Hotel Providence is the city’s only Four Diamond luxury boutique hotel. Originally built in 1882, our historic building operated as a hotel for over 90 years, before being restored the hotel to its original splendor and reopening as Hotel Providence in 2005. Located in the heart of the thriving Downcity Arts and Theater District, we have received AAA’s Four Diamond Award every year since.

Step inside a hotel that captures the true essence of Providence. Our style is timeless, refined luxury. Spaces are filled with classic novels and unique works of art. From art exhibitions in our lobby to live jazz in our restaurant, we are passionate about connecting our guests with Rhode Island history, artists, and musicians. While the art you find throughout the hotel came from all over the world, we are particularly proud of the chine-collé prints found in each room, commissioned for the hotel and created by local artist and RISD professor Nancy Friese.

We are a short walk to the RISD campus, and two blocks from the RISD student-run gallery on Westminster Street. Also in our neighborhood you will find the Providence Performing Arts Center, Trinity Repertory Company, and the Rhode Island Convention Center. Unique shops, independent restaurants, and art galleries are right outside our front door. Above all else, we invite you to experience our personalized service, not found in any other hotel in Providence. Come stay and see why RISD visitors have chosen Hotel Providence over the past century.
