Nice hotel located in the heart of the city

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 18, 2009

The Renaissance Providence Hotel is part of the Marriott family of hotels. The hotel was built inside of what was originally a Masonic Temple, that was abandoned before being completed due to the depression. After standing empty for almost 80 years, Marriott bought the building and left most of the design elements in place during the restoration. If you look at the building from the outside, you'd think it was a bank or courthouse. On the inside, it is modern and well appointed.

The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable - two things that I enjoy about a room. The bathroom was also spacious as were the closets. There was a coffee maker in the room for those who need their morning coffee.

The hotel has a restaurant / lounge called "Temple" which is quite popular. We only had breakfast there, but the food and service were good.

In summary, it was a nice place to stay. I would recommend it to others.

Unique Quality: We chose this hotel because of the great location. Easy to get to everything we wanted to see and places to eat.

Directions: Located on the west side of Rhode Island State House

A great Hotel with cool rooms and bar

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 15, 2007

This was one of the best hotels that we've stayed at in a while. The renaissance was an old masonic temple that was renovated and is brand new. The rooms have modern furnishings, flat screen tvs that have plug ins for ipods, large bathrooms with marble sinks, and super comfy beds.

Unique Quality: They have a great fitness center open 24 hrs, very nice concierge lounge and a cool bar/restaurant/lounge called Temple in the lower level of the hotel.

Directions: by the capitol building,
