The Providence Train Station is home to some amazingly beautiful interior architecture...and that's a good thing since if your going to catch a train the chances are pretty good that it'll be running late. This may seem annoying but at least now you can enjoy the beauty of the building!

This is a small station that is easy to get in and out of. There is a great little souvenir stand/snack shop in the building,

The station sits at the foot of the State House hill. It is small and simple; you will not get lost in this station. It is not opulent but is clean enough. Although we did not eat in the café (LaFrance), one of the local hotel staff told us she makes a point of eating there whenever she has the... More

Traveling by train to Boston or New York, I've gone via the Providence Train station. It's clean and the staff are friendly and very helpful. *Walking distance to downtown Providence, which includies: hotels, Johnson and Wales University, Dunkin' Donuts Center and Providence Place Mall.

This renovated train station still has an old-fashioned flair, with its long wood benches. You can get something to eat there, but it's not the biggest selection (though you're also on the edge of downtown, with gobs of eateries). A simple and pleasant place to wait for a train.

A very small train station servicing Providence and nearby towns. Very convenient steps to station platforms. Quick and easy cab rides awaiting outside ready to go anywhere.

The Providence Train Station is a simple train station to navigate. For the small space, there are plenty of vendors for food and drink. The Amtrak ticket counter was empty when I visited and I walked right up with no waiting to get my tickets. The South side of the train station is under construction which made my walk from... More

Easy train station to navigate. Parking garage close by. Delays can be expected in the winter months when we get a lot of freezing snow. That's New England ! Nothing can control that. A nice feel save train station ~

Very easy to navigate and find out which track your train will be arriving or departing from. Smaller than expected but they make adequate use of space.
