The room and hotel were lovely. Unfortunately the road noise ruined the calm atmosphere you expect from a B&B. Can walk to mall and restaurants but have to cross freeway.

We stayed at the Omni, later in the week, and preferred the quiet room and attachment to the big Mall.

Stayed: September 2017, travelled as a couple

Thank you for posting a review. We are sorry to hear that you felt the highway noise ruined the inn's atmosphere. The nearby attractions and restaurants are easily accessible via the Smith Street overpass including the Providence Place Mall. We are located in a city next to a highway as most of the hotels in providence are, including the Omni. We hope that you will stay with us again, perhaps in a room that does not face the highway.

Location is not great, you have to walk a bit from the town centre. The area is lovely though, surrounded by nice houses and very quiet. It is a b&b so it is basically a house. Rooms are spacious but need more housekeeping and a little bit of a scrub in the corners. Staff is friendly

Thank you for posting a review. We are in a very walkable area to nearby attractions, only one block away from 2 other major hotels in Providence. Our inn is located in a historic 4 level Italianate Mansion built in 1858. Our housekeepers and staff work very hard to keep the inn clean. Please contact us directly to elaborate. We hope that you will return at a later date!

We stayed at the Christopher Dodge House B&B for two nights before we boarded a cruise. Our room on the ground floor was spacious, well appointed and super clean. The breakfasts were amazing with fresh fruit, cereals, and a hot dish. Coffee and tea are available all day, and the staff are super friendly.
The location is very nice as it's in a quiet area, yet close enough for walking to the State house, to downtown shops, to the area around Brown College, etc. This is THE place to stay in Providence!

Was going to opt for a larger hotel in Providence, but thought twice and discovered the Christopher Dodge House. It's a beautiful historic building only 5 minutes walk from the RI state capitol. My room was spacious and bright, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom well appointed. The staff were all very gracious, especially the lovely woman orchestrating breakfast in the cozy dining room. Cold and hot options--all delicious and a great start to the day.
Plenty of info about the city was on hand--my only suggestion would be that the recommended restaurants should come with a hint about their cost. I was pointed to a handsome place that was as pricey as any NYC restaurant (& wasn't quite looking for that!).
Enjoyed my stay and would come again.

Room Tip: Hotel has no elevator, so there are plenty of stairs to climb if you're on the upper floors

I think this is a great value. Terrific old house, friendly staff, good breakfast and cheap price. I suppose there are more sumptuous places with special breakfasts with homemade jams, but the homemade breakfast was terrific.

Room Tip: close to highway, but we didn't hear the noise (air conditioner and thick windows._
