About Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel, Providence

Luxury Providence city-center hotel with restaurant

Steps from the capitol

In a restored, historic 1920s building, The Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel is across the street from Rhode Island State House. You’re next to Veterans Memorial Auditorium, and the acclaimed WaterFire sculpture at Waterplace Park is an 8-minute walk.

Shopping and the arts

You’re a 2-minute walk from Providence Place Mall and its array of casual shops and high-end stores like Swarovski and Tiffany & Co. If you feel like some culture, you can drive 5 minutes and catch a musical or theatrical event at the Providence Performing Arts Center.

Casual in-house dining

Casual New American cuisine, craft cocktails, and hearty breakfasts are served up at Public Kitchen & Bar, the hotel’s flagship restaurant. The elegant lobby is a cool place to use the free public WiFi, and the fitness center will help you stick to your workout regime.

Art Deco guestrooms

Deep reds, dark woods, and black furniture bring the hotel’s refined Art Deco vibe to each of its 264 guestrooms. Amenities such as WiFi, cable TV, and a mini-fridge help you enjoy your surroundings, while marble bathrooms add a touch of luxury. The non-suite guestrooms, public spaces, and lobby were recently renovated in December 2015.

Very comfortable stay for my family
The front desk offered to upgrade us to a room with two queen sized beds when they realized we had our daughter with us. The weather was so chilly and rainy that we elected to eat in the hotel restaurant and had a yummy meal of burgers, fries, and salad in very comfortable surroundings. The beds and pillows were quite cozy. We’d definitely stay here again.

My secret spot!
My favorite place to stay in Providence - elegant and welcoming... But it’s my secret, so don’t tell anyone...
John, us1 night trip
Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel, Providence
Never a disappointment!
We love the location of the Renaissance. We had a great view of the State House this time! New chef and new menu and the Public House (internal restaurant) and it was quite tasty. Our new favorite bartender - Jack, was the best in the biz! Only one criticism and that is the valet. You are charged to park, but the valet comes across as they do not want to go out of the way to help.
