A Providence friend recommended this hotel and I was not disappointed. It's a bit quirky - particularly with the hotel layout and back alley views from the room. But the staff was very nice and accommodating and the room was nicely appointed. Not your typical hotel - in a good way.

Hotel's Favorite
My husband bought theater tickets to a show at the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC) for my birthday. We were driving down from Boston and decided to make a weekend of it. We chose the Hotel Providence based on the wonderful reviews here on TripAdvisor, and we're so glad we did! I had emailed general manager Matt Chauvin in advance, explained that we would be celebrating my 65th birthday that weekend and were first-time visitors to Providence and we would appreciate dining and sightseeing recommendations, which he kindly provided. Apparently he also notified the front desk staff. They wished me a happy birthday when we checked in, and we were surprised and delighted to discover when we entered our room that we had been upgraded to a large, beautiful suite! The linens and furniture were lovely and included a stunning marble-topped, marquetry-embellished piece in the entryway. The mattress was extremely supportive and comfortable. The huge bathroom included Beekman toiletries and a deep, jetted soaker tub. There were waffle-weave cotton robes and slippers in the closet. Most of the artwork was original. The suite was named for Theodor Seuss Geisel (AKA Dr. Seuss) and there was, appropriately, a stack of the author's books. From the doorman to the front desk staff to the valet parking attendant, all the staff were friendly, efficient and professional and made us feel very welcome. We thank them for making this milestone birthday celebration extra special. The hotel's Backstage restaurant had been reserved for a private party for the weekend, so we didn't get an opportunity to try it this time, but we did catch a glimpse of some of the desserts being brought from the kitchen to the restaurant and they looked amazing. We look forward to dining there on our next visit and perhaps eating in the lovely courtyard if weather permits. The location is absolutely perfect - smack in the middle of the Downcity area, just a couple of blocks from the PPAC and a stone's throw from the three main streets (Weybosset, Westminter and Washington) that feature lots of wonderful shopping and restaurants. My husband and I are already thinking about planning another visit to Providence and the Hotel Providence.

This is a great hotel. I've stayed here three times and think the world of it. Lovely rooms with good beds (always important). It is also very conveniently located, with lots of restaurants nearby. It is walking distance to Federal Hill and Brown University (about .5 miles either way). I highly recommend it.
