Many people stay in motels on the outskirts that offer good value, but central hotels and B&Bs are within walking distance of most attractions.




Hotels in Central Providence

The Graduate Providence Hotel

Right on Kennedy Plaza in the very center of Providence is the city's coolest hotel. Designed by Warren and Wetmore, architects of New York City's Grand Central Terminal, and opened in 1922 as the Providence Biltmore, its Beaux Arts ambience and architecture take you back to the Roaring Twenties and the Jazz Age. The Graduate Providence, as it is now named, is where you re-live Providence's history, in style and comfort, and in the most convenient location in the city. More...

The Westin Providence

The 364-room Westin is part of the vast city-center complex that includes the Rhode Island Convention Center and Providence Place Mall. It has fitness and spa facilities, as well as an indoor heated swimming pool. More...

Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel

Designed as a grand Masonic Temple, the building was never completed as such, but instead became a grand hotel, well located right in the center of the city. More...

Hampton Inn & Suites Providence Downtown

Good value! Breakfast, Wifi Internet, exercise room and business center are all included in the rates here, and the location in the city center is quite convenient. More...

Hotel Providence

Want a boutique hotel right in the city center, walking distance to most sights, with careful service? With good value-for-money hospitality packages, especially for weekends, and theme "workshops" on interesting topics? That would be the Hotel Providence, 139 Mathewson Street. More...

Christopher Dodge House B&B

This 3-star, 14-room bed-and-breakfast inn in an 1858 brick mansion is just west of the Rhode Island State House and a 20-minute walk northwest of Kennedy Plaza, and about the same from Brown University. Breakfast, wifi and off-street parking are included in the rates. More...

Hotels on the Outskirts
& Near the Airport

Most of Providence's hotel capacity is in the neighboring cities of Warwick near the airport to the south, Pawtucket to the north toward Boston on I-95, and Seekonk MA on I-195, the road to Cape Cod. More...

As most of these hotels and motels are right off the highway, it's a good idea to pick them according to your plans for tomorrow: if it's evening as you approach Providence, stay in Warwick and then see Providence the next day; if it's early in the day, tour through Providence and then head out I-95 to Pawtucket if your next stop is Boston, or I-195 to Seekonk if you're headed for Cape Cod.

Nylo Providence/Warwick

This fine 155-room hotel 11 miles (18 km) south of Providence has mod decor, good views of the Pawtuxet River, a restaurant-bar open 24 hours a day, sauna and fitness center, and a free shuttle van to and from T F Green Airport. More...

Comfort Inn Airport Warwick

Just off I-95 in Pawtucket, a few miles north of Providence, this is your best bet. The 124-room hotel has an indoor heated pool, a sauna, an adjacent restaurant, and offers free shuttle service to T F Green State Airport. 2 George St, Pawtucket RI 02860. More...
