We ran away from home for a night in Providence. The Biltmore is lovely, the staff charming, the bar has great food & we will go back soon & often. The hotel is a classic beauty. There are loads of fun bars & restaurants. Very walkable.

This hotel could be a great place but really failed during our visit. The date above is incorrect because our stay date was not available. We stayed in April and May of 2015. We came to Providence for our 25th anniversary and chose this hotel because it looked special. First, there was a remodel going on and the ornate elevator... More

Great stay in Providence. Staff was friendly and attentive. Hotel is beautiful and the rooms were impeccable. Great views from the 18th floor and central to everything in Downtown Providence/Brown/RISD

perfect location, close to the mall and restaurants. Valet staff has great dinner & bar recommendations. The staff at McCormick&Schmidts is awesome, really enjoyed Megan & Crystal behind the bar. Yes its a historic hotel but the room size is good, bathroom a bit small. Ask for a view of the capital&park.

Even though it is an older building, the hotel has been updated but still keeps the "older" features of the building that makes it charming. The lobby was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season. The hotel staff was extremely polite and helpful. We stayed in a suite and the rooms were large and very clean. It was a great value...

We always stay here when in Proividence. The historic nature of the hotel really makes the difference. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The location is central to most things downtown. This hotel always is above the rest in the Providence area.

Room temp was too hot and resetting the thermostat lower didn't help. Room service never arrived and when we called they laughed at us. Walked in late one evening from dinner and asked where the bathroom was and desk clerk said they were only in rooms yet I found a bathroom one flight of stairs up from front door. Not... More

We have an annual event in Providence, and I wouldn't think of spending it anywhere else than the Biltmore. Having a family we love the 2 King Size beds that we get in a suite. The hotel has a unique charm. the high ceilings, large windows that open,and really big rooms. There are layers of paint, but that just adds... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with us. We truly appreciate your loyalty to our property. The 2 King Bed Junior Suite is definitely one of our family favorites. With the extra living space and a 2 king beds there is no other hotel in the area with similar accommodations. So glad to keep seeing you... More

The room set up was very odd. No full length mirror. Had to call to request bedding for pull our even though the hotel knew we had two guests. Room service was horrible. Requested first delivery at 6:45 am, arrived over 1/2 late and was unable to eat or get a refund.
