Exactly what you would expect from this caliber of hotel. Everyone greets you upon arrival and departure. Bill is especially wonderful on entering building and makes you feel as though you are his only guest. I crave the fruit infused water and treats upon arrival after a long day. Only complaints were that hot water didn't last long and I...

I had 3 stays over March and April 2017 at the beautiful Renaissance Providence hotel. This hotel reminds me more of a JW Marriott than a Renaissance--and it is unquestionably the nicest Renaissance property I've thus seen. (Admittedly, I am a SPG stalwart, so the Marriott portfolio is newer to me.) For all stays, I was given a King Suite...

We stayed at the Renaissance Providence for two nights while in town for a wedding. After reading other reviews, I requested a high floor for the optimal view of the state house. We were given a wonderful room on the 9th floor with a pretty view of the area/state house. The room was spacious with a large tv, mini fridge,...

Stayed here for 3 nights in early May 2017. Nice room that was very clean and well maintained. Service was very attentive. Vale parking was fast and efficient. Great bar in the level below the lobby. Breakfast was fast and efficient on all 3 mornings.

We have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions, both with and without our teenage children. We like it for the proximity to the downtown area. You can walk to a number of restaurants, shops, and bars. The location is also nice to take in the water fire, just a short walk away. The hotel is very well...

The hotel has been recently remodeled; the rooms are tastefully decorated and elegant. With regard to service, the front office staff & room service team are super friendly, the bar was very busy but they managed to take care of everyone. The pillows are my favorite, I'm going to try and purchase them!

Having lived in Rhode Island my whole life, and no more than an hour from any particular landmark in the state, I have passed by many hotels and B&Bs without giving them much thought. However, since its opening in 2007, I have always been curious about the Renaissance Hotel, a Marriott property, which rose from the ruins of a monumental,...

The hotel was well maintained & attractive. Service staff in the restaurant & bar area was friendly. The front was understaffed, but still provided good service. Beds were comfy! Would I stay again? Yes!

Well, maybe nightmare is a little extreme, however being lied to is never a dream come true. Let me first start by saying this is a beautiful hotel in a great location. But talk about being charged before you get out of the car, geesh. This hotel immediately hits you with a $28 a night parking fee, not to mention...

Hello Brandon Thank you for staying with us at the Renaissance as well as your very candid feedback. Please allow me the opportunity to address your concerns. As you are aware, the hotel does not have its own parking garage just like most hotels in the city. Our parking charge is very competitive within the city and our valets strive...
