This place is beautiful and in the heart of downtown Providence. The hotel is immaculate and the was spacious, comfortable, very well designed and clean. One of the nicest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in.

We were only there for a few hours, so it's hard to give a full rating, but we had a nice stay. We arrived after the Patriots Divisional Playoff game after 1am, and there was no valet around, but the front desk people were helpful, although it took a a minute to figure out where the front desk was (it's...

The Renaissance Providence Downtown is a beautiful and well maintained hotel. I've stayed there twice in recent months and will return in the near future. The staff from the parking valets to the front desk to the cleaning staff are all very pleasant and attentive. The hotel lounge on the seventh floor is large a spacious. The gym is also...

Very nice hotel but we had 2 days of meetings and couldn't get a wifi signal. Make sure you ask what meeting room you are in and specific if you can get wifi. Comfortable beds and very quiet. Good for personal travle

I've stayed here three times recently, and the Renaissance Providence Downtown is definitely my go-to place in Providence. The physical hotel is impressive, but it's the staff that makes the difference. ( And kudos to management for hiring such a nice group of people and training them so well). The good experience starts at check-in (very professional) and continues throughout....

We arrived at approximately 9:30 pm on a Saturday evening (at about the same time a performance was ending at the venue next door) and were able to check-in rapidly and efficiently in order to make a dinner reservation with friends. In addition to being convenient and efficient, our room was spotless.

Nice stay at the Renaissance in downtown Providence. Close to train station. Shopping and great restaurants. Very nice service from doormen to front desk. Nice restaurant downstairs. Great for quick bites and drinks. Will stay here again.

This has become my favorite place to stay, and the only place when I'm in Providence. Aside from it's location right next to the train station and Providence Center Mall, it's a beautiful, well-kept hotel. The reason it keeps getting better is because of the staff. I've ALWAYS been treated like I'm the only person in the hotel, and this...

Beautiful hotel, located right across from the Capitol building with some great views. Walking distance to a huge mall if you need anything. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious and a large bathroom. The wifi was not great, ended up switching to data most of my 4 day stay. I guess this can vary depending on what you need wifi...

My husband and I were guests at the Providence Renaissance hotel this weekend. We had a wonderful stay! Everything from chick-in to check-out was easy and comfortable. They have great valet parking for a reasonable price. The registration desk staff is wonderful - especially our agent, Anthony. He went out of his way to make our stay memorable. Housekeeping had...
