Location is great! Love the funky jazz theme! The loung downstairs has amazing cocktails! The parking lot is gated and locked at night. We each got breakfast coupons for this amazing restaurant next door, who in return offered me a free coffee coupon for a cool, fair trade coffee shop down the block. Supportive, funky downtown feel! Mall is in walking distance, too.

Liked downtown location and available restaurants. Ruby was pretty good. Liked artwork. Easy access to shopping and park.

Room was very clean The bed was comfortable and was quiet. Will stay again.

Nice hotel. It’s in walking distance of many restaurants, events and points of interests. It was clean and had very friendly staff. I would stay there again.

Very cute with updated furnishings and very clean. The bar closing at 2am meant some noisy people but it's a downtown hotel next to several venues so I was expecting that and slept with earplugs. Definitely plan on returning!

Got a parking spot! Room was clean, decent tv channel selection.

Great downtown location. Euro-style rooms - small but efficient and clean with hip decor. Great bar and restaurant on premises with good coffee shop and restaurants within short walking distance in what appears to be a renovating downtown.

We were on a cross-country road trip and Spokane was our first stop. We booked this hotel specifically because it had a lounge. After a VERY long day of traveling, we just wanted to relax in the lounge with a cocktail and plan out our next day. We did NOT want to have to leave our hotel. We were very disappointed as we were checking in to learn the lounge closed early that day! During the booking process and confirmation there was no indication whatsoever it was going to be closing early that evening due to Fourth of July. It wasn’t even 7:30 PM when we checked in and the reason they gave was a close early because of the holiday. Fireworks weren’t even being sent off for three more hours! If I had known the lounge was closed we would’ve continued on another hour to go to another city. Very disappointed they didn’t offer any type of compensation (Discount, etc) for the huge inconvenience. Aside from all that, it was a very cool looking hotel. Very artsy. The room was awesome “looking” but still had a veerrrrry musty “old hotel” smell.

Great location and incredible art. Cool renovations. Continental breakfast could be better.

It was comfy, the staff was nice. The hotel was busy.

Downtown Spokane is sorely missing inexpensive hotels that are safe and clean. We often use the Ruby because it fills that void for a one night stay. We like the bar and convenience of the free breakfast. This last visit I saw some evidence that the original is showing some wear and tear that needs to be addressed. i will still stay at the Ruby but hopefully the ownership can take some time to look over this original property and fix the little things like torn carpet, bathroom fixtures, and retrain slow to respond morning staff.

Love the hotel but the toilet wasn't working properly.

Nicely renovated old style motel. Rooms are out side with gated entry access to parking and stairs

Came up for a concert that ended up getting cancelled due to bad weather. Ended up staying an extra night because we liked this hotel so much. The bar staff at the sapphire lounge were the highlight of our trip! Seriously, those guys derserve a raise! Very clean and comfortable rooms. Not a lot of parking, but they had over flow parking not too far away. Overall great time!
