Tired

This hotel seems a bit tired and the staff overwhelmed. Lots of mistakes and they failed to fix a broken blind despite several requests. Way too expensive for this lack of quality.

Beautiful old hotel

Very centrally located. Old hotel with lots of history. Rooms are small and not as modern. Pricey for the off season.

Perfect location in Providence

We got a great deal on this hotel, which made the experience even better. They put our 2 Jr. Suites across the hall from each other and they were perfect for a family gathering. The restaurant food was great but service was a bit inconsistent.

Conference Downtown

The Biltmore is located next to the conference center downtown and offered a Jr. Suite for a rate better than the other recommended hotels. Although it is an older hotel, it was neat and modern throughout. I was very pleased and would stay here again.
