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. The rooms are lovely, comfortable and well-appointed and the location, my primary reason for choosing the hotel, could not be beaten! There is a small dog park around the corner, and this boutique property was within...

I stayed here for the night prior to an interview at Brown's University Hospital for residency. I chose to stay here since it seemed like a unique hotel in a cute downtown area and it was close to the hospital. I drove in from NJ and it was a little difficult to find in the dark among all the narrow...

Visited Hotel Providence for a 1-night mid-week stay to see a concert in downtown Providence in early December.

The ambiance of this boutique hotel in downtown Providence was quite nice. The staff was very professional. We stayed on a Sunday night so it was very quiet. Looking forward to coming back another time during a busier time of the week.

We stayed at this hotel because we wanted to take in Providence for an evening before heading down to Newport for the Holiday decorations. We found this hotel on Hotels.com, and it had a great rate. The hotel itself is right in the middle of everything -- a slightly seedy part of town with a homeless breakfast at the church...

We stayed for a weekend and had an excellent experience. The hotel is beautiful, room and bathroom clean and modern. Staff was outstanding. They accommodated a rush dry cleaning request which was very much appreciated. Location and hotel building itself was perfect.
