I stayed at the Providence Biltmore in September 2014 for a business trip. I was trying to choose between this hotel and the Omni because both had good reviews. The Starbucks in the lobby ultimately won me over and after staying in the Omni for one night (the Providence Biltmore didn't have any rooms available for my return trip) I know that I made the right choice.
The valet staff at the Biltmore are exceptional and they are always well staffed so you never have to wait for service. Someone is there to assist you as soon as you pull up or exit the hotel, which makes for a seamless customer experience.
I also appreciated the convenience of the adjoining Starbucks for a quick morning coffee/breakfast or afternoon snack. There's also a Dunkin Donuts just around the corner.
The fitness center does the job and has a few good treadmills, ellipticals, and a weight machine.
The hotel is very old so rooms are a little small and bathrooms don't have a lot of space for toiletries, etc. I thought it added character to the property and didn't mind the smaller room since I was traveling alone for business.
Overall, the Providence Biltmore is a convenient, solid choice for business travel. After comparing it to one night's stay at the Omni hotel I appreciated my Biltmore experience even more.
