We come to Providence once or twice a year for an overnight, and have decided the Renaissance is our favorite hotel for these trips. My preference is partly motivated by the fact that it's a Marriott property, but it's also incredibly conveniently located with nice, comfortable rooms and a swank hotel bar. The Renaissance is just a block or so... More

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The sound on my tv didn't work and Tyrone, the engineer, got me upgraded to a junior suite. Above and beyond. The bed was comfortable and the amenities were great. Plus, it was easily accessible from the highway. I highly recommend it.

The Renaissance turned into the hotel that my family stayed at every time we went to Providence. The last time we went for my youngest sister's graduation was truly the best. I was 4 months pregnant and not feeling at my best. The beds are perfection and the front desk staff was not shy about accommodating my constant request for... More

Okay this was a business trip, but it would have been a nice weekend getaway. The location is outstanding--within walking distance of the train station. My tiny room had a view of the capitol building which was quite beautiful. There are food options onsite, but there is also a shopping mall right down the hill with a decent food court... More

The Renaissance in Providence is an excellent hotel. We have stayed here two New Year's Eve in a row, and we'll be certainly back again next year. They just updated the lobby, and it looks so much better and brighter. The customer service/ valet service is top notch. My wife actually booked three rooms for us and friends, and they... More

The hotel is conveniently located near everything in Providence - the Mall, Federal Hill, the Civic Center, the Convention Center, Downtown. The rooms are spacious and clean. Great bar/restaurant in the basement level. I have one criticism from my recent visit though. After a late night out my wife and I were sleeping in. We had the day off after... More

We stayed here for one night earlier this month and it's the first time reviews at Trip Advisor have let us down. At $209 before tax a night for a regular two bed room, well...we're staying at Sofitel in NYC this coming week for $239 a night. It's no Sofitel. I love Providence, so that's not the issue.

I have nothing but good things to say about the Providence Renaissance. I love both the morning and evening staff that service the member lounge, where they are always so helpful, nice, and the food is almost always good (vegetarian Tuesdays are the best & most creative). My favorite is Marquis, who checks me in on the late shift every... More

Was here with the wife for a wedding. Lovely hotel; in the middle of downtown and close to all the major attractions. Great service. Have to check out the mason lodge (just to be nosy). will definitely visit this hotel again.
