I had to stay in Providence for a Sunday evening and was unfamiliar with the city in general, it was my first time there. First great point is that its right off the highway, super easy to find with a big marquis light 'HOTEL' sign and a parking garage immediately to the right (however they do have valet if you'd...

Our room was right next to the elevator so it was a constant disruption of dinging bells until about 1-2 a.m. when the noise from the adjacent rooms pierced the hallway with high-pitched sounds from the fairer gender, all dressed up with their clacker heels and their drunken beckoning for one another. There was even evidence if someone not able... More

We were in Providence for just one night for a concert at Lupo's (St. Vincent) and chose The Dean for the convent location. We were pleasantly surprised to find such a cozy and tastefully decorated room when we got there! The staff was very friendly and helpful, although the tiny elevator gave me the willies. And it was so quiet... More

I stayed at The Dean for a conference at the Rhode Island Convention Center. I booked because of the location (right across the street) and price (it was $50-$75 less than the name-brand hotels nearby). I wasn't disappointed in either. I'd stay again under the same circumstances. The good: The staff was fantastic. Super friendly, gladly held on to my... More

I stumbled across The Dean Hotel while I had been looking for a convenient weekend getaway not too far from home (NYC). I fell in love with the boutiquey feel of the hotel, plus thought it was fabulous that they had a restaurant, bar, coffee shop, and karaoke lounge all within the hotel. By and large, the reviews for the... More

I was in RI for two days and stayed at the Dean. The first thing that caught my eye was the beautiful decor. Each room is decorated uniquely and with such care. I stayed in the Queen room and the bed was so comfortable. The room was spotless and the shower was gorgeous with one of those rain showers that... More

We stayed at the Dean Hotel to visit RISD. It was quite easy to get to the campus from the hotel. Just a quick jaunt up the hill. It was also located in the center of downtown with access to many restaurants etc.

I LOVED staying at the Dean Hotel. The creators have done a great job bringing what was once a flop house into the 21st century while maintaining it's history and introducing a feeling of futuristic nostalgia. If you are looking for luxury and amenities, this might not be the place for you, although the bed is by far the most... More

It's interesting to read the reviews that are less than complimentary. Most highlight things that weren't exactly secrets. if you plan to visit, check out the website. The good: Unique, non chain, custom furniture, unique design, great downtown location, below average prices, friendly staff. The not so good: rooms lack square footage. Enough, but not a lot of extra. Desk... More

Lateapex, You've hit the nail on the head! Far be it for me to state the obvious, but I'm very glad you took a moment to make that point. We don't try to get anything over on the masses (that would be a bad plan.) We look forward to seeing you again on your next stay. Feel free to mention... More

Have made the trip to Providence a few times now to stay at the Dean and get around the town. The hotel staff is fantastic, as our the rooms. Each of the hotel restaurant (Faust), the cocktail bar (Magdalenae Room), coffee bar (Bolt) are similarly excellent. If you're feeling a bit wild, head to the back where the Boombox is... More
