As a frequent traveler, hotels are extremely important to me for cleanliness, pleasant staff and safety, This hotel was superb! The church bells someone complained about actually don't go off all the time, and you can request a room away from the bells if it is bothersome. I didn't hear them at all except when I went to the restaurant...

Been here a couple times and they have made improvements to their noise issues, especially the bells. The newer rooms are key for a more silent night. Not much one can do about church bells. Staff is very helpful and newer rooms are nice and roomy and quieter ..take a room on the back side for quiet. Pricey with graduation...

The hotel was fine, clean, friendly, but seemed understaffed. Because I do not trust the housekeeping staff, this hotel has lost the business of myself and my family for the next four years, as my newphew attends Brown U. After an overnight campus visit, I checked out leaving my Kindle Fire X 7 in the room. As soon as I...

Dear Ms. St.John, We are all very concerned and sorry that your Kindle is missing, and understand the inconvenience this causes you.

I stayed at this hotel for business. I arrived well before check in time but the very helpful front desk staff made sure I got a room. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the railway station. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The staff in the restaurant were very polite and efficient. I would stay again.

I stayed here recently on a business trip. The hotel's boutique ambiance was nice, and my room was comfortable and clean. The location is nice, about a ten minute walk to the Amtrak station, 15 minutes to Brown University, and only blocks away from great dinner spots (Gracie's) or breakfast/lunch spots (Ellie's Bakery). There was free wi-fi (yey!), but the...

We spent one night here last weekend. The hotel is conveniently located and well-decorated, the staff friendly. Our room was at the back, so there was no street noise. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom modern and spotless. breakfast next morning was excellent and well-priced, So, no complaints whatsoever!
