      Historical Traveler Reviews Providence Marriott Downtown

      Great Stay

      from

      Just came back from a 5 day stay in Providence, I was very concerned about the hotel after reading previous reviews. Our room was great, very comfortable and clean, with great toiletries. We requested a refrigerator and had no problems getting one. Housekeeping did a great job. All employees were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the walk to downtown, certainly alot easier than dealing with driving in the area. It only cost us $5.00 to take a cab to town, cheaper than parking. The only downside to the hotel was the $4.00 bottled water, we just bought our own and put it in the fridge and our alarm clock always went off in the morning, even though we would turn it off the day before. We also ate elsewhere as the prices were too high at the restuarant if you just wanted a snack, though it appeared to be a very nice restuarant. A separate cafe would have been nice. The coffee and tea in the room was a plus. Also enjoyed the paper every morning. I will certainly recommend this hotel to family and friends.

      Great Hotel!

      We thought this was a great hotel. It was nicely decorated. Our hotel room was clean and very comfortable. The hotel staff was friendly, helpful. There was also a very large pool which is indoors and continues to the outside. This hotel is not in walking distance to many places but we were able to take a short cab ride to the restaurant.

      Would stay here again!

      from

      There was plenty of free parking, which is unusual for a downtown location. Room was very clean and comfortable. Check-in was a breeze even though they were dealing with a bankers convention. Everyone was overly friendly and willing to answer any questions.

      The Providence Center (big shopping mall) was about a 12 minute walk away.

      Recommended!

      Great Hotel, location so-so

      from

      I was afraid to stay here based on the reviews listed here but got the hotel on Priceline. The hotel was great, clean nice lobby and there was no evidence of any moldy smell as mentioned on this site. Our room was renovated and very spacious. The location was not great if you want to be able to walk downtown but parking was easy and Providence is a small town.

      Above average, clean and excellent dining

      from

      I travel on business and Marriott is my preferred hotel. I really enjoyed this property. Very easy access from the highway, wonderful restaurant, and clean comfortable rooms. The lobby was inviting and the service above average. I would recommend this property if available for under $200.00 per night.

      Public areas nice, but rooms not up to par...

      from

      Other reviews mentioned the moldy smell of the rooms. My room didn't have that smell until I put on the heat--I could see what looked like mold in the heating/AC unit which, when heated, produces the smell. Due to the health hazards of this, and numerous complaints, it's a mystery why the hotel has refused to address the problem. Also, my room was somewhat small, and the furniture was awkwardly placed. The nightstands were so small that they barely fit the lamp and clock. All in all, not a great hotel experience.

      Not a great location

      from

      The Providence Marriott is a nice enough hotel - friendly staff, clean room, etc. But it is located a twenty minute walk from downtown Providence across two very busy roads and in an area I really didn't feel safe walking at night. The hotel offers no shuttle bus service leaving taxis as the only option at night.

      The bad thing about this is that the hotel describes itself on the Marriott website as: "Conveniently located in the heart of New England's Renaissance City." It is not.

      This hotel does, however, have loads of parking spaces.

      Mold! Mold! Mold!and more mold!

      The most horrible hotel I've ever*almost* stayed at!!!!!The management was the worst I've encountered in a long time!They refused to return my money after checking me into FOUR rooms filled with the taste and smell of MOLD that permeated every single thing in the rooms- especially the air!!!!!I'm getting sick just thinking about it!I demanded my money back and the hotel manager refused!!!!I couldn't believe the way he was talking to me in front of other guests!!!!I didn't know what to do so I phoned the Providence Police to come and help me.I waited outside in the February cold! After the police arrived the manager was all so gushy and apologetic! He couldn't return my money fast enough! He couldn't believe that I phoned the police and probably thought he was going to jail!!!!! The way he treated me, he should have!!!!!!!

      Truly a Key to Rhode Island Treasures

      from

      The Providence Marriott is a great hotel! After a 7 hour layover in Chicago I was very tired and on-edge but after checking in I felt very comfortable and relaxed knowing that I was going to be taken of. I am looking forward to my next visit to Providence and encourage others to lodge at the Marriott in Providence.

      Ovepriced,antiquated,and smelly rooms....

      from

      I recently stayed at the Marriott in Providence and was not very happy with the quality of rooms and the decor of the lobby. I felt the whole place needed a complete update. My particular room was slightly shabby and smelled moldy. Needless to say, I was really disapointed especially given the amount of money our family spent.

As you'd expect it was very americanised with **** loads of snack stalls. We tried some 'pumpkin spiced ale' which neither tasted of pumpkin or spice but was festive! The carved pumpkins certainly rivalled my 'here's Johnny' from last year! Last but not least...on to ...

      ... Johnny Cakes were next on the agenda and the Kenyon's Grist Mill was not far away.
      The ancient mill is in the centre of the quaint last century village of Usquepaugh on the Queens River.

      In 1696 a small grist mill began to ground the farmers corn (grist) into a powder (meal) with the miller keeping a portion of the meal as payment.
      In 1909 the Kenyon family purchased the mill and saw the potential for selling the ground meal ...
