I absolutely love this hotel! It's my favorite in Providence. For me, I am all about the atmosphere, and this property has the glimmering pulse of Providence running through it. This hotel is the scene. It's fabulous, stylish, and refreshing. Everything is modern but with the elegant structure and core of the historical Masonic temple that's original to its location....

Everyone was great here. It was a lovely, modern hotel in a great location. The person at check in was very sweet. She helped us get a room with a cool view. It was our anniversary weekend and they sent up a bottle of champagne with a handwritten note. It was totally unexpected and so thoughtful! The little touches made... More

As someone who comes to Providence often to visit family, I am in constant need of a hotel in the downtown area. Hearing great things about this property as well as reading reviews on here I thought I would give it a try. Unfortunately my stay here was not up to the standards beholden of a Renaissance property. The location... More

We stayed for 4 nights and had a great time in Providence. It is a lovely hotel with beautiful exterior architectural facades across from the Rhode Island State House. We had a nice quiet clean room with a comfortable bed and a lovely view of the beautiful Rhode Island State House. The staff were very friendly and courteous. Many thanks... More

We stayed at this hotel on our way to and back from Cape Cod. It's in a former Masonic Temple, which gives it an interesting vibe. The staff is very friendly; the rooms are clean and well appointed and the view we had of the Capitol building was great.

This hotel was in an excellent location. It was renovated in November, 2015, so everything looked pretty new. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The rooms were very clean. We had a group dinner and the food and service was excellent. If I were to nit-pick, I would say that the shower heads were not powerful enough to really... More

Beautiful (though small) room was stylish, quiet, comfortable and clean. Bedding was AMAZING. Nice view of the capitol. Valet staff was very friendly. We arrived late in the evening, and were disappointed not to have more options for a late night snack offered by reception staff (go to the in house restaurant or buy a candy bar). Convenient, central location,... More

Whenever we stay in Providence, this is our first choice! It resides in an architectural gem... and is well-maintained, modern, clean, quiet and friendly. We've stayed here several times and have never been disappointed. Would highly recommend!

Recommend this hotel very highly. Spacious and clean rooms. Bed was amazingly comfortable. Had good amenities. Friendly staff. Location was in walking distance from everything we wanted to see. Close to restaurants and shopping. Very pleased overall, real value for the cost!

Spent two nights in Providence at the Renaissance. Great welcome from doorman Mike and the desk staff was wonderful -- helped in changing a dinner reservation for us. Room was immaculate, modern, very nice and large. Would have liked a stall shower, but bath was fine. Had a drink at the bar with a lovely bartender. The breakfast was poor.... More
