Stray away from 'corporate' and 'standard' here. History, hospitality and pleasure await you at Madison's oldest operating hotel. The Hotel Ruby Marie, built in 1873 during the heyday of the booming railroad era, has served thousands of visitors to the Madison area for well over a century. They are locally-owned and operated. Each room features a unique combination of modern luxury and Victorian charm. Onsite dining and takeout is available (complete with outdoor seating and extra safety precautions), with late night food and drink options. Breakfast and happy hour are both included with your stay. They have live, local music right on our block every Monday-Saturday. They're across the street from Lake Monona and a scenic bike path, and just blocks from the Capital building and local attractions. Complimentary parking is included for all of their guests.
