Pros: The staff at the front desk were helpful.
My room was located right next to a ventilation shaft, which kept making loud noise until late night and then start again in the early morning. This was bearable. What I found distasteful was that they charge "incidentals" as you check in, which is $100 per night. I asked about this strange charge on my credit card the day I checked in, and the front desk staff told us they will refund the amount after the guest checks out if no "incidentals" were found. The hotel somehow refunded 36 dollars less than the amount they charged. I broke a glass in the bathroom sink, which was cleaned out myself, and reported to a housekeeping staff; I seriously doubt the glass was worth more than 2-3 dollars. They could charge me for the glass, for the right amount that is, but the "incidentals" feel like this hotel treats their guests as potential damager--which turned out to be subconsciously effective in my case.

First a great room, then one a disappointmentPosted Jun 28, 2015
Pros: Clean. Friendly staff. Well situated for RISD.
Cons: As discussed, suites are a ripoff.
My wife stayed here before and got a great room, very comfortable. This time, they gave us a "suite," which cost more and the room was comfortable and felt cramped. The suite part was wasted space and the bedroom could have used the additional SF wasted on the sitting room. We also got to hear the garbage truck in the early morning hours.

Quiet room downtown ProvidencePosted Jun 20, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff and very clean and quiet.
Cons: It would appear that in the near future this hotel will need an inside face lift. The lobby, hallways, rooms (furniture) & elevator. It is clean thoug
Location: The hotel is nearby to many restaurants, clubs, bars. You can walk or bike around the downtown common and along the river.
We had a smooth check in. On the way to the room you could tell the hotel was old but was clean and no offensive odors. Super clean room, spacious and with ample amenities.Before we went out we had a small meal from room service and it was excellent. Despite being downtown the room was very quiet. Had a great nigh sleep on an extremely comfortable mattress. If you plan on having room service breakfast, I recommend that you fill out the card they leave in your room to avoid waiting over an hour ( actually hour and a half ) like we had to. Overall I would recommend the Hotel Providence.

Nice small boutique hotel on a boutique streetPosted May 25, 2015
Pros: Its in downtown/city center
Cons: Staff's knowledge on expedia elite status and extra amenities
Location: Theres a cute boutique (but overpriced) street right by the hotel
The Hotel Providence is nicely decorated, and rooms are fully equipped and perfectly clean. The location is around 5-10 minutes walk away from the Kennedy Bus Plaza, which is like their main bus station. We had a great stay.

Real gem in the center of old ProvidencePosted May 21, 2015
Hotel Providence is a quiet and cozy hotel just steps away from the great cafes and restaurants of old Providence. There's a fine fitness center, fabulous restaurant, and extremely friendly and attentive staff. Highly recommend.

Very nice hotel for the price in a good location. Nice sized rooms and a charming old building. The rooms are modern while the property has retained it's old charm.
