The banks of the Pawtuxet River in Warwick, Rhode Island, are undergoing an urban revival in miniature, making this the perfect backdrop for a sophisticated, loft-style hotel. With a hip, city feel to it, the property is full of whimsical details, including a cheeky pool table in the bar and a striking lobby bedecked with contemporary art. The 163 guestrooms are sleek and feature exposed brick, high ceilings, rain showers, artworks by local designers and tech gizmos galore. At the end of a day of shopping in Warwick or exploring in Providence, the Loft restaurant and its terrace are the ideal spot for enjoying sundowners and fresh seafood, such as wasabi-seared ahi tuna with white rice, house-made kimchi, a sesame soy glaze and crispy fried wontons.
In the Area
Nearby Providence is a sophisticated cultural center with a rich past and a surfeit of gorgeous buildings. Visitors can take in cutting-edge art at the Rhode Island School of Design’s museum or look back at the state’s 18th-century history at the John Brown House Museum. The self-guided East Side walking tour gives a good overview of the key sights, from the storied Providence Art Club to Brown University’s campus. And the city’s well-established foodie scene is not to be missed, with its emphasis on farm-to-table dining, fresh fish and seasonal flavors. Try Beau Vestal’s take on all of the above at New Rivers, or go for fine dining at Gracie’s, which consistently rates among Providence’s best restaurants.
How to Get There
Really enjoyed the different style of this hotel, former warehouse renovated. LOVED the concrete walls amd ceiling, hate adjacent and above room noise as light sleeper. Bed was comfy and liked shower and room layout. Hip areas and design in hotel throughout plus a great bar and restaurant. Bar and restaurant do not match the very reasonable price of rooms here, would expect that quality and menu at a more upscale priced hotel. Had nothing both positive experiences with bar, restaurant, and front desk staff and check in and check-out in Alex and Nicole. Wish the season allowed us to enjoy the outdoor dining location overlooking the river. Had a great mojito and wings late night and pancakes at breakfast were huge stack of 3 along with a yogurt parfait. Nothing but great things to say, except there are only 5 of them throughout the country
Worked with Olivia during our recent 2 day meeting at the Nylo. She was attentive, professional, welcoming, sincere and took care of our every need. We also worked with Randi during the planning process it and was smooth and easy! Thanks for taking such great care of us!
served its purpose stopover from airport then moving on,shopping mall across the road very good,hotel very clean and modern,shuttle bus to take you to airport or train station,staff were friendly to us and helpful no problems.
I think the stylings of this hotel are really about traveler preferences. I liked the loft rooms, liked the layout and the decor. Great views from my room of the river. This is not a 5 star "resort". For what it is this is a great place to stay. It's quiet, great A/C, located close to the airport and is not badly located for checking out Rhode Island. Parking is definitely across the street. It may feel a bit sketchy, but it was genuinely fine. They have a bar, restaurant and fitness facilities. I thought it was a definite find for the price point and all of it's attributes. I note that many people commented on service levels, but I found the people at check-in to be particularly cheerful, even during my late check-in at 11:30pm. No room service, but food to go.
I booked and paid for a "Deluxe" King loft. I was deceived by the picture sent with my confirmation and NOT GIVEN the same room, The worst part of the experience was the treatment by the "Director of Rooms" MacKenzie Sherlock. She could not have been more condescending or dismissive. Never in all my years of travel have I been treated so poorly. I would NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone. DO NOT go there and expect anything but POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE
