Providence Biltmore

Kennedy Plaza, 11 Dorrance St., Downcity, Providence, Rhode Island, 02903, USA

The city's beloved landmark since 1922, and now part of the Hilton Curio Collection, the Biltmore has been treated to a multimillion-dollar renovation that has brought guest rooms well into the 21st century. Originally designed by New York City architects Warren and Wetmore (of Grand Central Terminal fame), the Biltmore has hosted orchestras led by Benny Goodman and Jimmy Dorsey, and once froze its Garden Room floor for Sonja Henie's ice-skating show. It's still a big election-night gathering place for local politicians. Located off the lobby are McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant, a Starbucks, and a spa. The hotel revels in nostalgia for its flapper heyday, but it remains a draw for tourists because of its attention to service and detail.
