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.

Another visit to Providence

Stayed at the Biltmore again. This time I got a small cozy room instead of the junior suite. The location is still great, within walking distance of restaurants and bars.

Had the four-course dinner at Birch. It' s a tiny restaurant with good attention to detail. Not NY but it's pretty good for Providence.

Missing items

I would like to add to my previous review: after 11 days from reporting the items that were mistakenly taken from my room, and retrieved by the staff, I still have not received them back via the FedEx package that they (supposedly) sent.

Great location and a deal

Not sure how but I got a junior suite for $149 in middle of October. Right downtown Providence in the arts district. Lots of local restaurants. A few blocks away is the mall full of chain retailers and restaurants. My only comment is I found a spot on the linen but that could have been me. The rest of the room was spotless. I just booked next week and looking forward to it.

Good hotel

The hotel is a nice central location, I was lucky (I think) to book a junior king suite, very comfortable room, quality beds and pillows; I slept really well. An unfortunate accident ruined the trip: my toiletries (easily replaced) and my electric shaver (top of the line Philips, worth >120$) disappeared after the maid cleaned. Perhaps he/she thought I was staying only for one night? At any rate when I reported this, the staff was very kind, replaced the basic toiletries, but was unable (or unwilling based on the policies of the hotel) to access the lost & found room (whose manager was out (it was about 9pm) and wouldn't be back till 8am, and I was leaving at 5am). So I had to leave without my stuff. The day afterwards in the afternoon I got a call from the lost & found manager, who shipped the items (I hope) - after suggesting that I should pay the shipping cost - a suggestion which I firmly (and successfully) refused. At no point he apologized (while the staff at the hotel did). So all was well in the end (assuming I'll indeed get my items back), but frankly this is the first time such an accident happens to me in 15 years of travel, and it could have been resolved much more easily with access to the lost & found, instead of waiting a day and then for the shipping. Other than that, good hotel in good location downtown Providence.

Beautiful room!

We had a 2 room Jr king suite, very spacious, elegantly redone. Room was immaculate. Staff extremely courteous and graciously relocated us to another room when our air conditioning wouldn't cool below 78. Parking is $28/day. Friendly valet recommended Classic Cafe for breakfast, excellent diner with huge portions.

Not bad at all

Old school ritzy feel. Right in the middle of downtown, next to a huge mall and across the street from a park. Got the King suite which was pretty nice. only thing that i could complain about is that they didnt turn down my room one day and then the following day the cleaning person bust in my room at 8:30 am..
