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.

Ruby Room - great place to stay

4.0 on April 12, 2016

Always clean. Great neighborhood. Easy walk to many restaurants and bars. Plenty of room. Kitchen access if you want to eat in or a place to keep your leftovers. Not a B&B but plenty of places to get a great breakfast nearby. The only negative for some would be the winding stairs - no elevator.


Just right for the price

We had a fun time at Ruby Room. The room was comfortable and we enjoyed getting away from computers and TVs for a night and just talking to each other and dancing to the CD music.

Quiet and peaceful. Coffee maker a little tricky. A little expensive. Great haircut (Katie) and psychic reading. (Mallory) no dining on site.


Relaxing Stay

3.6 on September 24, 2015

We had come to Ruby Room a couple years ago and decided to go there for our wedding night and weekend. The staff is great and the beds are so comfortable. The room we got this time was not as nice as the room we got last time. Just small and for some reason all of our fixtures were loose, for example the top of the glass top night table wasn't tightened and tipped causing things to spill and fall. Nothing damaged but...unexpected and odd. I would advice calling to make a reservation, that way you will get the room you want, their online booking is confusing. The Garden entrance room wasn't really worth it since the garden didn't seem to be set up really, i.e. hardly any plants and not really a place we wanted to hang out. The massages we got were amazing and just what we needed to relax! Still love the Ruby Room!

This is the second year we have stayed at The Ruby Room, and it was amazing as always. The staff is FANTASTIC and will find any way to help and accommodate your needs. Cute room, super comfy bed, great location.

The room was beautiful, very clean and comfortable. Kind of missed having a TV in the room, but wasn't so bad. Even though there was a small kitchenette on the floor, there was no access to ice, soda, etc. The 3 flights of stairs to my room was difficult, especially when carrying my bags, etc. I assumed there would be an elevator. Street parking was a problem too, circling the blocks for 30 minutes. All and all, a very comfortable bed, nicely decorated room!


Not the best

2.8 on July 16, 2015

Loved the Wicker Park neighborhood, but hated the long hike up the narrow stairs (no elevator) to our room on the fourth floor. The bed was comfortable, and the shower great. But all in all, not worth the more than $200 a night we spent for the two-day stay. There's no TV,which management says is to give us a respite from the distractions of daily life. Give me a break. If I want a break from TV, I won't press the "on" button. This was a one-time stay for us. There won't be a return engagement.


Great spot and room.

My fiance and I stayed here while we were in Chicago for work and pleasure. The room was wonderful and larger than expected. The bed, linens and bathroom were great! We stayed in room 3D and was nice and quiet and had an exterior door to the fire escape which was very nice. The room has old charm but has been very nicely updated. The kitchen down the hall was a nice bonus since we are big coffee drinkers. They had an insulated coffee pot that we could brew and take to our room. Similar to other reviews, there is no elevator and narrow stairs. This wasn't a problem for us, but some people may have a problem getting upstairs with big or heavy bags. Also, there is no TV in the room, again not an issue for us since we don't watch much TV but some folks would be bothered by that. Spa was great, we both got massages and they had good service, a little odd for check in and out since they are open from 10am to 7pm. The spa is the Inn's front desk also. We flew in late so that was fine, but a very laid back place to stay. Also quite a few really great restaurants on the same street. Great coffee shop just 4 stores down and a nice Tapas bar on the same block. I put a review on the onsite dining, because it is in the heart of tons of restaurants on the same block. We will stay here again for sure on the next work trip!


Nice stay

Dining is low only because there was no onsite dining. The room was very nice.

There are far too many excellent restaurants in our neighborhood for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night snacks. We are located directly on "restaurant row". We are happy to point you in the right direction based on your tastes from comfort food to fine dining to vegetarian to some of the best steaks in the world (no kidding).
