I would consider this a Boutique Hotel in a historic building downtown Providence. Only there for one night on business but will return sometime for a weekend. The rooms are well done which can be a challenge sometimes in old historic buildings but they pulled it off here. Really comfortable bed. Service is excellent which is a hallmark of Marriott....

I rate hotels on the quality of the food, the sleep and the bar, the sleep was good and the bar staff are friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. I didn't dine this time but had breakfast the first day. The food was ok but the service very slow, given that there were only 2 of us in the whole restaurant it...

The hotel was recently renovated and was very nicely decorated and clean. It's a good spot for business as you are right in the city of Providence. There is a restaurant and 1 block from a shopping mall.

Met several of my college friends here for a reunion weekend. Everyone from the valet to the front desk staff were wonderful, friendly, and efficient. Rooms were especially clean, very updated and sleek. Beds were comfortable and rooms very quiet, bathroom was also quite large freshly stocked with AVEDA products!!.

We were only there for a few hours, so it's hard to give a full rating, but we had a nice stay. We arrived after the Patriots Divisional Playoff game after 1am, and there was no valet around, but the front desk people were helpful, although it took a a minute to figure out where the front desk was (it's...

I've stayed here three times recently, and the Renaissance Providence Downtown is definitely my go-to place in Providence. The physical hotel is impressive, but it's the staff that makes the difference. ( And kudos to management for hiring such a nice group of people and training them so well). The good experience starts at check-in (very professional) and continues throughout....
