My first stay at the Renaissance Providence was only 4 weeks after the hotel opened. We couldn't have asked for more! Great price, gorgeous decor throughout the hotel, perfectly clean rooms (and not just because they were new -- excellent housekeeping staff), and an amazingly accommodating front desk staff.
The hotel is adjacent to the State House, a beautiful historic building in the day, and amazingly lit up at night. A major shopping mall is within walking distance, and the hotel is just a short drive from Brown University.
I returned to Providence a few years later, mostly because of of the amazing experience I had at this hotel. Nothing had changed -- it was as wonderful as it was the first time! On this trip, I lost a set of bracelets, leaving them behind in the hotel room. The Renaissance staff went out of their way to be helpful, locating the missing jewelry and sending them by Fedex to my home.
Without reservation, I can recommend the Renaissance Providence as a "Must Stay!"
Oh...and if you're into history, make sure you check out the amazing story behind the building.
