I had stayed here when the hotel was the Providence Biltmore. Then, the rooms were spacious, but dowdy. The newly remodeled rooms are amazing! Everything from the wallpaper to the artwork is fun & whimsical. And they kept the two King size (very comfy) beds in the suites. It feels more like a home than a hotel room. My only complaints are that the restaurant in the hotel is closed down & that the coffee shop, Poindexters, is very overpriced. But there are so many good restaurants in the area, I can overlook this. I highly recommend Graduate Providence & I look forward to staying here again!

A weekend in Providence
Boutique hotel located very conveniently in downtown Providence. Walking distance from Amtrak, many restaurants and bars and the RISD. Great interior design. Breakfast is available at the Pointdexter coffee shop in-house. Room was spacious and clean, a bit on the noisy side.

Fix that Damn Elevator AND Train Obnoxious Staff
I love this hotel. I have stayed in this hotel at least 12 times in the last ten years. I will probably never stay here again because of customer service issues I had with the front desk.I am horrified when mega-capitalists buy this gem, renovate every floor with new EVERYTHING, then dont fix elevator, just like the last mega-capitalist to own this gem, and then sell it to the next group of investors who will fail at the purpose of buying this property. The elevator in this building must be fixed. Otherwise, and Im not sorry to say this: This hotel chain being the nth group to own this hotel in the last 20 years, having this incredible piece of American engineering and deeming the repair project IMPOSSIBLE is abhorrent. Youre cheap and dont hire engineers intelligent enough to repair it. It is factually one of the dumbest things happening in Providence.The elevator has always been broken though, so surprise surprise. Id stay at this hotel 100 more times til they fix the elevator, BUT I wont return because of the most obnoxious-voiced SSIIIIIIRRRRR person at the front desk who was a total turd on the phone to me when I called about an expensive part of my computer gear I left plugged into the wall in the room I checked out of and then telling his coworkers and the Graduate customer service I was harassing him because I called the hotel a few times to get ahold of someone who wasnt a total turd. #bye #fixthatdamnelevator

Lobby was very nice, room was very average but clean. No amenities. They claim they are keeping it in the old style of the historic hotel. Did good job with lobby, the room and bathrooms not so much.

Exceeded expectations
Graduate.The Graduate Providence was everything we wanted. It’s an older hotel from a time where no expense was spared during construction. After many ownership changes and renovations, it is in great shape but maintains the nostalgia. We stayed in one of the king suites. Great room! Sitting area and separate bedroom. Walking closet and decent sized bathroom. We stayed during the heat wave in July 2019. There were previous comments of poorly on non-functioning a/c so I was concerned it would not hold-up in the heat. I even asked at check-in and I was told they had had issues but they’ve been corrected. They were. The room was always cool and comfortable.Speaking of comfortable, the bed was so comfortable and the pillows were amazing. I need to ask were they got them because my wife is still raving about them. From check-in we were met with courtesy and professionalism. Our valet was Olufisayo. Very professional young man acted not only as our valet but essentially our concierge as he provided us with restaurant advice and even delivered menus of local pizza joints to our room. Overall a great experience and a great hotel stay.
Stayed 3 nights in Jul 2019
