Stayed for two nights. Convenient location and nice staff. Not a large hotel, which we liked. Can walk to restaurants, cafes and other sites. Parking was easy with valet or metered parking on the street. Only downside is the room (207) we had was small with window that faced a wall. For the most part the room was very clean except the bathroom floor could have been swept more. Would stay here again, but would request a room with a real window that doesn’t face a wall.

I picked this hotel because of all the reviews mentioning charm and location. Not particularly stylish or charming. Good location. And our windows in our room faced a brick wall about 2-3 feet away. No light. Could not see the sky. This room was not discounted. No one informed me of this when I made the reservation. Honestly, I could have stayed at the Holiday Inn and had a good location and a window with some light.

Hello, We are sorry to hear your stay did not meet your expectations. The hotel is usually described as charming for our antique décor and custom paintings in the room as well as in our public spaces. As you noted our location is great being right in the downtown area of Providence, which puts us in walking distance to Providence Performing Art Center, Dunkin Donut Center and more! The downside to being right in downtown is it puts us in close proximity to other building . We apologize the view affected your stay so much We hope next time your travels bring you to Providence you consider giving Hotel Providence another try ! Sincerely, Thomas Anderson General Manager

Was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It's done very well. Everything is clean, seems very new, and well done. Rooms were very spacious and comfortable, and everyone there was great. Location is really good too - very walkable to restaurants, bars, shopping, theatre, etc. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed 3 nights in the hotel. The location is nice, downtown, restaurants nearby, and easy access to major roads. However, the hotel has no services available. No bar, no restaurant, not even bottled water. Breakfast only on the weekend. We parked our car via valet service (!st night), and when we returned to the hotel by 9pm we found out that this service is available only till 8pm during the week. Luckily there were other options. The reception desk was often abandoned so you had to wait for someone to show up. To get to our room we had to meander through back corridors, get to the elevator, and follow a darkish corridor to walk up seven steps. The room (and bathroom) was very clean and overall well appointed (except for the lack of storage for your clothes which had to stay in our suitcases). The window offered a view on a dark wall about ten feet away, so dark room all day.

We are disappointed to hear we missed the mark during your stay. We look forward to when we can fully restore services in food and beverage which as of now is slated for September 1st. We are also happy to announce full-time Valet starts August 1st. Our employees have been working so hard covering one or two other jobs than their own which unfortunately sometimes leaves the desk unattended for a short period of time which we are sorry happened during your stay. We are happy to hear your room was well appointed and clean. We have taken your comments into consideration as we vamp up our staffing levels and return services We invite you to join us again to show you the real Hotel Providence, A true four-diamond experience Sincerely, Thomas Anderson

Ben at the front desk helped us figure out our train up to Boston. We weren't sure if we should take Amtrak or the local train, which station was closest to our next hotel, etc and Ben went out of his way to help us figure out the logistics. The hotel is clean and nice and in a convenient location for this amazing city. Highly recommend visiting the Plant Stand on the water for a delicious vegan meal, too! Easily walking distance from the hotel.

Ben has been a superstar since day one and we are happy to hear you were able to experience his hospitality! We are happy to announce he was just promoted to front desk supervisor for reasons you listed above. As you mentioned our hotel is clean and in a great location but it's the employees who truly make it spectacular. Employees like Ben going out of their way to make sure our guests are well informed about the area makes the hotel so special. We also love plant city! It is so easy to walk to from the hotel with such a wide variety! We look forward to seeing you during your next visit to Providence! Sincerely, Thomas Anderson
