Recent guest reviews

we stayed in the suite. Peeling paint on ceiling, stain in shower floor, very low pressure in shower and complicated shower faucet. View, bed sheets, and furniture was great. They offered free coffee that was not worth it. Water bottles in the room was for sale, Not free!

Paint Chips falling off ceiling, and mold in the shower

Delightful! Short staffed but those who are there are kind and helpful. Our room was charming. We’ll be back!

Beautiful renovations. Super comfy beds

Such a beautiful hotel, well-maintained and gorgeous and fun décor. The onsite coffee shop was super handy and it looks like a restaurant is opening up soon. One thing to keep in mind is that the area directly in front of the property is a park and bus depot, which seems to be a hang out for drug activity. But we never felt unsafe, just not a pleasant walk in the immediate environs. We would absolutely stay in the hotel again, all things considered.

Nice hotel conveniently located near downtown river front and brown university.

Amazing decor and lovely vintage vibe gives it an old fashioned look

I wanted to rate this place Hi I really did I really did but I couldn't. The the curtains would not close so light flooded so light flooded the room in the morning.

Fun and comfortable spaces, nice details, friendly and helpful staff.

Did not like parking - far from hotel.

Was close to nice restaurants and had a park right in front of property. I traveled with my dog so this was convenient

Haunted hotel. It’s the Biltmore Providence Hotel. Google it. Wish we had known. It looks like the Cecil Hotel in L.A. It’s been renovated on inside but the creepy original look is obvious. It’s had tons of owners, originally built by a Satanist, tons of murders, suicide, mob crime, children rape, all happened here. If that bothers you, look elsewhere. It has inspired famous movies like The Shining and Bates Motel. We just feel you should know first. Our room was great but we were put on the 15th floor, same floor as a loud, drunk wedding party who were up all day and night partying and yelling. Walls are paper thin. We had to put on our rain sounds on our phone just to get by. It’s not in the best area. It’s a pain to walk to the mall across the way. Front desk didn’t even know the bridge to the mall is via elevator on 2nd floor in Omni hotel. They told us it was a “separate elevator next to Omni”. They don’t know crap. No food in hotel, just average coffee in adjoining coffee bar but Bolt Coffee around the corner is better so don’t stand in that long line. Stay by the water!! Don’t stay here. You’re kind of stuck.

The staff at the Graduate, in a time where everyone is anxious and overwhelmed, was simply excellent. they are nice, caring and attentive.
