"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.

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.

We love staying here at the Ruby Room. The rooms are clean and peaceful. The staff is friendly and the spa is beautiful. The location is conveniently located just a few blocks from the blue line and loads of great restaurants are within walking distance or a short "L" ride away...can't miss the Bongo Room for breakfast! Thank you again Ruby Room and we hope to see you again soon! :)

My husband and I had a wonderful time! The Ruby Room was calm, clean and relaxing. The staff was professional and pleasent. Sarah made us feel welcome and explained how the Spa could enhance our 2 night stay. My favorites: the steam shower (looove!!) the fluffy King sized bed and the almond croissants from the bakery across the street. Heaven! We will be back.

Pros: - awesome steam shower - super comfortable king size bed - quiet with no television or phone (perfect to get away from it all..) - located in a great neighborhood with plenty of shopping/dining to choose from Cons: - no breakfast (but there is a kitchenette stocked with coffee!) - no designated parking (just street parking) - steep spiraling staircase
