I had a gift in my room when I arrived, a disgusting and large hairball in the shower. The A/C was on in the winter with the thermostat set at 54 degrees. Coffee maker, but no coffee cups. Parking the car and filling out the online form/payment is a process, as is the “COVID” form upon check in (ironic since Rhode Island has had the highest per capita COViD cases this winter...who are they kidding?). With all the COVID hysteria and social justice over-reaction Providence is an empty and depressing city, unfortunately Hotel Providence isn’t making the experience any better. If this is the best hotel Providence has to offer, I’d hate to think what the other hotels are like.

We are glad to hear we were able to "crush" your daughters recent wedding! Kate and her team do an excellent job always going above and beyond for our guests. The whole Hotel Providence team thanks you for holding the wedding here and trusting us with such an important day. Working with the bride and groom during these times to make sure they still have a special and memorable day is so important to us! We look forward to seeing you soon! Sincerely, Thomas Anderson

We attended a wedding at Hotel Providence and stayed two nights. The hotel couldn’t have been a better place to gather with family and friends to celebrate the happy occasion. The staff was super accommodating and the rooms were very comfortable. The lobby is gorgeous and not at all cookie cutter. The wedding was perfect and it all was magical. I can’t WAIT to return for a long weekend to take advantage of all the great places around the hotel - Providence Performing Arts Center, Trinity Rep, Federal Hill and so many amazing restaurants - all within walking distance!

As stated in your title, We here at Hotel Providence try to make every stay a " memorable stay" . The hotel goes above and beyond to make sure each guest does not only have a pleasant stay but a true experience, one they will remember every time they think of Providence. Our beautiful hotel and stellar service make us the #1 hotel in Providence and we are proud to hold this title. Although the hotel would not be what it is if not for its amazing surroundings. We are just around the corner from PPAC and Trinity Rep as well as walking distance to the famous Federal Hill ( Italian food sounds amazing on this cold winter day ) We look forward to seeing you soon, the city awaits you! Sincerely, Thomas Anderson

I stayed here this year for a wedding and what an absolutely amazing place. The hospitality they provided was amazing. I was in the wedding party and arrived before check-in because we had things to do and they made accommodations. The wedding was also at Hotel Providence and it was the highlight of my year! Amazing venue and food! I love this place!!! Will def be staying here every time I’m in providence!!! Spectacular hotel, spectacular service.

What could otherwise be an intriguing scene from a CSI TV show, made me feel very uncomfortable getting into bed and trying to get some sleep. Did they really neglect to change the beddings?? I wonder. The paper thin walls, and management's decision to assign guests to adjacent rooms (even though the hotel was probably 1/4 full) - also did not contribute to my pleasant sleep. I might add that the computers and printers in the business center didn't work, which created quite a hassle for me. The hotel is beautiful, and would particularly appeal to travelers seeking old school charm. Yet, the shortcoming are too many. For an equivalent price, I would much rather stay at the Hilton Homewood Suites.
