The hotel is right downtown and an easy walk to everywhere downtown. The room we got was big, a suite and very comfortable. But the first thing we noticed was the hallways and room were quite cold. We did adjust our room, which helped. The bar service was stand offish and the waitress seemed not overly interested. Same with breakfast... More

We stayed here while attending a wedding. The first thing we noticed was that every member of the staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The common areas are lovely, and our room was comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated. A couple of problems: our room directly faced a church with a bell tower. Those bells go off from 8am until 8pm... More

The check in was a pleasure with Rosella, she was polite, courteous and very efficient. We were offered fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and iced tea during the checking process which was nice after a three hour drive. Valet parking was fast and easy right in front of the lobby. Our suite was large and spacious, bedding was crisp and... More

I booked a room for a conference. The hotel is a classic. Solid, perfect condition. My room stunned me. It was large, very well set up, clean, comfortable, quiet. The lobby was very welcoming. The staff at the ready. You walk out into the Arts District, really feeling part of the City. The rate was comparable to other options. I... More

I stayed here while attending a conference. Elegant surroundings, very comfortable, very accommodating. I was able to check in early without issues. Keurig coffee and tea in the room which was a welcome sight after a long travel day. Location is great!

No doubt not the hotel for everyone, but certainly everything we ever wanted. I say that because the Hotel Providence is the epitome of the boutique hotel and more. Small, intimate and reminiscent of the mid-nineteenth century Providence of years gone by. Our room was quiet and comfortable even though it did not afford much of a view. Aspire dining... More

Hotel Providence occupies an updated historical property in the midst of downtown Providence. Within easy walking distance of many of the city's arts venues, shopping spots, restaurants and universities, the location makes Hotel Providence an ideal place for a short stay.

Best ever hotel experience. Clean room and public areas, very comfortable beds, staff helpful and pleasant (yes, even smiling). The restaurant, inside and outside seating, pleasing and comfortable. Our food was delicious and reasonably priced. All in all, an unbeatable experience.
