Hotel Providence has it all, wonderfully attentive staff, lovely rooms, well placed for the centre of town and above all, excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend it to others and would definitely come back.

The dining room is fun as is the outdoor tent. It's a great place for dining and cocktails if you're going to PPAC or Johnson & Wales. Pat DeGrace, Sales Manager is a wonderful person to work with if you're thinking of holding a meeting, wedding, etc.

Needed a quick recharge but didn't have the luxury of traveling. Booked a package for one night at Hotel Providence and spent a lovely 20 odd hours enjoying seeing a local city from a visitor's perspective. The hotel was comfortable and well appointed, the food in the on site restaurant Aspire, delicious (but a Summer Seasonal menu in mid-October??), staff... More

I spent only one night at this hotel while in town on business, but would happily return. The room was well-appointed and the staff was friendly and helpful (even when I needed my car EARLY on the morning of my departure). The area is quirky and fun (welcome to the arts district) even if this traveler was too tired to... More

Mandatory Valet Parking $28, in room current movies $17, bottled water $4, pricey breakfast menu. My discounted room turn out not to be such a bargain. If you are looking for value, stay somewhere else.

Lovely hotel, surrounded by great bars and restaurants. We only stayed the one night, but there was plenty to do around Providence. The hotel was very clean, and staff were friendly. Would definitely stay again

My partner, the dog and I stayed one night here for business/travel. What a great hotel! The workers at the valet parking were always courteous and nice, check in took less than 5 minutes (plus she didn't even charge me for having our dog with us!), and the room was clean and spotless. The bathroom was renovated and shiny, and... More

Bar an restaurant closed for a wedding the night we stayed. We had a drink in the room. A glass of lukewarm white wine and a bowl of nuts set us back over $80! Other than that, room was super, bed very comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Was very impressed. Well-appointed, boutique feel but not too small. Lovely, and beautifully furnished rooms. Spacious bathrooms with nice marble floors. Staff not overly friendly but perfectly polite. Would stay again. Great location.
