The hotel itself is gorgeous. Lovely old building. Gorgeous posh interiors. However there were a couple of drawbacks that would make me think twice before I stayed here again. The housekeeping staff was NOT on point. Frequently they forgot things like toiletries and frequently I felt that the room was just given a quick once over. The front staff is...

Hotel Providence is top notch. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Incredibly polite and helpful staff. Easy walk to convention center. Room service for breakfast was very reasonable and the food was great.

We have stayed here on several occasions because of its convenient location and superlative staff. We understand that the brick, mortar, and some of the facility's systems are not state of the art. In spite of some of the facility's shortfalls, we have found the convenience and staff so superlative that we keep going back.

This hotel is a beautiful, immaculate, and completely restored historic hotel situated in downtown Providence. The rooms are spacious and homey. The entire staff is extremely professional. In the morning we had our breakfast delivered to our room from the hotel restaurant that is located on the ground level. We later walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner, and capped...

It's been quite some time since I've been to Providence so I was unfamiliar with this hotel. Not much to look at from the outside but wow! Wonderful, sparkling clean, very well appointed rooms. Everything looked new. Great find!

So happy we picked this charming boutique hotel for our college visit trip to Providence! Beautiful place with super-friendly staff; spacious, clean, beautifully appointed room; easy valet parking. Great breakfast at the restaurant! We will definitely stay here again next time we're in Providence.

The Hotel was very clean and the rooms were large and well appointed. We arrived on a Sunday early evening and the property seemed short of staff at the front desk. We tried to order room service several times but no one answered the phone which went to reservations twice. We were hoping for better service.

I have stayed at a few places in Providence. This one has for sure the nicer rooms. Unfortunately the service is not the best. Very unprofessional and lost at reception and check in. The bar restaurant is even worse. Very run down and a very limited selection of alcohol and food. Overall a nice place for a non brand hotel.

Stayed there on New years Eve 2016 and loved our stay. Our dog was welcome and the hotel staff was accommodating, friendly and helpful.

I stayed here for the night prior to an interview at Brown's University Hospital for residency.
