The Renaissance Providence Downtown is definitely one of Rhode Island's most stately and elegant places to stay. The Freemasons began construction on the massive edifice during the Roaring Twenties, but with the advent of the Great Depression, work came to a halt in 1929. It was abandoned for years until the city began to repair its sister building in the 1980s (the adjoining Veteran's Memorial Auditorium) and in 2004 revitalization began on the 'Temple.' The hotel renovation maintained the original facade built in Greek-Revival style so its architecture is still very apparent upon its facade. Inside however, the interior is entirely new and all of the well-appointed rooms contain the amenities in which the Renaissance brand is known to provide its guests, such as luxurious bedding and toiletries, video games and even a wet-bar. Most of the rooms also have great views of the Capitol Building and its location is ultra-convenient for venturing out on foot to explore downtown.
Graduate Providence rightly bills itself as the Grande Dame of Providence hotels. Built in 1922, this elegant building stands tall in the heart of downtown Providence, right in front of the Fleet Skating Rink and a short distance from Waterplace Park. Once you enter its large lobby, complete with crystal chandeliers, plush period style furnishings and glass elevator, you will feel as if you stepped into the era of the 'Roaring Twenties. The rooms have a modern decor, yet there are still remnants of the building's archaic grandeur in each space. Each room comes equipped with a refrigerator, iHome entertainment system and complimentary Wi-Fi. The property is now on the list of the Historic Hotels of America.
