Set in the heart of New England, the Renaissance Providence Hotel is a stately building in Rhode Island's capital. Built in 1929, this historic neo-Classical hotel was originally a Masonic Temple; its restoration was one of the largest projects in the state's history. The building commemorates the heritage of the area while also involving the vibrant artistic community that surrounds it today.

The Temple Downtown Restaurant and Lounge serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner; room service is available (limited hours). In December 2015, this lobby, public spaces, and non-suite guestrooms were recently renovated.

A business center is on site; services available at the hotel include computer and cell phone rental, event catering, and dry cleaning. Meeting space and audiovisual equipment are available for large and small groups. Fitness equipment is available.
