We took the train from Boston. It was very pleasant. The station is currently going through some renovations. It was still quite clean and had a coffee shop and a gift shop. We would take the train again.

There is a cafe, souvenirs shop, restrooms, places to sit. It is situated almost in the centre of the city, you can easily find it. The bus stops at kennedy Plaza are quite near too.

Station is small but it works great .Limited food and beverage ,so just be aware of that. Very organized and train service has always been good. Easy to navigate and the providence place mall is right there.

I've arrived here, departed from here and shipped packages from here. It's not especially huge, but it's a nice little place with very friendly and helpful staff. It serves both the MBTA--local trains to Boston--and the Amtrak station with nationwide destinations and shipping.

Not really much to say about this one. It is a simple train station. Small quick serve restaurant, track board, ticket counter, restrooms and limited seating on main level. They offered a luggage storage room, but we didn't use it. No seating on boarding level or general train info. No reason to head down until they tell you train is... More

After arriving from Boston via a commuter train I found myself at the station. There is not obvious assistance for newly arrived visitors. Fortunately, the local police were hugely helpful and kind.

It is in a great location. Even though it is small, it was easy to get in and out of. Good security. Amtrak is a great way to get to Providence!

I've been in many train stations, large and small as well as unmanned. For the Providence city size, walking into this station on a Saturday afternoon at 4:45pm and finding the one eatery closed and nothing but vending machines available for refreshment is ridiculous. The Women's washroom was in need of serious attention, which I reported to Amtrak staff as... More
