Try airbnb.com

Hotel rooms in Providence are expensive. If airbnb doesn't work out, try looking for hotel rooms in Warwick close to the airport. These are usually on the bus line to downtown Providence.

The public transportation system is ripta.com. I didn't see any buses to the airport area leaving that late. Bear in mind to take a bus you would have to walk a few blocks from the Convention Center to Kennedy Plaza to catch it. If you are a female and would be alone I would not recommend that at night.

You could take a cab. I think it's pretty expensive, though.

RI does not have any subways. We have a tiny bit of a commuter rail that runs from the airport in Warwick to Providence, but there are only a few trains each day. See the schedule at mbta.com to see if this might work for you. The train station in Providence is just one block from the Convention Center.

Let me see if I can help.

The train leaves the airport weekday mornings at 5:05, 6:13, 7:52, 7:59 and 9:26. It takes about 15 minutes to get to Providence. The advantage here is that the rail station is across the street from the Convention Center and you don't have to worry about traffic slowing you down. The return trains are 6:10, 6:46 and 9:23 pm is the last train that goes to the airport. Seen mbta.com for more information.

Weekends starting July 1 there are no trains at all.

All buses drop you off at Kennedy Plaza, which is between Washington St and Fulton St in Providence. You have to walk about 3 blocks on Dorrance St to reach the Convention Center. Then on your return trip you have to walk back to Kennedy Plaza.

The #14 bus, West Bay, is the one that will take you back to the airport. The bus leaves the airport at 6:40, 8:03, 8:49 and 10:16. Coming back it leaves Kennedy Plaza at 5:16. 6:25 and 7:15 pm. On weekends the last bus back to the airport leaves at 6:27pm. See ripta.com for more information.

Hope this helps.
