We traveled from CA and stayed here in May as my son was graduating from law school. The building is very impressive. The lobby was very cozy. We had two lovely awesome rooms. I believe they were 212 and 312. Request THOSE rooms when you check in. They are HUGE. Lovely. Spacious. The bed was very comfy, the bathroom was...

We were very impressed with our recent visit to the Hotel Providence in early July 2013. The lobby was nice, our room (king) was overlooking the courtyard and the 5th floor. We thought it was very bright and spacious, and clean. The ceilings were extremely high. The bathroom was white marble & extremely nice. The staff couldn't have been more...

Stayed here in mid-April 2013. Beautiful architecture - curved staircase, ornamental railing. Lovely. First room was dark and narrow overlooking roof with loud A/C unit. Asked to switch with no problem to a very large and bright room in the front of the original, main building. The front desk has a binder of photos of available rooms (very cool), and...

We were told that this was a very nice boutique hotel, I was not impressed. The rooms are small, the bathroom was tiny, the temperature was hard to regulate, and it was like being in a mouse maze getting to the room. The neighborhood is sketchy, turn right as you exit the door and there are some trendy shops. Turn...

Dear Valued Guest, We regret that you were not impressed with our hotel. We work hard to maintain our property and provide excellent service every single day. The layout is a bit different, due to the fact that the integrity of the two historic buildings that house the hotel were considered during the initial 2005 refurbishment. There is nothing cookie-cutter...

The hotel is nicely restored and it is quite luxurious. The room was clean, comfortable and quite lovely. I felt a little uncomfortable walking around the area and don't believe I would venture outside in the dark. Even though it was quiet, there were people hanging out on the street. And if you drive and park there, there is a...

I stayed at Hotel Providence for one night, June 30, 2013. The beds were comfortable, the room clean, and nice amenities. I really liked the spaciousness of the bathroom. The only problems were the huge stains on the bed skirt and on the curtain in the bathroom.

We spent two weekend nights at the Hotel Providence at the end of June. We had a room on the second floor annex (a bit difficult to get to from the main elevator in the lobby) that was small and had a view of a brick wall, but was otherwise comfortable. The room was clean and we had a relatively...
