Fodor's Review

The city's beloved landmark since 1922, the Providence Biltmore has been treated to a multimillion-dollar renovation that has brought the rooms up to the 21st century. Designed by New York architects Warren and Wetmore (of Grand Central Station 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 remains a draw for tourists because of its attention to service and detail.

Perfect place to stay

We were very pleased with the outstanding service, beginning when we pulled up to front of hotel, to the lobby desk, to the room attendants. Hotel lobby is lovely, from the past, with ambiance. The room was a 2 room suite with large windows overlooking the city. Great central location for all you do. Would definitely recommend.

Worth the extra dollars

I stayed here one night, instead of the Radisson Providence Harbor, which looked like it was in a dodgy area. It was worth the extra cost. We got upgraded to a junior suite, complimentary, which had a flat screen tv in the bed area. The beds were super comfortable and had nice sheets and plenty of pillows. The bathroom was probably the only part of the room that didn't live up to the rest of the hotel. The hotel lobby is beautiful. There was

no internet access in the rooms.
