I stayed here while attending a conference. Elegant surroundings, very comfortable, very accommodating. I was able to check in early without issues. Keurig coffee and tea in the room which was a welcome sight after a long travel day. Location is great! This hotel is located a short walk (15min) from RISD and Brown University, and in the other direction... More

We can't really say enough good about this hotel. If you have never been to Providence and want a hotel that is centrally located, very clean, helpful staff, classy and over all exceptional, this is your place. It is a few short blocks from pretty much every where. We rented a car and never got it out of the valet... More

No doubt not the hotel for everyone, but certainly everything we ever wanted. I say that because the Hotel Providence is the epitome of the boutique hotel and more. Small, intimate and reminiscent of the mid-nineteenth century Providence of years gone by. Our room was quiet and comfortable even though it did not afford much of a view. Aspire dining... More

Hotel Providence occupies an updated historical property in the midst of downtown Providence. Within easy walking distance of many of the city's arts venues, shopping spots, restaurants and universities, the location makes Hotel Providence an ideal place for a short stay. You can find many small shops and a range of food and music offerings very close by. The hotel... More

Best ever hotel experience. Clean room and public areas, very comfortable beds, staff helpful and pleasant (yes, even smiling). The restaurant, inside and outside seating, pleasing and comfortable. Our food was delicious and reasonably priced. All in all, an unbeatable experience.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Providence this past weekend, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. This boutique hotel is just lovely - from the gracious staff to the well-appointed details in the lobby and in the rooms. It has both a classic and trendy feel, and the bed was one of the most comfortable that... More

This hotel is updated but with boutique charms. We were in town for a wedding, so I can't speak to the location-- didn't have much time to explore--but the rooms were nice, the beds were comfortable and the staff was delightful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Walking distance to Brown University, great location for other sites. I did have a slight water leakage to my room but it was taken care of immediately. The restaurant was good but not exceptional but there are very good restaurants in walking distance.

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.
