We ended up here by happy accident and nada very nice stay. It is very conveniently located. You can walk to the Convention Center and to lots of restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. And the outdoor restaurant/bar had a jazz group playing on weekend nights.

Amazing place! We stopped over for one night. The room was beautiful and we had excellent service. Truly enjoyed the breakfast in bed service. Restaurant was excellent. We were in walking distance from restaurants and other sites. We received a discount, but it is worth the money.

We stayed at the Hotel Providence for one night while attending a graduation. The room was clean, the staff was nice, and the beds were super comfortable. The only complaint is the amount they charged to park our car for the night….$28. But I guess that is what happens in the older cities with limited parking. I did like that...
