Went to the renaissance due to the fact that the courtyard was filled. Hotel was higher end . Check in was great. This hotel is a bit out of the way if your visiting JWU. It is convenient to a large mall and numerous restaurants. We had a room with a view of the capital building which was awesome. Unfortunately... More

My wife and I stayed at the Renaissance Providence for two nights on our wedding weekend. We highly recommend this hotel. Our experience was excellent. The accommodations and staff are top-notch! I booked a standard room two weeks before our stay. When we arrived to check-in, the valet and greeting staff were very welcoming and eager to assist. At the... More

The hotel is well located in Providence, within walking distance to restaurants, RISD, Brown and the mall. The staff is very attentive, especially Marisol in the lounge. She greets every guest with a warm, welcoming smile and make sure our needs are met.

I checked in, very late and was greeted by Marquis who was extremely nice and efficient. He had me checked in and up to my room In about two minutes, but made sure I had everything I needed (water/wake up call/any other amenities) before sending me on my way. My room was beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. 5 stars for... More

I should have written this review a long time ago. My husband and I stayed here on a business trip and had a serious problem with the valet parking when we went to check out. We had intended to drive to Maine for two nights and then return for a night before returning home. Although the problem was extremely inconvenient... More

The staff really was as amazing as the other reviews have raved about. Everyone - Front Desk, Housekeeping, Valet, Doormen, Room Service - unbelievably friendly and helpful. Gorgeous hotel, impeccable room. Beautiful, new, and clean. Public, the restaurant from which your room service food arrives, has really great food, by regular restaurant standards, not just by room service standards. Aveda... More

Very good hotel. Fitness center is latest equipment. Marisol club lounge host is very kind. She always welcomes all the guests and she remembers the name of all guests. She is always ready to help. Club lounge has lots of variety for breakfast as well as evening tapas.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a wedding party. They had gotten a block of rooms for wedding guests, so we got a discounted rate, which was nice. B/c parking was an additional $28 a day. There was a self-serve parking option but it only saved you $3. No free wifi either. This irked me more than... More
