Went here a few years ago with my husband. We had never been to Providence before, so we were excited to see the city. The staff was very helpful when it came to directions into town and restaurant recommendations. The hotel is within walking distance of the downtown area and Brown University. Downtown Providence is adorable! The room was quaint...

The Hotel Providence is a very pretty hotel. It's only about five or six years old, but it's in an old building that has a lot of character. The room and bathroom were both beautiful. The bathroom is marble with pretty, old-style fixtures. Very pretty decor. They even have a scale. We had a superior room with two queen beds,...

Central location, nice restaurant, great staff. Only complaint is that the room was a little small. Stayed here during a blizzard and couldn't leave and received a discounted stay. Will certainly come back the next time I am in Providence, RI.

After reading selected reviews, we selected Hotel Providence with some minor hesitation. But we couldn't have been more pleased by the experience. We stayed for an overnight getaway in February looking simply to relax and un-wind. The simple exterior really hides a beautiful property inside. And the rooms were very large and well appointed. We were within walking distance to...
