I love the place. The staff is fabulous. The only problem was that my room was next to the stairs. I heard everytime people walking up the stairs and openning the door. It woke me up a couple of time. I would go bavk anytime

Providence really needed a hotel like The Dean. Most of the other hotels available in Providence are chains or just plain wierd(Biltmore). The Dean has a very cool vibe. Beautifully restored old building. As an architecture/design person, I was very happy with the visuals. Asdide from the lift being broken while I was there, everything else was pretty great. The...

We loved The Dean! We loved every staff person we came in contact with at the coffee bar, restaurant, check in, door…. It was extremely comfortable, low on the storage side for any belongings in the but we were only there for one day so it mattered none at all ~ knowing this I'd pack differently in the future (should...

I really enjoyed my one night stay at this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was a great atmosphere at the hotel. The room was a small studio style corner room but was designed to make use of the minimal space. It felt a bit like being at home in a small apartment than a hotel room... More

After reading many reviews, good and bad, I still decided to try this place. While I'm not disappointed, I do hope they make small changes that can make a stay more enjoyable. The good....Friendly staff. Nicely appointed room ( small but what do you expect at a boutique hotel). My room on the fifth floor was quiet. The bad...elevator did... More

A cute and comfortable hotel that was exactly what I expected and how it presented itself on it's website etc. I like something a bit different to chain hotels when I travel. Room and bathroom clean and comfortable and the staff were super!

We booked a summer weekend here after seeing a review in the NYT travel section. We did hear in advance about the non-functioning "lift" - or elevator everywhere else in the USA, even converted/unconverted brothels - and this was a nice touch. Even though we were on the 4th floor, we had no issue with the stair climb. The room... More

This hotel looks great. If you're there to get a slick Instagram, you've come to the right place. The rooms are pretty and the staff is really friendly. The beds are comfy and the provided toiletries are a nice addition. In the mornings, the coffee shop in the lobby is a cool way to start the day. With that said,... More

I spent a day in providence after a 35 year hiatus and The Dean was a very nice, convenient and easy place to stay. The staff was very helpful and informative. Thanks to Maria at the front desk, Steve out front and the Barrister who was great. The room was of good size, well outfitted and comfortable - and the... More
