We came on our anniversary. Very helpful front desk manager Pamela Halloway gave us great suggestions—great food, bars, and local quaint sights.
Enjoyed Henningways—yes that’s the spelling—seafood restaurant; Roger Williams park and botanical gardens; and cute shops and pubs on Wickenden St.
Hotel itself is clean and stylish. Attractive rooms, fun pool, and good bar.
I recently dined at the Marriott bluefin grille and I must say the food was exceptional. The salmon I had was very fresh and one of the best I’ve had in a while. My server Yissell did a great job taking care of me. She went above and beyond for me because I am an extremely picky eater. She accommodated all of my conditions and I will definitely be back again soon.
