I can't image a better location for walking around Providence- almost exactly between College and Fed Hills. It's a very cool hotel, but I do agree with some reviewers who believe there is a little style over function going on. Shower heads could have been placed further in to avoid much of the water issues.
Bed was too soft for my liking, too. That said, it's a nice hotel for the price, and has a lot of extras we enjoyed. Did not miss the absence of a phone or closets. Light fixtures were very attractive and we loved the tiny old elevator.
