It was wonderful coming back to Berkley...the sponsor contact here, Roger, is a good friend to our circus and after taking such good care of us last year when we advanced here, he didn't disappoint this year. Roger met each vehicle last night when we pulled in with a print out of various walkable shops and restaurants in the area and welcomed us each back. He arranged for the police to drive through the lot a couple of times ...

It was about helping slaves who had escaped their masters to gain their freedom. You see, New Bedford was a Quaker town. The Quakers believed in the equality of all mankind, and they believed that enslaving another human being was unconscionable. So, there were numerous "safe" houses, ...

Many of the other wealthy home owners ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Dolce Villa Providence
Nice hotel with awful management
My parents live in Connecticut and come to visit me quite often. I go to college around Providence. We were out to dinner on Federal Hill and saw the Hotel so we figured we would give it a tour. The hotel is extremely nice and the two bedroom rooms we were quoted a price of $199 per night execpt for college graduation. My mom called back the next day to book a room for a weekend in May. The price they quoted was $389 due to college graduation. She then picked a date in June, she was then quoted $339. She called back and talked to a manager who quoted first $350 then $240. My mom was going to book it a $260 for the two bedroom, when she said that there would be more than two people staying in the two bedroom the manager jacked the price up to $310. The staff and manager also were not very friendly and acted as though my parents were doing them a favor by staying there. The hotel has a lot of potential but poor management and a lack of consistancy for their pricing.
Absolutely love this hotel!
This is a little boutique-style hotel in the middle of the italian district called federal hill in Providence. The hotel itself reminds me of the boutiques in South Beach, or the hillview hotels in Italy. The rooms are similar to the W Hotels variety. They have every amenity you can think of. The staff there is wonderful, they help you out in any way possible. They will call taxis for you, valet your car, get you reservations at restaurants. The best thing one staff member did (and said that they all do) is walked us up to our hotel room and explained all the features of it to us. That was very helpful and we would absolutely stay there again.
This place is great. It's location is perfect because in the middle of a beautiful cobblestone plaza with a fountain and restaurants and shops all around. Which is a nice setting to walk out into and start your day. The hotel itself is super modern and it has memory foam beds, and it's so much more comfortable than a big chain hotel for my taste. And, they will order groceries for you to cook in the kitchen...yeah it had a full size stove and microwave and it was way more than a kitchenette. I had a great time and I will be back.
Dolce Villa is great all around. service, location,comfort, etc. For those who haven't seen this hotel yet take a look at these great photos. I liked it so much it actually felt like a home away from home.
I loved my stay at Dolce Villa. My husband and I decided to plan a romantic getaway and tried the "all suite boutique style hotel" for the weekend. It was great, the suite was amazing! Everything is very classy, white on white, fireplace and a wonderful whirpool tub. The hotel is right smack in the middle of Historic Federal Hill with many great restaurants and downtown at walking distance. Its like being in little Italy. We had dringks at Gepettos, dinner at Mediterraneo dessert at Cafe Dolce Vita and then danced all night to Latin rhythms at the Club at Mediterraneo. We had a blast, I highly recommend this experience to everyone.
This is how hotels should be!
the rates are great, its located in a beautiful italian style piazza and you can walk a just few steps to find entertainment.
It feels like you are in Italy!
This is truly an unique place.
My wife and I needed some time off together and away from our kids, but we didn't have enough time to go too far, therefore we decided to stay in town. We are both very fussy and, above all, we needed a place that didn't make us feel we were in town.
We heard about a small hotel that just opened in the heart of Federal Hill, which is the destination for fine dining restaurants in Providence. Perfect. We decided to take a look, and they were kind enough to take us for a tour even before we booked a room. What a place. We immediately felt we were in Italy. The decor is completely candid white: floors, walls, furniture, appliances, everything. Every room has a full kitchen. Yes, a FULL KITCHEN. Big refrigerator, stove, oven, etc.. Never seen that before. Every bathroom has a jacuzzi, and the double bedrooms even have a fireplace.
Our room had a TV in the living room and one in the bedroom with both VCR and DVD player. The mattress is memory-foam. When I woke up in the morning I didn't have my usual back ache.
The service was unusually personalized, something we never experienced in the big hotels. More like in Italy.
We fell in love with the place. They had an introductory price of $125.00. I don't know how long it's going to last, but we can't wait until we go back. Kids permitting, of course.
Best kept secret in Littly Italy
The best-kept secret right now in the world of travel is a little hotel in Providence, Rhode Island, called Dolce Villa. But it won't be long before everyone will be hearing about this little gem, right in the heart of Federal Hill, which is the Little Italy section of the city. Our daughter goes to college in Providence, and we love to visit her every chance we get. We always go to Federal Hill for shopping in the Italian markets, which is how we found out about Dolce Villa. It's like staying in Italy and nothing like your normal hotel experience. The rooms are ultramodern with every amenity you could ever wish for, even flat-screen TVs with DVD, VCR and CD players. Our room had a fully equipped kitchen, which is great if you like to have breakfast in bed, or if you want to do any entertaining in your room. But the real bonus is that this beautiful hotel is within walking distance of so many great Italian restaurants. We hope to make Dolce Villa our regular hotel every time we travel to Providence to see our daughter.
Gorgeous New Hotel Boutique
We just spent a fabulous weekend in Providence, Rhode Island, where we stayed at a brand new boutique hotel called Dolce Villa. It was like no hotel I have ever stayed at - there are only 14 rooms, but they are all suites. The hotel is simply stunning, from the white marble floors to the white leather furniture in every room. I can't wait to go back this summer when all the flowers will be in bloom and WaterFire will be taking place in the city - an event not to be missed.
Best experience ever
I have been all over the United States, Mexico and Europe, and stayed at some really nice resorts, but nothing can compare to my recent getaway at Dolce Villa, a small hotel in Providence, RI, with nothing but gorgeous suites that I can't stop talking about it. From the outside, the hotel looks like something you'd see by the sea in Italy, very Old World with charming architecture. But the minute I stepped into the lobby, I knew I was in for an unusual experience. The whole interior of this hotel is white! White marble floors, white leather sofas and chairs, an all-white bed with a memory-foam mattress. I had a beautiful suite with a full kitchen, and I was told that the two-bedroom suites have remote-controlled fireplaces. I'm already planning a return trip with friends.
