The staff of this hotel go the extra mile for their guests. My husband stays here weekly for business and it is absolutely his preferred choice. First the pros: the club lounge is great and worth upgrading for- the food served exceeds expectations, the gym has everything you need, it is in a perfect location just steps from the mall & downtown and the restaurant in the lobby would be worth a visit on its own. The service culture is evident throughout. On the flip side, while they are undergoing a renovation and trying to cultivate a hip vibe, there is something about it that misses the mark. The restaurant needs a facelift too, but the food is great! I'm not sure if the rooms will also be renovated, but there is room for improvement. The beds were not the type that Marriott is known for, and we're ok but not high on the comfort scale.
Hint: upgrade to Club Lounge access. The breakfast and late afternoon food will exceed expectations. The Providence Mall is a block away. The Biltmore hotel is a 10 minute walk and has a full spa with very reasonable prices and great service. Ask for a room with a view. They can be spectacular.
