The Omni Providence is connected to the Providence Place Mall and across the street from the "Riverwalk" area. The location is excellent if you're there for an event at the Dunkin' Donuts Center or to participate in one of the Riverwalk events. Also great if you're into shopping - lots of shops and restaurants to choose from and they're all within the complex.
On check-in, they had a little adventure kit with backpack for my son. That was a really nice touch and actually pushed my grade from "Average" to "Very Good".
The rooms themselves were a "C+" overall. It was a bit dated. When I opened the cabinet next to the chest of drawers, there were holes where there used to be a microfridge.
You'll want a room that is not on the I-95 side of the hotel unless you find the sound of traffic to be soothing. There are also a lot of thumping bass and loud exhausts; kids cruising the mall area. There's a decent pool and hot tub, which we did use. My young son enjoyed it but if you're looking to do laps, it's not very large. It got crowded pretty quick.
The next time I'm in Providence for an event, I'm going to seek other lodging. For the cost of the room (~$110/night), I really can't complain about the stay.
