We stay at the Ruby 2 every chance we get. The rooms are clean comfortable and the staff is great. This is the third year we have stayed with them for the St.Patties parade weekend and the Irish Drinking Team Pub crawl. Location is great. Easy to walk to local restraunts and night life. I recommend this hotel to anyone...

We had a nice stay here. It's centrally located and appears to have been recently updated. Everything was nice. It's a little close to the train tracks but it wasn't terrible. The trains at least slow down as they proceed through downtown Spokane.

Great location in downtown Spokane! It seems that all the rooms have been recently refurbished and are adorned with unique artwork. Overall, very happy with the quality of the property, my room, and service. While this didn't bother me, a note for light sleepers is that the hotel is right next to train tracks, which was very noisy overnight.

This was a nice hotel for what we needed. The train runs right next to the hotel and is a very loud rumble but fortunately no horns. The rooms are old and seems little insulation as the party goers were very loud when they returned from the concert down the block in the wee hours of the night. Although this...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The check-in office aroma was pleasant, the clerks were friendly and helpful, and our room was super clean. The free breakfast provided enough options to satisfy all four of us. We loved the murals, and watching the trains (but not being bothered by overly loud noises). We felt secure having the option of covered parking...

The Ruby 2 and I were just not a good match. I booked it on Priceline, which said the room was 651 square feet in size and had a coffeemaker. It was less than half the listed size, and no coffeemaker. Upon check-in, I was first advised parking would be an additional $5.00/night. Getting to my room, I found a...

Loved the front desk clerk who was so helpful and handsome too:) Parking was easy, rooms were comfy,loved the art on the walls and the Sapphire Bar was fun as well . They also...
