Let's get the positives out of the way first. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The overall location on Federal Hill was fun; lots of restaurants, bars, etc. The room was clean. Beyond that this place was like a bad Eurovision dream. The outside is cute, very European. Once inside the decor was stark white and pastels.... More

My friend and I were out in Providence, and had a few drinks We did not want to take a chance driving home-40 minute drive. She has an app-"Hotel Tonight" or something like that. This hotel came up with a rate of $69.00. Came on, you can't beat that. We were out pretty late, so all the loud music was... More

Unless you are a really sound sleeper and/or a night owl, stay elsewhere when visiting Providence! This hotel has virtually no soundproofing and the band playing next door until 2 AM might as well be under your bed! And then when the band finally stops playing you hear people in the street calling to each other, horns blowing, etc. It... More

The slightly startling decor of the rooms (surgical white) give them a rather cold feel. On the whole good value ($100 for a large suite) but I'm not sure I'd return. Great service from Zac on the desk but his colleague's unhelpfulness at check in greatly prejudiced us against the hotel.

We stayed here this past weekend. The front desk worker was super nice. When we got to our room, we noticed that the air conditioner in the bedroom didn't work and, there were strange stains on the curtains. We could live with those things, but we couldn't live with the mouse we found. I was told that I would get... More

Worst hotel ever! 3 floor walk up. No parking. They have lots of rules you MUST accept - all for their benefit. We had to park 3 blocks away and drag our suitcase with us. Then they charged $20 for me to show them where the car was so they could send someone else to park it "later". Desk clerk... More

We needed one night's accommodation near Providence airport at the end of a road trip through New England. I called the hotel based on Trip Advisor and the hotel's website promising flexibility on rates. I reached Assistant Manager Wynter Spears who gave me a great deal. The hotel is smack in the middle of Little Italy on Federal Hill in... More

We stayed at the Dolce Villa the weekend of May 3, 2014. We spent our honeymoon on a tour of Italy and Croatia, and this hotel in Rhode Island felt like it had been picked up from one of those countries and dropped into New England. The decor and construction are very Southern European, with tile everywhere and a very... More

Reading previous reviews of this hotel almost kept me away - I am glad I gave it a try. For under $90, a very comfortable bed, a very clean two-room suite and a location close to my dinner appointment on Federal Hill were too much to pass up. Staff was very friendly and responsive, also appreciated. Clearly from the multiple... More
