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.

Great stay at Ruby Roon

This is the perfect place to discover Chicago!


Great Room No Services

3.4 on September 27, 2016

Wonderful rooms on busy Division Street; steep stairs to reach them. Super comfortable bed, thoughtfully planned bathroom. A small table/desk would be helpful. We enjoyed our stay, but the entire staff of the place was absent the first two days we were there (they said an emergency -- we thought someone had died -- but actually they were having a staff retreat). We couldn't get extra towels, couldn't get into the kitchen, couldn't reach anyone by phone. Great room but seems like a weird way to run a lodging establishment. Probably doesn't happen very often -- recommend this place if you're v. independent and comfortable with stairs.


Wicker Park Weekend

4.2 on September 01, 2016

Excellent location within walking distance of shops and restaurants. We stayed on the fourth floor, where we enjoyed the spacious room, high ceiling, comfy bed and steam/sauna shower. We did not use the kitchen on the third floor so can't rate either way.


Love the Ruby Room

4.4 on August 12, 2016

We love the Ruby Room in Wicker Park. One must realize it is not a 5 star hotel but a very comfortable hotel with no tv. It is the perfect get away in a neighborhood filled with great bars and restaurants. The bakery across the street is fabulous with chai tea lattes that exceed Starbucks! The blue line is just 2 blocks away. Great free parking nearby. We drove from Milwauker and used the train. The beds and shower are fabulous! We have booked another 2 nights already. There is no on site dining but lots of options within one block!


Austinites in Wicker Park

We had such a lovely stay in the Garden Suite. It was HUGE. I cannot recommend Ruby Room enough! We had a few cocktails on the patio area and really enjoyed the space. Our only issue was with the shower-it was difficult to use and an instruction sheet might have been useful :)


Love the Ruby Room!

4.4 on August 05, 2016

Although there is no dining on site, there are many eateries within walking distance. We love the 4th floor, but there is no elevator. One must be prepared to climb stairs. No tv - a totally relaxing place. The beds are super comfortable and the showers are fabulous. The courtyard is the perfect place for taking delicious bakery from across the street. Staying there twice in August, 2016.


2 night stay in May 2016

4.0 on June 13, 2016

We needed a place to stay for 2 nights in Wicker Park, close to my daughter's home. The Ruby Room was a fun alternative to a hotel and we didn't even miss having a TV in the room. The room was clean, bed very comfortable, bathroom was great and had spa level products for use. Super location, conveniently located near the EL as well as many dining and shopping options. My only complaint was that the towels in the bathroom were paper thin and in need of an upgrade. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay. Please note that I had to include a dining score on this review, but the property did not have dining options. As there are many nice choices within walking distance, I selected Exceeded my expectations.


Great stay!

We stayed in 4D - it was very nice room that met all of our needs. It also had an awesome balcony with a view of the city skyline. We would definitely stay here again!

We had a lovely time staying at the Ruby Room! The room was charming and comfortable and the service we received was excellent. It fit exactly what we needed for a weekend getaway, and the location made it easy to travel all over the city. The bakery across the street was also fantastic. Highly recommend all around!


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.

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).
