighborhood.

4.0 on October 10, 2014

If I wasn't visiting my son, I would not have needed to leave the neighborhood. Definitely not the cleanest room I've stayed in, but a quiet, inexpensive option in Chicago. I'll stay again.


Great location in Wicker Park

2.6 on October 02, 2014

Front steps were nearly impossible with luggage. Coffee pot in community kitchen could have been more user friendly. Offered premium Aveda toiletries on website in rooms but not in reality. Variety of noises from other rooms like fans; anything dropped on floor and footsteps. but not conversations. Outstanding dining nearby.


Lovely and quaint place to stay in chicago : ) !!

4.0 on October 02, 2014

lovely , adorable little inn in the quaint wicker park neighborhood of chicago - beautiful rooms that feel like home, your own apartment, but with touches of little luxuries here and there. staff is very kind and thoughtful : ) it was so nice to experience another neighborhood in chicago; somewhere less touristy - wicker park and the street where ruby room is located is full of such awesome little bakeries , gourmet ethnic foods too! i would honestly be so happy to stay here any time i come to chicago : )


Chicago gem!

4.6 on September 29, 2014

Ruby Room is the perfect place to stay for anyone wanting a non-touristy, relaxing place to stay in Chicago. The room was very clean, spacious, and filled with beautiful light in the morning. I loved that there was not a TV and a kitchen was available should I need it. I wouldn't call this a bed and breakfast as no food is provided but they do have coffee. Thought it was a great deal, and can't wait to stay there again. Parking was relatively easy, just pay attention to the street signs! The surrounding neighborhood is great as well.


No Need for a TV

4.0 on September 28, 2014

We found a deal on Hotels.com for less than $40/night. We swooped and claimed the room quickly since we're last minute travelers and had less than a week to go, so didn't really know what we'd walk into. The receptionist is located in the wellness store which offers serenity candles and sage smudges, beauty products and spa treatments. We were somewhat disoriented, but graciously surprised. After receiving detailed instructions if we ran into any late night problems (which we didn't), we were guided to the adjacent building to walk up the steep flight of stairs. Gentle reminders suggested that we keep our voice down to accommodate for the relaxing atmosphere, which we abided by. Once we got to our room, it had very nice high end fixtures, the bed was comfy and plush. We then realized, no TV, no telephone. As this is stated in the material, we hadn't realized how it is such a staple in most rooms, but we actually appreciated not having one. Very serene atmosphere inside the room. 1 qualm, the toilet seat needed a wipe down, which is pretty gross. Walking distance to a lot of great bars. We actually watched Monday Night Football at the Anthem in the front outdoor patio,which is just a block away and grabbed a few drinks at the Smoked Daddy. And we walked about a mile and a half to Pequod's for pizza. Great location!!


Great location.

2.8 on September 22, 2014

Great location but they need to go pull it together. They seem eager to run the place more smoothly. I'll be interested to see if that happens.


Really enjoyed our stay

3.8 on August 28, 2014

The Ruby Room does a great job of letting you know exactly what to expect from their hotel. We fond everything to be exactly as it was stated on line. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return! I highly recommend a visit to St. John Cantius Church and breakfast at the Windy City Cafe. We also enjoyed the Black Bull Tapas Restaurant all located within walking distance from the hotel. The current manager is Michelle and she is extremely capable and really knows how to make guests feel welcome. We celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary on the 4th floor of the Ruby Room Inn and will definitely return.
