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.

Hotel Providence could not have been better! It is a beautiful hotel and the rooms was gorgeous! Every single person at the hotel was wonderful.

My husband and I recently spent the weekend at Hotel Providence and found the experience to be quite delightful.

I spent the weekend of 8/1 to 8/3 in Providence, RI at the Hotel Providence and put at the top of my list.

Beautiful small hotel. We got the government rate of $130 making the stay a screaming bargain. Spoiler alert: They did not check our government ID! Our room had a beautiful view of Grace Church steeple. Ask for a room with "21" at the end for a corner view.

David B, General Manager at Hotel Providence, responded to this review

Thank you for submitting a Trip Advisor review. Grace Church is truly a magnifienct building, with an elegant steeple. The rooms with a "21" are very desirable and many guests ask for that room type, whenever they return to Providence. Please let your government colleagues know about us...we promise to give them a warm welcome! Looking forward to your return.... More

Beautiful historic hotel. The staff from housekeeping, to front desk to valet to bellhop were amazing and very responsive. One of the guests in a room close by was smoking and the front desk staff immediately addressed it with them as this is a non smoking facility. That was much appreciated!

As I am writing this, my family and I have been waiting almost 3 hours for them to find our car keys. The valet, which is a mandatory $28 service, cant find them and will have to send someone to make a new one.

I apologize for the mishap with the lost car keys and the ensuing inconvenience. My understanding is that the valet company replaced the car keys on Sunday after having a locksmith make new keys and offered to reimburse you for the other keys on the lost key ring. I also apologize for the noise and have asked our controller for... More
