ground transportation from PVD to Omni Providence Hotel

Hi,

I'm coming to Providence, next month, for a business conference. What is the best way to get from PVD to the Omni? Don't want to deal with renting a car, sounds as though there are many interesting sights within walking distance of the hotel. Any recommendations? Won't have a lot of leisure time, but will have at least one evening.

Take a cab or a RIPTA bus. They leave regularly right at the front doors of the airport, there are several which go right downtown to Kennedy Plaza, about 20 min. No need for a car in the city, the nice areas are all very closeby, and a 5 min cab ride can get you to Federal Hill if you don't feel like walking.
