Although my reservation was originally made with Johnson and Wales upon my arrival I discovered it is now Hilltop Hotel and Conference Center! I had no forewarning and was surprised when I called from the airport to contact the hotelo shuttle to learn that the hotel had been sold and no longer had an airport shuttle. Rather than tipping a... More

The manager knows I am writing this review because we were up-front and talked with him. Even Expedia thought we were reserving at Johnson and Wales and never mentioned the change. We came for the whole J and W experience: gourmet dining, staffed by students, etc. Beware: the place has fallen into disrepair and has been bought out. The minute... More

We had a very pleasant stay, clean, quiet room and helpful staff. It was also a nice surprise to get the complimentary breakfast too. Great value with good restaurants near by, no pool but nice exercise room.

We checked into J&W (the name has recently been changed to Hilltop Hotel) together with a wedding party which occupied approximately 20 rooms. We arrived on a Friday night around 10 pm. The woman at the front desk explained that we were in room 303 but that the elevator only went up to the 2nd floor and we would have... More

Nobody told us the the hotel had changed it's name to The Hilltop Hotel--so having driven round and round for about an hour we decided to ask in the Hilltop only to find out that it used to be Johnson and Wales (you'd think they might tell someone staying there!) As they had recently been taken over there were lots... More

We had one night here and it was very good. We had a large room which was quiet, comfortable and clean. The staff were professional and friendly and the hotel seemed to be good value for what was offered. We took breakfast in Audrey's which was a good selection and nice and fresh, the breakfast staff were very courteous. We... More

After reading some mediocre reviews I did not know what to expect. But I was quite surprised at this venue. Was with a large tour group and they were ready and waiting for us. Complete with luggage service and a cookie and lemonade reception. The room was comfortable, and inviting with ample space. The bathroom was huge and spotless. The... More

Clean, basic lodging convenient to Providence, Boston, and Newport areas. Staff are trainees but generally enthusiastic. Rooms are basic but clean and serviceable. Beds need replacing as they are not very firm. Audrey's has passable breakfast - croissants are the best of the lot as they appear to be made fresh each morning. Decent value for money right outside the... More

The value and the service is above board. The rooms are spacious and clean. The sitting area makes me not want to go back home. The interaction with the staff was wonderful. For a few dollars more it is well worth the upgrade to the suite.
