“Very Good!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Excellent hotel with really big rooms with everything you would need(atleast for a business traveller!) This is atleat the 3rd or 4th time I have stayed at this hotel and the rooms, service and food have been consistently good. Great location too with the Providence Place Mall just a few minutes walk from the hotel....this is as good a hotel as any you would find in Providence!

Great hotel, wonderful location. Best hotel staff ever-- from the front desk to the valet parking attendant. Hope you are lucky enough to get a room with a view of the Capitol building...you'll love it! Beautiful room and wonderful bed. Not a negative thought during my stay.

Room Tip: Request a room with view of the Capitol building--you'll love it!

This was our first time visiting Providence, RI and the Renaissance Providence Hotel made our visit very enjoyable. From the moment we checked in, Juan at the front desk was extremely helpful and provided us with a map of the city and made recommendations for places to visit. The onsite restaurant is excellent. We ate there 3 times in our two days and our waitress Kristen was fantastic. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay!

Room Tip: If possible, get a room with a view of the Capital building.

From check in to check out, the hotel was excellent! The desk clerks recommended a wonderful restaurant, the valet was wonderful and so accommodating. The room was spacious and the bed wonderfully comfortable! We would definitely stay there again.

We usually stay at another hotel in Providence when we go there but they were all booked. Thankfully this hotel had rooms available. My whole family was very pleased with the hotel including my 2 teenagers. The rooms were very clean and large and the beds were comfortable. The staff was more than accommodating, very friendly and knowledgable. We will be staying here from now on.

Convenient location, helpful attentive staff and a spacious, well appointed room. Reasonable and fast Internet, an excellent breakfast and good tips from the chap on reception about what to see and do in Providence.

Only slight negatives were we couldn't work the TV (entirely our fault I'm sure) and they could have done a better job pointing out where their bar was.

Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend.
