I am a Marriott Rewards member, but never had stayed at a Renaissance hotel before. After this stay, I will seek out Renaissance's from now on. I can't say enough good things about this hotel - excellent service, fabulous rooms, great location. Aveda products in the room, luxurious linens, very comfortable beds and pillows. I was here for a business...

The renaissance hotel is a top notch hotel for any business and or family stay. Staff goes above and beyond with their services. Checking in is quick and easy and valet service is fast. If need be, ask for your car to be parked outside if needed for in/out access instead of parking in garage. Valet will warm up and...

Having never stayed at a Renaissance, I was pleasantly surprised. The property is very well located, near the Capitol and Providence Place. The hotel is elegant-looking and well kept. The desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. The valet were nice, but essentially, several young guys who perfectly happy simply hanging-out with one another, instead of being there to serve....

We took an impromptu mini moon just after our wedding because our honeymoon was scheduled for later that year. Made a reservation literally an hour before we checked in at 10 PM.

A wonderful experience... I can strongly recommend this hotel as a wonderful high end hotel. The accommodations are fresh, timeless and well kept. I found the linens to be of good quality and the bed very comfortable. Evening room service included the dry rubbed / grilled chicken wings and the pepperoni pizza. Both excellent with quality of product maintained thru...

So this lovely little jewel was an old Masonic Temple. The original floor plan is on display on the hotel floors. There is a cool restaurant connected called Public for some eats, or you can walk right down the hill to the Providence Mall for an array of food options. It was a great solo trip hotel pick. The staff...

We decided to try this hotel as we frequent Providence monthly The location is right off Rte 95 and adjacent to the city capitol buildings. The staff is courteous and professional. Be aware that the parking is valet and the front entrance is shared with a public auditorium venue so traffic getting in and out of the hotel lot is...
