I have always stayed at a nearby hotel. Bigger and fancier, attached to the Providence Place mall. But this time, I wanted to try something different. I found this boutique hotel and all the reviews about it was positive so I booked for the week-end. The location is just as nice, if not nicer. It was walking distance to quite... More

Fantastic location right in the middle of downtown with yummy restaurant (Aspire) right off the lobby. Maybe not fully "boutique" but far better than the anonymous chain hotels for a competitive price. I'll be back.

The first thing that happened was that our reservation was not in the system. We did get an apology and an updated room since we had to wait for a bit while this was figured out. Upon our arrival it was raining. The Valet got an umbrella and then stood there under it while my husband unloaded all of the... More

Firstly, this is considered a boutique hotel but there are actually 2 hotels in one. There is a newer part which is much lighter and has higher ceilings in the main part of the hotel you enter. There is then a second part of the hotel, which is much older and, at least on the side we stayed, much darker,... More

We have spent three weekends at Hotel Providence. When we hear a forecast for snow we call and book a room (and we always get an upgrade - usually a Junior Suite -as everybody is pulling in when they predict bad weather and we just don't enjoy being housebound/parking bans/ and nothing open). We have watched John the valet through... More
