Pretty good value for money A review of Wyndham Garden Providence
Despite booking a non-smoking room via Expedia we were allocated a smoking one. The front desk eventually got us moved to another room, despite being full. We needed a roll down bed to fit us all in but overall they handled the problem reasonably well. As to the hotel itself, it is slap bang beside the interstate. Great for access (although the underpass you drive through resembles Beiruit!) but terrible if your room faces onto it. We got lucky and had a view over the harbor. We only ate once in the hotel, the buffet breakfast was excellent but the service - even that early in the morning - was better. Kind of reminded us about the whole concept of friendly, efficient service. Just a pity we didn't experience that standard everywhere we went. Travelling into and out of Providence town centre was easy by car or not too expensive by taxi. Walking took a little longer but it was worth seeing some of the back roads and Brown University.
