On the spur of the moment I booked a room at the Hotel Dolce Villa on Federal Hill, Providence. I took the train from Boston and grabbed a 6 dollar cab from the station to this quaint hotel in the DePasquale Plaza surrounded by awesome restaurants. When I got to the hotel at almost 10pm, the clerk upgraded me to a 2 bedroom suite with fully stocked kitchen and lovely balcony overlooking the plaza. He made some dinner suggestions and gave me discount coupons. Everyone I asked said the same thing; that the bar for good restaurants is high on Federal Hill and you can't go wrong with any choice of eateries. The suite was clean and spacious, the beds comfortable and I felt very safe and secure. The weather was a little cool but I could imagine that in the warmer weather, the sounds of music and people strolling the plaza would be fun to experience. (especially sitting out from the balcony with a glass of red wine!) Tons of outside seating for alfresco dining. Right around the corner from the hotel was a sweet hookah bar called Smoke. These hookah bars abound on the Hill and it was something I had never experienced. I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun it was. The music and dj was fabulous. There was a bakery in the plaza that was fab and the next morning I ate at the Dolce Villa Cafe *
(with a 20%coupon from the very personable clerk, I wish I wrote his name down. The owners certainly have a great employee there) The desk is manned 24 hours and they couldn't be more agreeable) I will definitely come back to the Hotel Dolce Villa.
