Two nights at Christopher Dodge house to explore Providence. The house itself is very imposing. The best bit was the breakfast room - high ceilings, exposed brick walls and lovely wood floor.
The staff were great - very helpful and pleasant.
Would say breakfast was average for this type of place - hot option available both mornings (although no choice) and freshly made cakes etc (fruit bread on first day was lovely)
We had a room on the ground floor, street side. Quite a small room but with a lovely comfortable bed. Luckily away from the interstate noise but on second night the people above were very noisy - clumping about for some time. I realise that this was not caused by the hotel itself but it is a function of the wooden floors.
The other downside of the room was the bathroom - very narrow and with a shower that took ages to get hot (there is a notice warning about this). However it was also quite low pressure so not an efficient shower at all!
Location is not that far from the downtown area - 15-20 min walk (nearer to Mall) and about the same over to Brown.
