We stayed 2 nites in April 2012 for my son's basketball tournament and to visit another son at an area college. As others have mentioned, its all about location. Several colleges are nearby and there is easy on/easy off access to I-95. Easy walk to restaurants, The Dunk Center, and very large indoor mall. Ask at the desk for discount coupons to area restaurants. The staff is very friendly and eager to help.
Room - We were on the 11th floor and never had a problem getting an elevator. Room was very clean and well appointed and temp was easily controlled. Room is slightly small but for a city hotel I have no complaints. Bathroom was very clean and towels were plush and plentiful. Only minor issue was bathroom fan is inadequate. After showering the room looked like a steam room. Very minor. There is M-F newspaper delivery and on weekends I saw the NY Times and a Boston paper available for sale at the front desk. I think the Sat. NY Times was $2.50 and they can charge it to your room. The hotel seemed very busy but rooms were quiet.
There is a gym and and indoor pool both of which we saw but did not use. They both looked good.
There is a Starbucks located just outside the Hilton. You literally have to go down a small flight of outdoor stairs. So convenient. There is also excellent coffee in the room to make. The coffee maker is very easy to use and looked pretty new.
While I don't love paying $25/nt to self park, I found the parking garage very convenient and always found a parking space. Also the garage and area surrounding the hotel seemed very safe and well lighted. Once you park at the hotel you don't have to take your car out to shop or eat. Everything you could possible need is in short walking distance. We have stayed in hotels further from downtown Providence and the hassle to go out to eat or shop and park isn't worth it. You think you can save money by staying slightly further away but you really don't save anything in the long run. There is a Hilton shuttle, but we did not use it.
