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 Malin + Goetz 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, yoga studio, retail boutique, 5,000 square foot health club (next door for a fee) 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.

Chicago 7/31

3.4 on August 07, 2018

Thought there would be a coffeemaker in the kitchen, was disappointed not to find one.


Pretty, but would not stay again

2.2 on April 24, 2018

The room was very cute. However, when I went to dry myself after my shower, I found that the towels were previously used and had not been replaced from the previous room occupant. Then I called and complained and asked for them to be replaced and they brought new towels, but left the dirty towels in the room on the floor. The service people, though, were pleasant. It was very disappointing and nothing was done to offer me something to make up for the fact that I dried myself with some stranger's towel. Gross.

Innkeeper Response
The towels were fresh, but we will indeed make an extra effort to cycle out the ones that are showing signs of wear. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

Ruby room stay

4.6 on April 15, 2018

I liked that there was a smoothie place near by and that I could go straight up to my room after the awesome massage I got from Logan! I think I would have enjoyed having a bath tub in my room though the shower was spacious, clean, and had good water pressure.


Friendly Staff and Relaxing Environment

4.4 on January 28, 2018

The staff are amazing. They go above and beyond to help. It was so relaxing to have a room with no TV! I would definitely recommend this.


Perfect neighborhood option!

4.2 on January 15, 2018

We lived in this neighborhood for several years. This is a great way to go back and experience it again and at a great price. The service was friendly and she he Room was tidy. There was however a space between the sink and wall that had several dust bunnies and potentially a toothbrush that fell as well. More meticulous cleaning would solve this issue. There is no on-site dining so I don’t know why that is an option.


Great alternative to chain hotels for business travel

4.0 on October 23, 2017

Recently stayed here for one night when all downtown hotels were either booked or inflated prices. Great find and convenient to several restaurants. Clean, cute rooms. We never saw the manager or staff, but were given complete information about how to access keys for check in, etc. Would stay here again.


Serene and Relaxing Boutique Hotel

4.2 on September 21, 2017

I love this little hotel for its simplicity and ease of use. The staff are attentive and friendly. It is a small hotel and you don't feel part of the bustle of the city when inside. It is all very quiet, clean, and relaxing. No TVs! No lobby bar. Just a quiet space in the city. Very easy to get around and a cool neighborhood. Have stayed here twice and will be back!


Ruby Room July 2017

3.8 on July 30, 2017

I stayed 4 nights in July 2017. The room was clean, the bed was wonderful. I would come again, but would stay in a room that does not have a window on the fire escape where it would be easy for someone to break in. It is very misleading to say my room had a "private balcony". There is no private balcony. There is a fire escape set of stairs, but that certainly doesn't qualify as a "private balcony" in my book. The workers who checked me in were pleasant and helpful. I would stay again but not on a room by the fire escape.


Relaxing stay

4.0 on July 08, 2017

No frills place with comfortable bed and nice steam showers. Local area has several restaurants within walking distance.


Family visit

3.2 on July 05, 2017

Dining was not onsite but LOTS of local restaurants to choose from within walking distance. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. GREAT location. ONLY drawback is the steep stairs (no elevator).

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).
