Built around the history and culture of Providence, The Dean is a hotel that values collaboration with our neighbors. Filled with custom furniture, craftwork from local purveyors and found objects from Europe and beyond, The Dean revels in the details. This historical building has been elegantly transformed into a 52-room hotel in the heart of the Providence’s DownCity historic district - directly adjacent to the Rhode Island Convention Center, Dunkin Donuts Center, and within close walking distance to Brown, RISD, Johnson & Wales, the State Capitol and many corporations and historic sites. The Dean is host to Bolt Coffee in the lobby library, the Dean Bar, a European-style cocktail bar, north, our full service restaurant that cooks food and pour drinks that go in a lot of different directions, and the Boombox, a karaoke den with a bar and private singing rooms.

Clean, modern and stylish room, but European tiny. Not enough room on one side of the bed to get up at night, which for older folks was a potential hazard. No closet, no shelf space in bathroom, but the hipster element was high and it's location was great.

Consistently the best spot to stay in downtown Providence, especially if you plan to check out nightlife or Water Fire, etc. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff and GREAT location. Walkable to pretty much anything and everything in the city including the train station, Brown, RISD, PPAC, Trinity Rep., etc., and very short car ride to PVD airport.

Loved the hotel! I grew up in Providence so had no need to stay downtown. It was so fun doing it. Your location is great. The fact that you have a karaoke bar made the groups night! The room was great. Clean and nicely appointed. My only complaint is with the shower in my room. I hate rain shower heads. As a woman I don’t always want my hair to get wet. I also don’t understand not having a full door in the shower to keep the heat in. But it’s a very nice bathroom overall. Also the bed and pillows were very soft.

It's a very young place and does feel more like a dorm than a hotel. Very nice design concept and layout, but the antique elevator is almost dangerous and basic things like my tv need to be reset by the staff each time I turned it on. Could be more professional.
