I haven't stayed here in about 6 years and I was much more impressed years ago when I visited. I was assigned a room which was like walking into a FRIDGE. It's 15 degrees out and someone left the thermostat on ON and 55 degrees and COOL. It was freezing. I called down to the front desk and she said "The last people who stayed much have set it like that." I was shocked. Wouldn't housekeeping monitor that? The next room they moved me to smelled like a cigar bar. I was moved to one last room which smelled like horrible B.O. with a hint of urine. I didn't want to hassle the gal again so I sucked it up. I brewed coffee in every room (it was a suite) and that took the smell away. I found several giant female hairs in the bathroom. No huge deal but worth mentioning - attention to detail lacking a bit. For the price I paid I just didn't feel like it was up to snuff. Location was good as I had remembered. Just struck out three times with the rooms. I am just concerned that no one noticed the smells etc.

The Hotel Providence is in a wonderful location right in the heart of downtown Providence and within walking distance to many restaurants and bars. There are some parking areas within a short walk to the hotel or you can use the excellent valet service that they offer for $30 a day. The reception area was well appointed and efficient. We stayed in a standard king room (202) Which was a corner room with an o.k view of downtown. The room was near the elevator and stairwell (which seemed to always smell of weed:) so it was rather noisy at night and early in the morning. The walls are very thin so you hear more than you would want. The room was a good size with a comfy bed, mini fridge, room safe and several device charging ports. The bathroom was rather small and the bathroom floor was a little dirty. The shower is very small and a challenge to use. Overall a decent boutique style hotel in a great downtown location.

Our family of 4 had a great one night stay while we were in town to see Hamilton at PPAC. The hotel is a block from the theater and close to a few pubs and cafes for breakfast and dinner. We had a good dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, left our coats in the room and walked to the show. Couldn’t have been easier. Rooms are clean and updated. Beds are comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are not as spacious as the modern hotels, but have much more character. My kids made the most of the amenities fee - free WiFi, bottled water and pastries in the lobby. We will definitely stay here when we come back for another show.

The staff went above and beyond to accommodate my family needs. They are extremely covid compliant ( S.O is compromised). I couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant experience. Thomas specifically catered to our every need. I’ll be back again December !

I stayed at the Hotel Providence in December 2021 because I had the opportunity to have dinner there in 2019 and remember saying “if I come back to Paris I’d love to stay there”. And I was lucky enough to return this December. The hotel is truly the most charming place I’ve ever stayed at (and I have travelled a fair bit). The attention to detail in the furnishings (even the USB port is brass plated to say nothing of the impeccable mini-bar filled with ice). But it is the hospitality and the service which set the Hotel Providence apart. This is not a chain hotel - it is a personal enterprise run by an independent owner with a real heart and passion for creating the ideal stay. The 10th arr is also a great location with easy access to everything. Stay here if you can! Megan O’Toole
