Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Providence
Elegant small hotel!
We stayed at The Hotel Providence for only one night after receiving a great
rate of $150 thru priceline. It was a small elegant hotel - rooms were not huge but extremely nice furnishings, linens and bath. We were there for Waterfire and it was just a short walk, however The Westin and The Marriott Courtyard are probably better located for that event. The hotel staff was very accomodating but we did not receive the service that others reported in their reviews - no follow up calls, turn down service or chocolates. Beware - valet parking is $24.00 a day - that was a surprise! For the price, I do think it was an excellent value and a good option for downtown Providence! Waterfire was an impressive event as well!
Very pleased with the Hotel Providence
We stayed one evening at the Hotel Providence and were quite impressed. The staff was very helpful and friendly, immediately letting us know what events were occurring that evening and where we might find them, as well as taking our bags up to the room without prompting. They also called within the hour to make sure the room was to our liking.
Providence is so small that the hotel is within walking distance of everything, even Federal Hill. So, the location was not an issue. From a security perspecitve, I don't think it is any different than any other city. Be smart about things and you won't have to worry.
The rooms was fantastic with a large, comfy bed and beautiful 3/4 bathroom. We had no complaints, only praises. At $189 plus tax, we felt the room was a nice value and very competitive with other hotels.
I was very excited to try the Hotel Providence when I had made my reservation but after my stay I don't know if I could ever go back. When I checked in the front desk was not that warm and during my stay when I would walk down the hallway and see members of the staff they did not even acknowledge me which I found very rude. The location is downtown but I am not too sure about that area of downtown it had me worried at some points. I must say the restaruant in the hotel is excellent but when the church bell went off every hour it was hard to enjoy my meal! Needless to say I was not pleased with my experience at the Hotel Providence.
Lovely and comfortable
We arrived late and the neighborhood seemed a little shady but as it turned out it was because of the number of school buildings around and students wandering. The hotel staff was great, very attentive. The room was wonderful and the bed amazing.
The only downside was the price of the food. We had breakfast for 4 in the dining room and the cost was $84. It was a buffet (and they still add an 18% gratuity)and really not worth the price although the setting is great.
Having said all this we are going back next month for a wedding and we're making it the bride's family headquarters and taking a block of rooms. It's relaxing and will look great in pictures. We're looking forward to it.
What a beautiful hotel. The location wasn't great but the rooms and service made up for it. The beds and linens were amazing and the bathroom marble floors and large space was great. Would stay again. The church bells from across the street rang from 9am - 9pm beginning with Amazing Grace. What a way to start the morning....The restaurant although expensive was worth it....
We just spent Saturday night at the Hotel Providence and found everything to be the best...the reception, the service, the room, the food, the location...did I leave anything out? We loved our stay!
Nice hotel / Staff could be more attentive
Nice hotel/Location is a little un easy at night time! Staff is very content with each other. Not paying full attention to the guest
Worth a stay
Providence has a shortage of hotels, and this fills the void. The surrounding neighborhood is making a bit of a comeback, but it is definitely rough around the edges. The hotel is efficient, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the city, and the decor is pleasant. One caveat: we stopped by for a drink before dinner at the restaurant L'Impero and were not happy to learn that two glasses of Moet chanpagne cost $50.
An elegant, small European Hotel
Wonderful hotel in a not so nice section of the city. This is the place to stay if you want to be treated royally. The rooms were lovely, the bedding was to die for as was the bed, the staff was delightful, the antiques throughout were magnificent, the free breakfast was a treat, etc. I have nothing but praise for this lovely hotel, which didn't seem like a hotel due to its size. I could have stayed there longer, I felt so much at home. The general area where it is located isn't the greatest but i suspect that the revitalization will eventually include this area. Until then, don't miss the chance to stay here - it will be a real treat and a delightful change from the big chains.
Everybody knows your name at the Hotel Providence
Just spent a great weekend in Providence at the Hotel Providence. This hotel was absolutely charming. Please keep in mind that the charm of this hotel is in the amazing level of service. Every attention to detail was provided. The staff always addressed us by name. Frankly, I don't know how they did this with 80 rooms. Each night when we came back to the room, the bed was turned down, fruit or chocolates were on the bedstand and soothing music was playing on the CD player. The bed was so comfortable that we slept like babies. The Hotel Providence has limited facilities. The hotel has just one very gourmet restaurant with a nice bar area. We did not get to go to the restaurant for dinner, but heard it was well worth it. We planned our weekend to go to Waterfire on Saturday night and were glad we did.

I've always had a romantic idea of New England - fisherman, lobstah, oysters and clams. I haven't had much opportunity to explore it before now, and work in Rhode Island afforded the perfect opportunity to wet my beak.

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 ...
