Although I feel lucky that the Hotel Providence was able to take our reservation at the last minute on a busy Waterfire weekend, I was disappointed in the overall experience. For the money, I've certainly had better stays elsewhere. First, the room was cold. We turned on the heat and left for our evening out only to return and find...

My husband and I were in Providence for one night and chose this hotel because it wasn't a chain. Our interactions with the staff were limited, but they were quite friendly. Our room was quite small (New York small), but it was clean, comfortable and well-appointed. The bathroom was also clean and the amenities were top-notch. I love a good...

Dear Pamela C. Thank you for taking the time to write a wonderful review on Trip Advisor. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, but concerned that you were disturbed by the sound of the church bells. When making your next reservation, please let our staff know that you would prefer a room away from the church....

Fabulous, fabulous location (couldn't be better), and the hotel has SO much charm from the lobby to the rooms to the bathrooms. Some things could definitely use a little updating, but it didn't affect our stay at all! The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows and nice linens. The bathrooms were very spacious with huge walk-in showers. There were...

This hotel is definitely a boutique hotel. Its not your traditional cookie cutter hotel that you find so often. Nice bed. Nice size bathroom. Valet parking is a nice option at a cost. Overall the room is a little small. Very friendly staff.

Many folks have never heard of this hotel...it's really a boutique gem. Beautiful and clean rooms..large baths. Lobby nothing special..doormen very attentive....fast valet in and out. Front desk...pleasant...upon calling they had trouble getting me directions....not good. Upon check in, realized though a courtyard view, the room was directly over output vent for restaurant so we moved to the back of...

The room was large, king bed, nice bathroom, very nicely done. There is a church close by that has chimes ringing at certain times. I am not a light sleeper, so I don't know if they rang at night. I liked them, but if you think it might bother you, you might want to consider another location. Pet friendly, I...

Attending a conference in Providence at the convention center, I just didn't want to stay in one of the big chain convention center hotels. Even though I wasn't picking up the tab, they were expensive and I'd be trapped in hallways and never get outside the confines of the conference. I picked Hotel Providence with some apprehension--was it too far...

I'm glad I was able to stay the The Hotel Providence on two separate occasions within a week of the other because I was able to see how nice a place it can be. The place as a very lovely low key luxury feel about it. The rooms are spiffy and well organized-no doors bumping into desks. The restaurant is...

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.
