This hotel was wonderful and absolutely stunning. The location for walking around with it's proximity to the State House and the shopping center is superb. The hotel smells amazing and the decor is gorgeous. Our room was big and the bed was super comfy. We did eat at the restaurant downstairs and it was delicious. The parking is a bit...

I would highly recommend staying at this Renaissance in Providence, conveniently located right across from the state capital, just less than a block away from the mall, and Amtrak train station. There were some disturbances that made the beginning of the stay less enjoyable, but the staff was very pleasant and extremely accommodating. Alex checked me in without any troubles....

Fantastic location, immaculate, big rooms, super bathrooms and an incredible value! We would highly recommend. Super view of the State Capital and a short walk to the Providence Mall. Online check in was very easy to make for our arrival at our time.

I have to give the Staff (Courtney, Danny, Beth, Steve and Lisa) 5+ Stars. Every detail and request was met with a smile. The App that they use during meetings is a great tool. You do not have to come outside. Everything is at your fingertips. Not to mention, I loved the modern artsy decor of the hotel. The hotel...

We had 4 girls, we were able to get an upgrade to a suite, it worked out beautifully. We had plenty of room. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. We also received club lounge privileges because of my Marriott platinum status. The staff was very fun in the club lounge. I would definitely stay here again. Our suite...

We spent the night here on a road trip through Rhode Island. It was immaculately clean and modern. Front desk and valet parking staff were courteous and personable. I'd stay here again and again. Only con was the people in the room next to us had their TV volume very high until midnight. No real view, but we were not...

I've stayed at the hotel many times before and travel fairly regularly to Providence and had always chose the Renaissance over other local hotels for its more 'boutique' feel. This time though it was a disaster... When I checked in for a 4 night booking (supposedly in a club room) I was given a room that directly faced a wall....
