Classy hotel in the heart of Providence. Check in was smooth and quick. We got a room on the sixth floor. A robe and some chocolates on the bed greeted us. This room is so colorful with the colors of blue and gold heavily draped curtains to the red striped wallpaper in the bathroom. His and hers recessed lights above the bed. The room included a safe, frig, and two free bottles of water. The most surprising feature was the closet space with two doors - one door by the room and other one at the bathroom. You could walk thru the closet to get to bathroom. It is nice feature to grab your clothes from the closet while in the bathroom. I prefer to enter the normal way to bathroom which had these French doors. Overall, A comfortable and clean room.
I did not try the restaurant/lounge on site. I did go to the gym and it is really impressive. Everything is brand new and modern. There are green apples for you to take by the gym entrance. There is a lounge for Marriott members but it was closed on Saturdays and reopens on Sunday late afternoon.
The only downside was the valet parking fee of $26. There are many valets working and you call from your room to get your car because it takes a few minutes for them to retrieve it. The valets were really great as they ask if you needed directions as you receive your car. You are across the street from the Providence mall. If you have a car, drive to Federal Hill neighborhood, and go park at Atwells ave. A lively main st of restaurants, bars, and shops.
