“Hidden Costs”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Mandatory Valet Parking $28, in room current movies $17, bottled water $4, pricey breakfast menu. My discounted room turn out not to be such a bargain. If you are looking for value, stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Stay away from the noisy street.

Lovely hotel, surrounded by great bars and restaurants. We only stayed the one night, but there was plenty to do around Providence. The hotel was very clean, and staff were friendly. Would definitely stay again

We booked a junior suite. We loved our room, it was very spacious, very comfy bed, large bathroom. The hotel has a great location. We walked everywhere. Short walk to Federal Hill where there are so many great Italian Restaurants. The staff at the Hotel Providence are the Best. We had breakfast at their restaurant. It was excellent and the wait person was terrific. I would highly recommend this hotel. A very good value for the price. The assistant Manager (Daniel) was very professional, we had a littlr problem with our pick-up from the airport, but he took care of everything for us. He was very professional. If we ever return to Providence RI, we would stay at the Hotel Providence.



alue for the price. The assistant manager (Daniel) was very professional, we had alittle problem with our pick-up from the airport, but he took care of everything for us and did make it up to us.

Room Tip: Do not select a room on the church side because of the bells ringing.

My partner, the dog and I stayed one night here for business/travel. What a great hotel! The workers at the valet parking were always courteous and nice, check in took less than 5 minutes (plus she didn't even charge me for having our dog with us!), and the room was clean and spotless. The bathroom was renovated and shiny, and the water speed was great. There's even free & fast wireless internet in the room! We looked out the window and could see tents where the beer garden probably happens on weekends and we can see why it might get loud, but it was dead quiet all night. There was even a small area set up just to welcome dogs. We definitely recommend this hotel to everyone!

Room Tip: Ask for high level rooms and ones facing the back to avoid loud noise from the bar across the street...

Bar an restaurant closed for a wedding the night we stayed. We had a drink in the room. A glass of lukewarm white wine and a bowl of nuts set us back over $80! Other than that, room was super, bed very comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The Westminster wing seemed to suffer from all-night drunken student noise from outside, though this...

Was very impressed. Well-appointed, boutique feel but not too small. Lovely, and beautifully furnished rooms. Spacious bathrooms with nice marble floors. Staff not overly friendly but perfectly polite. Would stay again. Great location.

I didn't spend a ton of time in the hotel. It has nice decor. The walls were thin. I was traveling for business and was next to a room with kids and could hear everything. There are only about 20 channels, no showtime. The deadbolt on my door didn't seem to be working and although I reported it, they didn't fix it. The bathroom was nice. I stopped by the coffee bar in the morning and asked for cocoa or teaand was told they had neither, it is really just coffee.The bed was so high that I had to work to climb in (I'm 5'3") and the mattress was a little hard. Overall, serviceable but not luxurious.

Room Tip: try not to be near the elevator. views are limited
