We arrived at this property around 6:00 after a 5 hour drive and we were told our room wasn't ready so we went for a walk. When we returned we discovered the room we had reserved had a maintenance issue and there were no comparable rooms available. The woman at the desk couldn't have handled it better. She was extremely... More

Our daughter was having a milestone birthday in Providence, but since the party would go on all night, my husband and I booked a room at Hotel Providence for a quiet night's sleep. When we checked in, before the party, we found a very loud wedding party on the patio. Rap and hip hop. Down the street was a large... More

The Hotel Providence is a nice hotel that's centrally located in downcity. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The rooms are nicely decorated and equipped with Keurig coffee machines. There is hot tea in the morning and fresh baked chocolate chunk cookies in the hotel lobby in the afternoon. There is a $28/day valet parking fee. I suggest doing... More

A lovely old mid-size hotel. Room was large and pleasant and reasonably quiet, bed was clean and comfortable, staff were enthusiastic and helpful. Lots of good informal food and beer choices nearby in a walkable neighborhood. Even a good bagel place for breakfast. Parking is valet and needlessly expensive, but the service was good. Lobby had good takeaway coffee and... More

Stayed for 3 nights during the weekend in this hotel. They put us in the West wing, which is above the terrace of the restaurant. Room was spacious, had a very good bed and bathroom was clean, excellent shower and more than enough towels.

We stayed one night in town for a 5K road race. This hotel is in the perfect location for exploring the city on foot.

I stayed at the hotel from June 21-25. Everyone working at the hotel was so helpful, friendly, and accommodating. David Benton, the General Manager; Matt Chauvin, the Front Desk Manager; and Roy Moore, at the Front Desk were amazing in taking care of our every need! The Aspire Restaurant served not only delicious food, but healthy ones, too. Their staff... More

Clean, comfy rooms. Love the old-fashioned tile and decor. Interesting and beautiful artwork/furnishings throughout the hotel. Fine restaurant and lovely courtyard. Came here for a seminar; the food they served our group was outstanding, in some cases better than what I got in the restaurant. Most of the staff were excellent. Within walking distance of many sights. Would love to... More
