I do agree with some of the reviews with this hotel
And have mixed feeling with my experience at this particular property.
I had to stay here for two nights since my company paid for it.
The hotel's lobby is elegant but this mixed with the reception staff who seemed a bit cold, partly due to the fact that they may be told to demonstrate a sense of professionalism and class........thus whole pretentious attitude bothered me, this is Providence not Paris.
My room was very small as other reviewers have noted. The bed was a full size and not the king that was stated in my reservation and I had a view of an ugly building. I did find some hairs on the duvet and that disgusted me. The bathroom proved to be clean and spacious and was almost the size of the actual guest room.
The block that the hotel is located in seemed undesirable, I did notice a strip club half a block down. If you are willing to walk 5 to 6 blocks to the better neighbourhood you can find some nice restaurants and shops.
I would not pay to stay here since I think that Providence has better and less expensive hotels in better areas.
I did not try the restaurant since it seemed empty and not very inviting.
On a positive note I should add that the valet attendants where very nice and attentive.
