“Beautifully Restored House, wonderful caring staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

We stayed at Christopher Dodge House for a week while in Providence for family business. The house is beautifully restored and many rooms are heated with either gas powered fireplaces or "wood" stoves which impart fabulous atmosphere. The beds are incredibly comfortable and our room had two comfortable reclining chairs. We were on the street side of the house so our room was very quiet and the large shuttered windows afforded plenty of light and views.The included breakfasts were delicious, varied and sumptuous and there were always delicious cookies and pastries available any time day or night. Our stay in Providence needed to be extended (twice!) and the ownership and staff were incredibly gracious and accommodating in working with us. Thank you all.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the side of the house away from the interstate.

My son and I were in the area checking out some of the local universities and chose the CDH because of its location and reviews. We were not disappointed at all. The staff (especially our new friend from Louisiana) was very friendly and attentive, the B&B was cozy and clean and the morning breakfast (eggs, french toast, fruit, etc.) was fantastic. Bonuses are the free parking, free Wi-Fi, cable TV and a very inviting common room complete with coffee/tea, the daily newspaper and delicious homemade snacks. Brown was a bit far for walking but doable. The downtown mall and local eateries are near as is the state capitol. My compliments to the owners and if my son decides to attend school in the area, we'll definitely be back.

Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a great pleasure to have the both of you with us and it was a joy to meet new friends from Louisiana. We wish the best for your son in choosing the college that will benefit him the most and if it happens to be in Providence, please let us know. It would be great to see you all again. Blessings.

My girlfriend and I were pleasantly surprised by this gem of a building so close to the state house. I booked a night in a standard king room here and we were assigned to a room on the top floor. The room was spacious with a beautiful gas fireplace, armchairs and a well-maintained bathroom. The manager was very helpful, giving us a tour of the building and a map of the city. We were impressed with the hot breakfast of stuffed strawberry french toast. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: The stairs to the second and third floors are quite steep. Also, some guests may find the highway n...

I absolutely loved the CDH in Providence. As a Christmas present to my boyfriend, I booked a night in a standard king bedroom at the B&B. We had a fire going all night, wonderfully attentive staff members and a delicious meal in the morning. We cannot WAIT to go back!

My fiancé and I spent two nights her mid January.
The booking was simple via the internet however I question the standard of the room provided. We were allocated a room on the top floor and informed it was the superior room we had paid for. The room although large was dated and on each day the rugs remained dirty following house keeping. Our bathroom was fine- nothing special and on one occasion the towel I used had a large grey dust line from where it had been folded and left.
Breakfast was edible but nothing fancy in comparison to other B and B's we have experienced in New England. One hot option and a cold packet buffet selection. During breakfast on our last day the milk left for coffees had turned sour and we had finished breakfast before we were able to tell staff.
The hotel itself is incredibly noisy so I'd advise paying a little extra or searching a deal for better accommodation with more sound proofing!

My wife and i stayed here on a friday night and it was fabulous! Old style house feel with fireplaces and brick all throughout makes a nice cozy feel especially in december. The staff was extremely friendly and gave us a great tour of the inn. When it was time to go to dinner and our play the lady at the front door called us a cab which was very nice of her. After we got back at around 11:30 we went up to the common room and enjoyed complimentary tea and pastries that are available 24 hours a day. Our room came complete with a brick fire place and a full bathroom that was perfect for the two of us. The inn is in a great location close to downtown, not walking distance but a very short and inexpensive cab ride. Complimentary parking as well. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. The dining room has 4 tables in it, and the chef comes in and takes your order for the hot item of the day which was egg nog waffles and sausage which were great! There is yogurt, fruit, granola, oatmeal hard boiled eggs, toast, pastries and bagels laid out for the taking and juices, tea and coffee as well. Overall a fabulous experience! I would recommend this for a romantic getaway or just a night away. Excellent!

Stayed at the Christopher Dodge House overnight on a recent trip to visit our daughters. The Inn had large and comfortable rooms, friendly staff and excellent breakfast! We will definitely stay at the Inn next time we visit Providence.
