The hotel lobby is beautiful and the hotel location is great. The rooms however are super tiny, as well as the bathroom. The A/C stayed at 70 all night even though it let us put in a lower number. The shower/tub filled with water taking a shower. Trouble draining.

Great value for a charming piece of RI's history. It's in walking distance to few shops and restaurants, although nothing is too far aware in Providence. Great staff, clean rooms, no surprise fees, convenient location.

Hotel is nicely decorated, well maintained and service was friendly. Only setback was a lack of amenities, like a pool or good food establishment. I would come back for the service, and I would try out other Graduate Hotels.

This was our first stay at Providence but our 2nd stay at a Graduate Hotel. This location was perfect. The interior is eclectic and posh, a feast for the eyes. We reserved a Premium room, which was clean and comfortable, albeit with a tiny bathroom. The 4 out of 5 rating was due to the lack of signage and information usually found in hotel rooms: places to shop, eat, visit, etc, and in the kitchenette, if you actually wished to use the hot plate, there weren't plates, cups, utensils, or pots and pans. Not that we needed these, as the fridge and microwave were enough, yet, paper cups and plates and utensils would be helpful. Gorgeous hotel, walking distance to restaurants, coffee shop in lobby and other shops around, and a cool park across the street.
