The Renaissance feels upscale and elegant. The lobby is beautiful, the staff at the front desk and friendly and professional. The rooms were well-furnished and very comfortable - the Aveda bath products (including mouth wash) were a nice bonus. I was upgraded to club room access which was an unexpected delight. The club room serves a complimentary breakfast in the morning, sodas/bottled waters in the afternoon and a limited but still impressive evening hors d'oeurve service starting around 5:30pm (dessert follows at 8pm - it was cheesecake the night I was there). Other hotels have similar services with much more variety but this was plenty. The location is terrific - downtown, about a 2 min walk from the new mall (with a Panera, Cheesecake Factory, PF Chang; Nordstrom too) and a short (~15-20 min) walk to Brown University/RISD. This was my first time in Providence and I was surprised by how much I liked the city. The Renaissance had a lot to do with that.
