I am probably a little biased since I cam to the Marriott after months staying in hostels (Providence doesn't have one).
Just one tip if you're arriving by public transport - make sure you get a taxi. i opted to walk (being on a budget) and it was a hot, gruelling, uphill struggle.
The staff were friendly and helpful, having no problem letting me check in before the allocated time.
The room was spacious, comfortable, well-cleaned and stocked.
The pool area was clean and pleasant.
The location wasn't particularly central but I was able to walk (now without luggage) anywhere i wanted to go. It was particularly handy for the "Lovecraft Trail" which was what I was there to see.
My big problem was with the restaurant. The menu was extremely restricted and what I had was bland, I would go so far as to say tasteless, and overpriced.
If you eat out I would highly recommend this for the bargain price I paid.
