Clean and Convenient

Very friendly staff, clean rooms and close to The Dunkin Donuts Center. Rare to find rooms with 2 queen beds, so that is a bonus. Blocks from the Dunk and convention center. Walk to everything. Nice hotel

Lovely stay

Very nicely renovated older building in Downtown Providence. Big nice bathroom. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Only complaint is that it is a bit noisy. You can hear the plumbing through the walls and could hear talking in the hallways.

Charming, beautiful hotel

This hotel is beautiful and charming. It is in a prime location of downtown Providence. The staff was warm and welcoming. You could feel the history in this place. It felt apparent that you were in a quaint New England town. There are great restaurants and very 'East Coast' bar options close by. Something to note is that the hallway noise was apparent, despite the fact that we were on the end. The sound just seemed to carry. Parking is pricey. We ended up parking in a garage across the street, that was a little cheaper, considering our late entry. All things considered, we would recommend this place and probably stay again.
