Courtyard Providence Downtown
Lonely Planet review
Friendly staff and an ace location offset the just-average room fittings at this riverfront hotel. It's nestled in the midst of Providence's old railway station, now converted into a mecca of hip restaurants and pubs.
Although it was built in the 1990s you'll swear this hotel has been here 100 years. To blend with its yesteryear surroundings the architect imported special salmon-colored bricks that match the adjacent historic buildings. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean, though the decor is run of the mill. Request an upper-floor riverfront room for a great view clear up to the Statehouse. Hotel amenities include a small indoor pool and a simple fitness room. But the real action is out the front door - a microbrewery, a wine bar and some of Providence's top restaurants are just steps away. If you hit a night when the city's famed WaterFire performance takes over the river, you'll have the best seat in town.
