We arrived in the middle of a blizzard, and were given a warm welcome. Max, our host, supplied all of our needs, and his employees were always helpful and pleasant. The room, including the double bed, was very comfortable. We were in the Empire Room, on the ground floor, which is smaller and more simply furnished than some of the other rooms, but it included all we need for our one-week stay. The home-cooked breakfast was always delicious.
The B&B is located in a lovely historic neighborhood. It's walking distance to Brown University, the Rhode Island School of Design (with a good museum and fantastic museum shop), restaurants, and shops.
We were visiting my daughter who lives in Providence. My five-year-old granddaughter wrote her own review:
"Very comfortable ... nice wallpaper ... hard to open." (That was because my husband had turned the key the wrong way in the lock; it really wasn't hard to open at all.)
If my daughter stays in Providence, we will definitely return here when we visit her.
