You can hear through the walls! The couple next door had a nasty fight at 3 a.m. We called the front desk; security went up 15 minutes later and banged on the door. At 6:00 in the morning it started again. We got up and left early; explained the problem to the manager. He took my name and number and said that the hotel would contact us. They did not have stirrers for the coffee in the room. There was one tiny bottle of water. They did not. We won't go back! EVER!

Thank you for taking the time to provide our team with feedback from your recent stay at the Renaissance Providence. We apologize for the noise made from other guests on your floor but are pleased our security team was able to quickly address the situation. We can assure you that this is not the norm and will pass this on to the correct department. We hope to have the opportunity to show you on future trips to Providence that this is not the norm. Thank you again for your feedback.

Mc Phee/Hayes wedding

Everything was fantastic until check out. Than it all went to pot. An hour and fifteen minutes for a bell hop while our car sat in front running the entire time. Our friends car was lost. His wife found it after waiting for over 2 hours.

It was nice and kind staff.

Pros: Location.
Cons: I hope there were vending machine for drink or snacks.
The room was clean and neat. First night, I couldn't sleep because of the noise, I asked and they change the room.

Dear Lovelymin, Thank you for your recent stay at our hotel. I am pleased you found the location to be convenient for your travel in Providence. I apologize that you were inconvenienced by noise. It is for that reason that we do not have vending machines on our guest floors. We do have a retail shop adjacent to the Reception Desk where we have snacks and beverages available for our guests. We look forward to your return to Providence. Warm regards, Kimberly Greene/General Manager
