Needed a hotel a few days before a competing and the Hotel Providence was so accommodating and friendly. All staff members went above and beyond to make out stay enjoyable. They even had my car parked out front with my luggage packed when I returned. Would be my first choice for every trip to Providence!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

This was one of nicest hotels I've ever stayed in! The room was large with high ceilings, and the bathroom was a good size with nice fixtures. The tv was lodged in an armoire and there was a mini fridge also which was a nice surprise. The rate was reasonable, although valet parking is the only option so that added...

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights before heading over to Marthas Vineyard for a wedding. When making the booking I requested a cot for my 1 year old daughter so that was grand, After a long day travelling and flying from Dublin to Boston arrived at hotel where no cot was in the room. Before going out for dinner...

The character of the hotel is great. Great and friendly staff from the valet to the check-in to the bartender. Good price for a nice little get-away weekend. Bathroom was huge and beautifully appointed.

the front door staff was courteous and efficient. The room was mediocre, the bed was decent but the other chairs were uncomfortable leaving no place to relax unless in bed. the air temp was hard to manage, and we could hear everything from the suite next door. Breakfast was drab and the staff perplexed as the restaurant that was there...

This place needs a serious makeover. The hotel bar closes early too, which was a bummer. The staff however are super friendly. If you get a great deal for a night or two it's probably worth the stay. Just keep expectations low.

The hotel is perfectly nice. The decor is by no means hip or Modern – think Ethan Allen – but the staff is friendly and everything was spotlessly clean. The main issue I would warn about is the noise. At 8:15 in the morning they start knocking on your door about room service. Think about that: to be out of...

Great location within walking distance to restaurants and the theater. Fine restaurant in house, comfortable rooms and you can bring your pooch. There is a lovely garden on the grounds to relax while watching the people walk by. Our room overlooked the garden. Make sure you get a room with a view.

Terrific hotel. Great downtown location; easy walking distance to many terrific restaurants and attractions. Very clean, comfortable and charming property.

The staff was friendly and the room was very nice. The only issue we had was ordering breakfast and receiving a moldy strawberry with one of our meals. I mentioned it when we were checking out and they apologized for it. The cost of the meal was not charged to my card yet, so I'm assuming they didn't charge me...
