We found this Hampton Inn by accidentally driving into the parking lot behind it, on the canal side of the building. Happy mistake! The fee for 24 hours of parking in this private lot is $15 instead of the $25 the hotel charges, and it's not valet. We were able to access our car easily for the things we needed for our business meetings.
This hotel is vertical, instead of horizontal like the suburban Hampton Inns, and has a beautiful old stone and brick facade. The public areas also have some remnants of the old building that this hotel is in, and it's very charming. The breakfast area is in the main large space on the first floor, as well as a small comfortable sitting area.
We had a neat small room on a high floor, facing the water, with a king-size bed. Very comfy, too, with smooth clean white sheets and duvet cover. I didn't like the overly stuffed pillows, though, because I can't sleep with my neck so vertical. The rug was clean, there was a desk with chair (unfortunately the height adjustment was stuck in the lowest position), and another armchair in the corner. The heat worked well, and the thermostat was easy to control but the system was very loud at times. Other than that, the room was very quiet.
The bathroom is nicely tiled, with plenty of towels and toiletries. There was a walk-in shower with sliding doors. No complaints here.
There was good and free wifi, a full breakfast with lots of choices was included, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Next time we're in Providence we'll gladly stay here.
