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.

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.


Planning to go back!

4.0 on August 21, 2014

We had no idea what the Ruby Room would be like - pictures were limited and websites tend to make things seem better than reality. We were totally pleased with the Ruby Room and even decided to stay another night. The room was clean and the bed/pillows were super comfortable! We didn't miss a tv and enjoyed the peacefulness. It is located just 2 blocks from the subway. Restaurants are close by - we had everything we needed within walking distance. We plan to go back. Highly recommend this place!


Very enjoyable stay

We have visited the Ruby Room several times and love it. I only put dining as unsatisfactory because it is not offered there. Will stay at Ruby Room again!!

Ruby room a real gem

4.8 on August 04, 2014

Clean and quiet refuge in the city while still in the heart of the action.


GREAT find in Wicker Park! definitely recommend

My daughter found this place as we were coming to visit her in Wicker Park. Loved the location and the fact that it is self service ( almost). Clean and comfortable - just sorry we didn't have time to enjoy any of the spa offerings.


Lovely....delightful escape.

Part of the intrigue of the Ruby Room is what they're all about (escape) and the almost mysterious element of it...in through a side door, with a view toward a healing garden...then up the steep stairs...truly to an escape where you feel nurtured and safe. The rooms are luxuriously simple and clean, and the bathrooms are fantastic. Amazing what they've done with those, given the age of the building. Small touches are well appointed, too. Really enjoyed my stay there. Treated myself to a wash/condition/blowout and a signature candle before departing, in keeping with special and luxurious.


Perfect!

Even though this is not a full-service hotel (we actually prefer the privacy that comes with this) and there is no on-site dining, we were lacking for nothing and there's an abundance of outstanding dining options in the immediate vicinity. The locations is outstanding and very convenient to many things, including our Chicago family that we come to visit. This will be our "go-to" place for all future visits! Thanks!


Relaxing escape in a hip area of Chicago

4.8 on June 28, 2014

I walked in intrigued by the spa and shop. The staff was kind and knowledgeable about the healing stones and essential oils. They squeezed me in for the most amazing facial. I decided to stay in town one more night instead of driving home in the rainstorm. The room was clean and comfortable. I had my choice of multiple restaurants walking distance. I was alone but felt safe. It would be fun to share this experience w/ a lover, friend or family.


Great value

4.8 on May 20, 2014

On a recent trip to Chicago we booked a 4 night stay at the Ruby Room. It was conveniently located close to where our son lives. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The shower in the adjoining bathroom was wonderful. While guests there my husband and I scheduled one hour massages which were very good and worth every penny. The area is surrounded with great shops and restaurants. When we travel to Chicago the next time we will definitely book the Ruby Room again.Kevin and Kathleen, Kansas City, Missouri
