Above average room, great price.....A Taste of Italyfrom SoutheastCT
After checking in on Friday afternoon, we unpacked a few things and then went to our dinner reservation at Mediterraneo in the romantic "little Italy" section of Providence known as Federal Hill. (------) This restaurant was recommended by the concierge and a few other people as being an authentic Italian restaurant. The atmosphere was simply perfect! Valet parking, sidewalk tables, EXCELLENT wait staff. They even cut and served our appetizers as they set it on the table. The food itself was good...not superb as the concierge promised. (prices were reasonable) It was advertised as a 5-star restaurant, but I would give it a 3 or 4. But, then again, I have been to MANY authentic Italian restaurants in Massachusetts and Connecticut, so I have a higher expectation than many people might. After dinner I had made a reservation for a private gondola ride through the rivers and canals on downtown Providence. All along the gondola ride there were shops, restaurants, schools, walkways and plenty of bridges! We brought a bottle of champagne, and our gondolier - Marco - even sang to us in Italian. (-----) It was a very nice evening, and it really got us excited for our trip to Italy!
Back at the hotel, we pre-ordered room service for the following morning and selected the time for delivery. The choices were plentiful and quite honestly the best room service I have ever received. I was surprised. I ordered a wild mushroom and fontina cheese omelet with hashbrowns, and my husband ordered the all-american breakfast which came with two eggs, bacon, hash browns, wheat toast, juice, and coffee. Our breakfasts were way more than we could eat - but very delicious! The nicest touch was the individual single serving-sized "mini" bottles of Heinz ketchup that came on the tray. So much better than hotels with room service that give you packets of ketchup! Overall, it was a great one-night getaway, and if you can look past the "wornness" of the walls and ceiling you will have a wonderful room for a very good price. I would recommend it.
Oh - I almost forgot! The location! It's right off of 95, and within 3-4 minutes to anywhere you would like to go in Providence. It literally took us 4 minutes from door to door to get to the restaurants on Federal Hill. It probably wouldn't be the best hotel if you didn't have a car during your stay. Hope this information was helpful!

Quality Property Near Downtownfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Quality property up to Marriott standards as compared to other Marriott hotels. Nice indoor pool area and fitness room. While the room didn't have a lot of wall hangings, the bed linens were obviously new, as they had down comforters with duvets and good pillows. Clean room with a great desk for business travelers.
The hotel is located on the far north end of downtown. The downside is that it's a long walk (but short drive) to downtown attractions, however the upside is that the hotel has free parking (a big benefit since parking rates in Providence are as expensive as they are in Boston).
I would stay here again if I had a car and would recommend to others.
Top Local Tips for Providence
Nice New England City Downtown Providence is a nice place to visit. There is the River Fire, Providence Place Mall, nice stores; wonderful restaurants, RISD, lots of history.
WaterFire, Providence Place Mall and Brown U. Waterfire is a very cool, surreal, romantic event on certain Saturday evenings in summer. The Mall is nice and huge with several hotels within blocks. Since they've resurrected the river under the city, they have added nice walkways and bridges that will lead you right up to College Hill where Brown University is. It is a beautiful campus with a lovely large green and surrounding neighborhoods with old houses and cobblestones and quaint quiet streets to stroll. Check out Thayer Street for the action. Nice contrast to downtown.
Driving in Providence Get a map that indicates one way direction of roadways and watch for the few street sign, good luck!
