      Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Providence Downtown

      Outstanding--Simply, Outstanding

      from

      This courtyard is a typical courtyard EXCEPT for the staff and location. The staff is outstanding. I cannot give enough accolades for their service. Wonderful!

      The location is great if you're doing business downtown. Its across the street from the huge Providence Place mall.

      Ask for a room on the even numbered side of the hotel--it is quieter.

      Fantastic Hotel right downtown!

      from

      The courtyard was just fabulous. They had a room available immediatly even though we arrived 4 hours before check in. The view was a prime center view of the Capital Building.....just beautiful. The room was large and extremly well kept.

      The hotel staff were wonderful as well, very friendly and even offered to map out locations of interest for us. They even had coupons for various restaraunts throughout the city for you if you mentioned where you were having dinner!

      Can't say enough about this place! the rate was fantastic, the location is near it all, right in the heart of downtown and the rooms and staff are great! I would definitly stay here again!

      Great place downtown

      from

      I found this a great place to stay downtown, with convenient ($18/night, though) parking off street, pleasant staff, and a nice room. I stayed here for two nights, and the only problem I had was a missing bath mat, which showed-up the second night after I used a towel for the first night. Based on my own research, I think this place beats the Biltmore and Westin for the money, and while I agree that Providence is generally a limited (if not bad) hotel town, the Courtyard Marriott is a pleasant surprise.

      Excellent for a family stay

      from

      My husband and I spent a week at the Courtyard with our almost 2-year old daughter in June. It was the most comfortable stay we've had at any hotel! And a great value. We had a spacious two-room suite, with a little kitchenette (microwave, fridge, sink) in the living room. The rooms are not luxurious, but they are still attractive, well-appointed, and very clean. Our suite overlooked Providence downtown (and our windows even opened a few inches) but the night-time noise was not bad at all.

      The staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the always-available free coffee in the lobby as well as the daily treats. The pool was a little colder than I like, but to compensate, it afforded a marvellous view of the Rhode Island State House. You cannot beat the location either. Being downtown is fabulous: Waterfire, Providence Place mall, and other restaurants at our doorstep, and College Hill within walking distance. Free high-speed internet is another perk. The worst part about the stay was making the reservation: the Courtyard's computer reservation system (on-line and by phone) kept hanging up on us, and it took several attempts to make the reservation.

      HATED IT

      from

      THIS HOTEL WAS THE WORST HOTEL I EVER HAVE SEEN. When i called to make sure i had all the right dates for my stay in July, i had a little surprise. They told me i never made a reservation, when i did. I had a special rate, because i was staying with Headliners ( a dance organization) they told me they had rooms but they would not give me the rate i needed, instead of getting a room for 139 a day, they told me i had to get the room for more than 300$ which i could not do, they would not help me, Everyone at the marriot that i was lying, this saw the WORST hotel i've ever seen, I recomend the Holiday Inn, the were very good and even gave me a special deal because i told them this story, Iwill NEVER try to stay in a Marriot Courtyard again

      A true gem in the Marriott Family

      from

      I was attending a convention in Providence on May 20 and stayed here because of its proximity to the Rhode Island Convention Center. Due to several events being held on the same day I was only able to secure one nights lodging, but the price of $114 for the night was excellent, for a king size bed, sofa, and high speed internet. There were no smells in the room and it was extremely quiet and comfortable. I only have two complaints: I would have liked free parking, and I was sorry that Waterfire wasn't happening while I was there. I will definitely stay again and recommend this hotel to everyone.

      Rooms were small,parking a bit pricy,and location noisy!

      from

      My wife and I stayed at this Hotel and were a little disappointed there was no fridge in the room like the other person stated. The parking prices are steep and the street traffic was noisy. The Hotel seemed newer but our room had some smell problems which was probably from someone smoking in there previously. It seems like they dont enforce that rule at their hotel. Location was okay but Providence is so small you can get around very easy anyway.

      A solid choice in a bad hotel town...

      from

      This hotel is one of the more reliable mid-priced choices in a city filled with not-so-good hotel choices. The downtown location is excellent, across the street from Providence Place Mall and in the same complex as several good restaurants. The service is good, and the rooms are decent-sized (although not luxurious and very bland in that typical Courtyard way), and spotlessly clean. My king-bedded room had a love seat that could turn into another bed. I requseted a mini-fridge for my room and they brought one up free of charge. They have an indoor pool and jacuzzi, and a coin-operated guest laundry too. Also, they have free high-speed internet access in every room. Compared to the other choices in town (the other Marriott with many tiny, poorly laid out rooms, the Holiday Inn which isn't bad, but has tiny bathrooms, is a little rough around the edges, and can get a little rowdy on weekends, and the Radisson which is in a really inconvenient area right next to a noisy highway), the Courtyard really shines by comparison.

      A truly hospitality excellence

      from

      this hotel truly represents excellent service, the front desk was not only friendly but helpful taking careful consideration of our stay, excellent location and absolut great service

      Courtyard was excellent!

      from

      Recently spent 5 days at the Courtyard by Marriott in Providence. This is a wonderful hotel. Everything was very clean. The staff was very friendly. We had a nice size room with a whirlpool bath. The hotel is in a perfect downtown location just across the street from the Providence Place mall. The hotel is actually part of the Union Station complex which has numerous restaurants. The Union Station Brew House was excellent. Overall we were pleasantly surprised by our entire experience at this hotel. Cost approximately $125 less per night than the Westin Hotel across the street.

      ... them, entire fences surrounding a home made from stacks of flat rock, and weathered buildings beaten by decades of salt air all add to the ambiance. Some of the buildings in the area are 400 years old or more, and it staggers the mind to think of all the lives and changes that they have seen in that time.

      We are one week away! Everything is in order, and we are getting very excited! We've been following the two safari lodges we are going to stay at on social media, and they are posting some great pictures! I am, however, not very excited that when Jeff was taking to someone who just came back from that area on New Years mentioned how many black mambas there were. REALLY?? I knew there were snakes, bit that is not what I wanted to hear!! Until next ...

Near the hotel was a bowling alley. I did not bowl, i just watched the others and drank and talked with some of the others that did not bowl either. After a few hours a small group of us went to a tavern across the road and had a quick drink before heading off to ...
