There was absolutely nothing to do in providence for real if you are a college student. So at the time I would always go to this mall. This is 17 years ago mind you, so the mall was kinda new. It had all of the stores I would frequent and then some. I'm from the Midwest and never heard of... More

Two reasons I marked this at three stars. First, it was too hard to get too, overcrowded and traffic patterns clogged for parking. Second, getting out was just as painful...we went to the much shorter "cash only" line and thank goodness I had a passenger in my car because you actually have to get out of your car at the... More

Providence Place Mall is a relatively new mall in Providence, Rhode Island, it has a nice collection of stores including Macy's, DSW, gamestop, and many many others. It also has a nice food court. There are big glass panels on the roof which lets the sun in and gives it a relaxing, roomy feel.

I had never been to this mall and I definitely do not plan on going back. I thought the traffic going in was going to be bad enough but the traffic exiting was even worse. It literally took us over an hour just to get out of the parking garage. There has got to be a better way!

Coming from a person who does NOT frequent malls. ..this is a great one to go to. Even for just walking as I did. My favorite find was the Lego store and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I'm not an upscale type of shopping person (unless it is at a thrift shop)...the food court had an amazing selection of foods and... More

Very big mall! The parking garages are very confusing tho. Lots of stores and places to eat. Macy's and Norstoms are the anchor stores. Lots to do at the mall.

I have been to this mall several times, however, my most recent visit was during my time spent in Providence going to Rhode Island Comic Con back in 2016.

If you have ever been to the parking garage at the PPMall, it's joke. When they are crowded the average wait time for the average person following the rules is 35-45 minutes. There is always a machine down to pay for your lousy 2.00 ticket. People get wise when leaving the garage and drive up one way do not enter... More

Ate at a restaurant nearby, and stopped in for a walk to burn some calories and time. The mall is bright and has a huge selection of stores. Yes, parking is a bit confusing to access the mall- but it all makes sense once you get to the level you're intending to visit.
