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!!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

The room was nice but did not have a reading area as advertised. Bed was very comfortable. Outside door to building was never locked. Great location with lots of interesting shops and restaurants.

I read a bunch of reviews before settling on the Ruby room. The reviews were either very good or very bad. After staying there I can understand why. The Ruby Room is not a typical hotel, its very boutiquish and quite unusual. If a patron is expecting a 15'x30' room with two queensize beds, a TV a night stand and a desk, this place isn't for you! I came to Chicago to run the Marathon last Sunday. I didn't have a problem with the stairs. When we walked in the room the first thing out of my wifes mouth was "this place is great, you done good picking this one." The room was very comfortable, large enough for my gear and all our clothes, The steam shower was fantastic. the bed was comfortable. Coming from a construction background the renovations were well done. The location was perfect, the blue line was only 6 stops to the centre of town, which was excellent for getting to the start of the marathon and also wonderful for doing sight seeing on the other days we were there. I really liked the neighbourhood, very hip. For coffee Caffe Streets was awesome, the people at the Alliance bakery were brilliant, we had two great meals steps from the Ruby room. The Tappas place was very good and a couple of blocks up the street Prisano was excellent. In summing up DONT GO THERE IF YOU WANT TO STAY AT THE Marriot or the Sheraton. If you have a physical disablity probably not the best place either. if you are looking for a cool, quiet, clean, reasonably priced place to stay this would be a good choice. By the way ran my best marathon ever.
