                        9.0

                        It was a decent city hotel, nothing special. The service people were, however, friendlier and more caring than average.

                        Parking fees of $20 daily applied for partial days, so from 6 P.M. Friday to 12 noon Monday, less than three days, resulted in a fee of $79 instead of $60. Very high price; the dollar discount notwithstanding.

                      • Family with children
                        8.8

                        Room was beautiful. Staff was very competent and extremely helpful. Very nice feel. There were a lot of restaurants within walking distance. After a long drive, I didn't feel like driving to a restaurant for dinner.

                        I didn't love the $25 valet charge. Our room was on the 5th floor and the roof fan made a tremendous noise all night. We were offered ear plugs... Why not fix the noise problem? We were too tired to ask to be moved to another floor. It was really very loud!!

                        Quality rooms with pleasant and helpful staff.

                        Pet fee was too high.....the most I ever had to pay......a reason for not returning there

                        The hotel is a charming looking boutique type establishment, well appointed and well located.

                        The service was skeletal-- we had problems with the heat and there was no engineer on duty from very early in the evening. As the night progressed the heating system in our room completely pooped out, and it was so late in the night we just slept in our coats.The way the heater appeared, I got the sense that the remodeling of this charming old building was superficial-- cosmetic more than real. The staff were nice, but made no attempt to reduce our bill, which I resented. They did say this was hard to do because we booked via a third party. While they offered us a free breakfast, only one person was working the tables and the service was so slow that we just left.

                        Nice reception from the staff and very accommodating when we weren't happy with our original room, they quickly relocated us. We were there for one relaxing evening- lovely room, comfortable bed, gracious environment, centralized location.

                        The bells from the nearby church rang repeatedly throughout the day and evening- nice at first but then too much!

                        Professional and helpful and friendly staff. Excellent hotel restaurant. Great location. Free Wi Fi a plus.

                        Poor maintenance of light fixtures, I.E. missing light bulbs, malfunctioning lamps. Limited cable tv options.

                        The old fashioned furniture and the large room with a separate sitting room. Lots of space. Big bathroom too. Free wifi too which many of the others don't offer. Also great food from room service.

                        The size, location, bar/restaurant, and great patio with live entertainment. The decor was nice and the staff was friendly.

                        We only stayed one night as we were passing through but it was wonderful. We had a nice quiet room on the seventh floor and the room was very comfortable. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was excellent. For someone who is hard to please, this hotel exceeded my expectations.

                        I like the location to other venues for eating, shopping, etc. It was well run, clean and friendly. I would recommend the hotel and would not hesitate to stay again.

                        There is nothing that I didn't like at the Hotel Providence. A gem of a hotel in a great location. Should I have the occasion to return to Providence I would certainly consider staying at the Hotel Providence.

                        The location was in walking distance of federal hill for dining and in the center of downtown.
