The hotel staff is always very nice and accommodating. The food at the hotel is excellent and my favorite is the rosemary chicken wings. The hotel is very close to many things and is basically across the street from the capitol building, so walking to destinations is easy and safe. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. I have stayed at this hotel numerous times, including for a week earlier this year. It's my favorite hotel in Providence
We arrived just as they were opening for Saturday lunch and there was no one there. The staff responded pretty well and after a few minutes we were able to order. The food was quite good. A fun, fancy clam chowder, as well as an "adult grill cheese"and BLT. We left well fed and relaxed. Nice play list, per Patrick......
