Nice boutique hotel. Big rooms. Comfy king bed. But when we went, this hotel was hosting a wedding reception. They do not have function room facilities for a wedding, so they had a heated tent attached to the building. The band was in the tent and the music was so loud, you could hear it down the street. Every hotel... More

Hopefully, you will come back and be able to enjoy the hotel to its fullest. Please contact me if you decide to return; I would like to personally handle your reservation. Again, my apologies. Yours sincerely,... More

Part of a bridge tournament Nov 26 - Dec 4. Have not had this level of service EVER! Obviously staff were part of a "We Care" program. Friendly, helpful, amazing food in Aspire Diningroom. Our friends visiting from neighbouring hotels were envious!

Was a visiting Brown University and found this gem of a hotel about half mile away. In a lovely downtown area with restaurants. Only stayed one night but wished I could stay longer.

Unloading/Loading is fraught because there are very few spaces outside the hotel which does not have its own parking and the valets want to whisk your car away before you are sorted. Brilliant receptionists, know the area, know their business. Probably because my wife was on a four day Tanglepatterns course (see tangleteacheruk@gmail.com) at the Hotel and we had booked... More

I spent a night here in this comfortable and welcoming hotel. The room was a decent size, very clean, and with a good en suite bathroom. Free wifi was a welcome addition. The room (with two queen doubles) was also very good value. On check-in (around 6pm) I enquired with the front desk about the parking arrangements. I'd parked outside... More

Thank you for writing a review on Trip Advisor. We are pleased you enjoyed the hotel, but concerned about your comments regarding overnight parking. I certainly do not want to be disrepectful regarding this issue, but I called the City of Providence to verify their overnight parking policy.

I really liked this hotel, it was close to the train station ( maybe a 10 minute walk) and close to a lot of the cute bookstores and cafes downtown. The hotel itself is really cute and boutique like, I was there for a work retreat and the staff was really friendly and accommodating. The rooms were on the small... More

Particularly impressed with service - prompt, professional and friendly - genuinely friendly! Re food, we are world travelers and the chef is excellent. Among the comforts of the room were the towels which were uncommonly soft. Congrats to management and staff on a property we would recommend.
