Perfect Celebration spot

We were able to check in early as requested, to start our get away early. We quickly valet parked, dropped off our bags, and took the elevator straight to "Public", their restaurant / bar. The apps and drinks were perfect. The valet was able to get us a van that quickly got us to Atwells Ave. Our room was on the 4th floor and overlooked the state house. Just gorgeous. The beds were quite comfy after a night out.. Luckily, the room was very quiet for us. Our stay couldn't have been better.

Getaway Weekend

A weekend getaway for my husband and I. Upon check we requested a quieter room and recieved an end room, thought it was still loud at 1 am when we were going to bed. Our bathroom's hot water was horrible in the shower. It was inconsistantly hot and cold and needed constant adjusting. We were also treated to protesters outside complaining about the non union workers they hire. They were pretty loud as we could hear them around the side. They were not there when we got back. The location was good. My husband wasn't a huge fan of the bed but I thought it was comfy. The room was clean and room service was timely and the food was good.

Very clean hotel!

I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the Renaissance. The location was great for people who want to utilize the Providence Place Mall and Dave and Busters and restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The only con I would mention was the lack of on site free parking. They have valet which is $28 or a walk to the Mall parking garage which is $25 overnight.

The Renaissance is literally a 3 minute walk from the Cheesecake Factory if that is the restaurant that your planning on going to.

Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel

This beautiful hotel is in the center of Providence next to Providence Place shopping. The car valet staff was courteous and very accommodating. The desk staff was efficient but cool, not much of a welcoming from them. As you have noticed this hotel is quite expensive with high end toiletries (Aveda) and plush bedding BUT no turndown service, bottled water in the room or even a chocolate on the pillow.
