Hotel is located in the centre of Providence. The room we 've got was very good. Personnel was very friendly. If you are looking for a hotel in Providence I would certainly recommand this one. Valet parking was a little expensive.

This hotel was nice and well priced. I just couldn't find a reason to give it a 5/5. So a 4 will be my score. Although, if it matters.. I'd make it a 4.5 if I could. But Providence was a very charming city. I recommend walking around town. The hotel is conveniently located

Spent our anniversary visiting Providence and after looking at tripadvisor we booked at the Hotel Providence. As it was a quite weekend in town, our rate was less than $200 per night. When we arrived, they upgraded us to a suite - very nice. So, all I can talk about is the suite -room 401. It was huge and very... More

I had a very enjoyable stay at Hotel Providence, a lovely boutique hotel in downtown Providence. The hotel is conveniently located, close to some of Providence's best restaurants and the boutiques on Westminster Street. The staff was unfailingly helpful and welcoming. It is also close to the Trinity Repertory Theater.
