Ok. So, we had a few little snafus. As I see a few other reviewer commented, our heater didn't work consistently. We did finally get it figured out. Then, we had a bit of a maintenance issue ... they cleaned something we asked them not to clean. It was very unfortunate, however, the management (Ryan) really stepped up and did...

I have stayed at this beautiful hotel on a number of occasions for extended trips on business. I keep going back because of the helpful & friendly staff, the fine rooms and the location (it is a very short walk up a hill to get there, in case if that bothers you). The bar is a lively place that has...

Beautiful hotel facing the state capitol building. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. We had difficulty finding a restaurant with an open table for dinner and the concierge called several restaurants to secure us a table -- and his recommendation was outstanding. Given it's location at the top of a hill...

I would consider this a Boutique Hotel in a historic building downtown Providence. Only there for one night on business but will return sometime for a weekend. The rooms are well done which can be a challenge sometimes in old historic buildings but they pulled it off here. Really comfortable bed. Service is excellent which is a hallmark of Marriott....

I rate hotels on the quality of the food, the sleep and the bar, the sleep was good and the bar staff are friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. I didn't dine this time but had breakfast the first day. The food was ok but the service very slow, given that there were only 2 of us in the whole restaurant it...

The hotel was recently renovated and was very nicely decorated and clean. It's a good spot for business as you are right in the city of Providence. There is a restaurant and 1 block from a shopping mall.

Met several of my college friends here for a reunion weekend. Everyone from the valet to the front desk staff were wonderful, friendly, and efficient. Rooms were especially clean, very updated and sleek. Beds were comfortable and rooms very quiet, bathroom was also quite large freshly stocked with AVEDA products!!.
