We spent 5 nights here recently with our family, incl 2 teens and 1 ten yr old. The location of this hotel is ideal for the train station,( we took a wonderful day trip to Boston on Amtrak), and is right across from Providence Place Mall ( we had some serious retail therapy!), and great restaurants, The Cheesecake Factory being...

Could not have found a better spot. The staff was extremely helpful . Right across from Risd, and Brown. Everything was in walking distance. We had a beautiful view, pool and fitness room were great. Will use it again when I go back there , and already have recommended it to people I know

Staff was fantastic at this hotel. Had a problem with TV remote, and it took maybe two minutes for someone to be at our door. Great check in and check out. Nice location, particularly with respect to Providence Place and some dining options. A little tough to immediately get on 95 South if you want to head to the Zoo,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a descriptive review! Starting in December, our rooms are being renovated and will all have refrigerators. The even numbered rooms are away from the highway on our "quiet side". I do appreciate your time and feedback. I hope the next time you are in Providence you stay with us again. Thank... More

We had a great time. The location was excellent and the staff was wonderful. We could see the Fire Water display out our window. We were within walking distance a large mall with many restaurants. The pool area was a bit small but to be expected in a city. There was a bistro that served Starbucks. It was pretty good.... More

The hotel is standard within its category. So, expect a large, clean, and well equipped room. We had a huge room with a very nice view of the city. Sun rising on the State House was really nice and so was the night view of the area. Brakfast was not included but we got a voucher for it. Quality and... More

Normally I find myself writing 5s for Marriott properties, or sometimes 4s. This is a 3, which for me is harsh criticism since I am a Marriott loyalist.

Marriott Courtyards seem to deliver a very reliable experience, and this was no exception. The lobby is bright and spacious, plenty of room to spread out and relax or work. Room was nothing special, but it was clean and comfortable. Did not eat here, but the coffee service in the morning was quick. Staff was friendly and helpful with recommendations... More

I stayed in the Courtyard Providence Downtown while visiting RISD with my daughter. The hotel was neat and clean, staff was friendly and food service at the Bistro was excellent. We had a room at the end of the hall with an excellent view. I will definitely be staying there again

The Courtyard is a good answer to a challenge that you may have. Last week I had meetings in New York and Boston. The Boston hotel room rates were far too aggressive - over $400 a night or more. So I took the Amtrak to Providence, laid over at the Courtyard (for about $170) and then caught the Amtrak into... More
