I grew up visiting my aunt on the Brown University campus but I hadn't really explored Providence as an adult. I decided to drive up from NYC and tour the city with my boys; we had a fabulous time. There was a wine and cheese reception at arrival and the boys then made a bee-line to the pool. It was a fantastic indoor-outdoor pool with popsicles for the kids and a glass of prosecco for me. We then walked along the river (the city is much safer than I remembered it being 15 yrs ago), had dinner at Jacky's overlooking Waterfire Place and then walked up the steps of the beautiful Capitol. My husband was picked up by shuttle from the train station that night and we drove around College Hill and down to Little Compton the next day, making it back in time for Waterfire. And the boys were so impressed to receive a surprise bag of toys and candies in the room Saturday night.
I didn't get to use the gym, but it looked quite good for a hotel gym. All in all, the rooms were comfortable, the pool was fantastic and the hotel staff was exceptional. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are planning a stop-over on the way to the Cape this weekend.
